Endless Summer Cruisin 2016

For the 19th year Endless Summer Cruisin brought thousands of car enthusiasts to Ocean City Maryland October 6-7-8-9, 2016 for the four day automotive event.  From wild customs, to cool classics, trick trucks and more, all could be seen cruisin the streets as well as participating in car shows at the Inlet, Convention Center and various satellite shows throughout the city including Embers/Blu Crabhouse, Hooters Restaurant, Gold Coast Mall, Marina Deck, Phillips Seafood House, Phillips Crab House, Ropewalk OC, Seacrets, Tanger Outlets and more.

Joining the fun at this year’s Endless Summer Cruisin, from the hit TV show Bitchin Rides, Dave Kindig was inside the OC Convnention Center on Saturday.  Dave signed autographs, posed for pics and talked about all the fun they have on the show plus his love for cars.  In addition, legendary custom car builder Gene Winfield was at the event Friday, Saturday and Sunday for meet and greets.  Banners signed by Dave Kindig and Gene Winfield were auctioned off on Sunday and over $1,000 was raised for Building Better Days.

In addition to Endless Summer Cruisin, the 36th Annual Hot Rod & Custom Car Show took place inside the OC Convention Center Thursday, Friday and Saturday.  Some of the best rides in the mid-Atlantic were on display.  Cash prizes were awarded to the elite 8 and trophies were awarded.  For more information on the inside show visit OceanCityCarShows.com.  Plus inside the Convention Center participants and spectators could check out the 66 Batmobile Show Car and the Back to the Future Tribute display with the DeLorean Show Car and “Marty McFly” Impersonator.

Some of the top National names in the country were on display at Manufacturers Midway located at the Inlet parking lot including Advance Auto Parts, AMSOIL, Chevy Performance, Holley, Maryland Lottery, Miller Electric, Optima Batteries, Slide-Lok, Sundance Vacations,  Wissel & Walsh Insurance and more. Inside the OC Convention Center there was Treasured Motorcar Services along with automotive, nostalgia, and arts and crafts vendors.

New for the fall event, Express Auctioneers hosted a Collector Car Auction inside the OC Convention Center.  Lots of nice rides were auctioned off and many found new owners.  For more information on the Auction please visit occollectorcars.com

One of the highlights of Endless Summer Cruisin were the boardwalk parades which took place Thursday, Friday and Saturday mornings.  It was so nice to have the sun shining as the cars cruised down the historic OC boardwalk.

Friday night the LED and Neon Light Show took place on the Boardwalk at South First Street.  Spectators walking the boardwalk could see the cars light up the night pus Trimpers Rides opened the Mirror Maze for all participants to enjoy free of charge.

Throughout the weekend there was live music by Golden Touch and Mook Jones plus Deejay Michael Jay spinning Golden Oldies and Seaside Jimmy playing good time rock n roll.

On Sunday the show wrapped up with the Grand Finale Awards. This year with rain on Sunday the awards were held inside at the Big Easy on 60th Street.  Everyone was able to enjoy being dry during the awards plus many ordered delicious food and drinks.  By the end of the event over 400 awards were presented and over $10,000 in cash and giveaways.

We hope everyone had a great time at Endless Summer Cruisin and a safe drive home.  We look forward to seeing you next year, October 5-6-7-8, 2017 for the 20th Annual Endless Summer Cruisin.
