This past Saturday, Tioga County celebrated its annual car show. This year’s event was held at Eisenhauer’s Tioga County Harley-Davidson, located at 2911 South Main Street, Mansfield, PA. There were lots of cars, and lots of fun, too! Our Home Page cameras were there.

What makes the car show so fantastic? Many say the cars. But, even more say: the people.

Former President of the Tyoga County Motor Club, Jeff Flannery, says the combination of the Harleys and the cars helps make the whole thing unique. The camaraderie is enjoyed by all. Good people, fantastic cars, and amazing bikes make a super show.

The ages of presenters ran across the entire spectrum of car enthusiasts. The younger generation was there with their more modern or foreign cars, and the older generation was there with their V-8s and classics.

The show is open to anyone with a special car.
“It can be an antique car, a collector car, or any show-car that’s special to the person,” says Flannery.
It’s a great recipe for growth and bringing in the next generation of car lovers.

The local people make this show what it is today. It’s not only a good time – but a very educational experience as well. Jerry DeLong from Wellsboro, PA has been doing this car show for 16 years. He especially likes the older vehicles. This year he was there to show his 1970 Jeepster Commando. (Wait until you see this vehicle!) It’s forty-seven years old, and it only has 41,000 miles on it.

Vaughn Ceccacci just retired from the military and has been participating in this car show for the last couple of years. Vaughn was showing his 1986 Ford Highway Patrol car. With only a hundred and forty-seven cars of this type put in service, this unique patrol car is a five-speed.

Tyler Russell from Lawrenceville, PA has been coming to this car show for the past few years. As one of the younger guys, he represented the next generation of car enthusiasts and was showcasing his blue-pearl 2012 Subaru Impreza WRX STI. It’s all-wheel-drive with power under the hood to spare. Be sure to check out Tyler’s ride in today’s broadcast.

Ron Stager brought his 1934 Chevy. He has been attending car shows since 1992. This Chevy is Ron’s dream car. He worked on his car “every waking moment for three summers,” says Ron, to restore this treasure. Ron is still working out some bugs, but he started his car for the Home Page cameras without a problem.

If you love cars and people, you can find out more about this car show, and the Tyoga County Motor Club through their group on Facebook. You can also visit their official website here.

Have fun and drive safely!
