The Edgar Rohr Memorial Car Meet is celebrating their 36th annual meet. The show is named in honor of Edgar Rohr, one of the Region’s charter members, past president of the AACA and former mayor of Manassas. A high point in the show will be the awards presentation which features the top three vehicles in each class, seven Best of Show awards and the awarding of the Rohr Trophy. The Region is honored each year to have Chip Rohr, Edgar Rohr’s son, and his wife, Nancy, selecting the winner and presenting the highly coveted trophy.
There will also be a Mayor’s Choice award chosen and presented by Major Harry J. (Hal) Parrish, Jr. and a Youth Choice award chosen and presented by the reigning Miss American Sweetheart Megan Lawless.
It will feature 150+ of the finest motorized vehicles in the area. Bring your picnic, lawn chairs, and plan a day of exciting cars of the past with a variety of antique and classic vehicles…possibly some that you’ll have fond memories of seeing. There’ll be all types of vehicles on display, i.e., antiques, trucks, military vehicles, motorcycles, street rods, classics, and emergency vehicles. The classic and antiques range from the early 1900’s to 1986.
You don’t want to miss this, there’ll be a Ford Model T demonstration team who takes a disassembled Ford Model T, puts it back together, and it will be driven off the show field within 15 minutes.
This will be great for History Buffs – spectators and participants can also enjoy a tour of the Manassas Museum to peruse the displays regarding the history of the Manassas area. You won’t want to miss this either, local police and fire departments will be there to display both their antiques and new apparatus.
NOTE: All judged classes follow AACA judging rules and you must have a fire extinguisher with your vehicle.
