Here’s a little history… The club was named after the Dixieland Drive-In on Victory Drive to promote interest in various types of special auto activities, create good fellowship and sportsmanship among members and to support charities as a nonprofit organization. In addition to the club’s monthly meeting at Lovezzola’s Pizza, the group goes to car shows on weekends throughout Georgia, the Carolinas and even Florida. They always wear their club shirts to show their pride in the club. Recently, the club has added a cruise on the first Wednesday of each month to Charleston, South Carolina. They enjoy the beautiful beaches of Georgia by taking their cars from the 1920s through the 1980s to Hilton Head, Tybee, and Jekyll Island. But the biggest event of the year for the best car club in the southeast is by far their annual show to raise money for charity.
The Dixieland Cruisers 26th annual Car and Motorcycle Show is set for March 29, 2014. It’s all happening at Windsor Forest Baptist Church at 12521 White Bluff Road in Savannah. Sponsored by Helton Motors, the show will have lots of shade and plenty of room. Live entertainment will be provided by The Mike Schulze Trio. There will be a 50/50 drawing, door prizes, vendors, a swap meet, ditty bags, dash plaques, top 40, lots of special awards and concessions. Judging will take place from noon to 1 p.m. with awards at 3 o’clock. Pre-registration is only $15 so it’s best to do so now! To sign up on the day of the show, it’s $20. You can register between 8 a.m. and noon.
Keep in mind, your car doesn’t have to be perfect and most aren’t. Hot rods, street rods, lead sleds, antiques and rust buckets are all welcome! To register your vehicle in advance, fill out this form.
