OAK HILL, WV (WOAY) – Another socially distanced car cruise happened this weekend, this time by the West Virginia Classics Car Club in Fayette County.
Typically this is the time of year that the car club would host their regular shows, but the pandemic forced them to change their plans. In this cruise, cars simply lined up in a secluded location and drove through town to give onlookers a chance to see.
The operator of the Car Club Jamie Pritt says it was a way for them to focus on their hobby while staying safe.
“It lets us get our cars out, clean up. It gives us the feel of going to car shows. Still lets us get out in the community and let the community see our cars all cleaned up and what we’re working on. And just have a little fun,” Pritt said.
This cruise had roughly 50 cars and started in Fayette Square, went down Route 19 and finished up in downtown Oak Hill.
