2017 Car Show

The 2017, 29th Annual Cruise Night and Car Show were a huge success!

Over 140 vehicles lined up in the Open Header Cruies at the Coloma Antique Mall to make their way through downtown Coloma, across Paw Paw Avenue and through Watervliet. They were joined back at our facility by several hundred participants waiting on their arrival. The night was shortened up a bit by a light rain but most of the night was still very enjoyable.

On Saturday Noisefest, the Chassis Dyno, Engine Builders Challenge and Terry McMillen’s Amalie Oil/Allstar Performance top fuel dragster and Nitro University. The day was topped off with near perfect weather. Over 1,200 show cars and over 13,000 spectators came to enjoy a great day at Lane Automotive.
