Established in the summer of 2003 with just three members, the Colonial Beach Cruisers car club now stands at nearly 150 members.
The founders set out to establish a car club free of politics, and with no rules, no dues, and no meetings. These folks provide show cars in support of various non-profits and town events like the Potomac River Festival, Christmas Parade, CBHS Homecoming, CB Rescue Squad car show, and the CB Chamber of Commerce car show.
The “Colonial Beach Cruisers” car club put out boxes for the “Toys for Tots” campaign effective Friday, November 25, 2016. in the following locations:
DeAtley’s Service Center
Tattle Tale Coffee Shop
Club members are from Colonial Beach, Montross, Callao, King George, Woodbridge, Fredericksburg, Stafford, Alexandria, Arlington in Virginia and Waldorf in Maryland. Members own over 400 vehicles including street rods, classic, antiques, and, my favorite: muscle cars (old and new).
One member (Jim Still) has a 1954 Ford Museum in Colonial Beach featuring every model produced that year.
The club's members used to display their cars at the former Fat Freda's Restaurant (later Kelsea's Kitchen and now Shady Lane Crabhouse) on the 1st and 3rd Fridays during March thru October. They called it "Cruise-Ins"
The club's temporary website is at http://57fordragtop.wordpress.com/
