Socially-distanced Car Cruise takes place in Beckley

BECKLEY, WV (WOAY) – This weekend the Shade Tree Car Club and Smooth Impressions Car Club partnered with Beckley Events to hold a mobile car show.

The idea was meant to hold a car show without the dangers of large crowds. Car owners drove their old, new and unique vehicles around the Bowling Addition neighborhood for close to an hour.

Secretary and treasurer of Shade Tree Car Club Stephanie French says this type of car show is much more different than what they’re typically used to.

“Well other car shows we actually have trophies, we have awards, people get out and get involved. We have lots of contests and it’s a good time to spread togetherness and be with your friends. Today unfortunately we have to do a no-contact cruise where you have to stay in your car to practice our social distancing,” French said.  

More cruises will likely take place in the near future for other neighborhoods in Beckley.
