Keeping It Classic

Every car has a story. And just about every classic car owner loves to share the tale of their vehicle’s humble beginnings, where they discovered their prized possession, and how they methodically and painstakingly restored or modified it into a head turning work of art on wheels. Just ask Kerrie Tripp of the Greater Bangor Convention and Visitors Bureau. This September will be the 10th year the Bangor CVB has hosted the Wheels on the Waterfront car show.

“You’ve got the really classic cars that have been brought back to specific modifications. You have the classic cars that have kits on them that are different and unique. You have brand new cars from today and everything in between,” explained Tripp, the executive director for the Bangor CVB. “And car people love to hang around with other car people. These are wonderful, wonderful people that love to have conversations about their cars, how they’ve worked on their car, or the story behind that particular car.”

The Wheels on the Waterfront car show is now one of the largest car shows held each summer in Maine. Tripp said last year 352 classic automobile owners participated in the event.
