A note about the sponsors:

The Waukesha Old Car Club has existed for 32 years and is 120 members strong.  They engage in club oriented events such as cruise night — an event where members meet in their classic cars and go for a nice cruise – as well as picnics and other get-togethers.  They host annual events such as the car show, and the sock hop, thereby serving as a valuable community organization.  If you own a classic car or truck and may be interested in joining this group of respected individuals, be sure to visit their website for more details.
