Cruisin’ the 50’s Classic Cars to Drive You Wild

The 10th annual Cruisin’ the 50’s event will be held on Thursday, August 11, 2022 from 5 – 8 PM in downtown Newburyport, Massachusetts where the owners of amazing vintage automobiles showcase their works of art.

This premier classic car show features an exclusive group of specially selected cars from collectors who are invited to participate in the show.  In past years, Cruisin’ the 50’s has featured some high profile vehicles such as the DeLorean that brought us Back in Time from the classic Michael J. Fox movie “Back to the Future.” Another past favorite was the 1948 black Delahaye, hand built in Paris, France and owned by private collector Bruce Male of Swampscott, MA. The Cruisin’ the 50’s Car Show becomes more popular each year and local businesses enjoy being part of the fun! This video features a live 50’s band preforming while folks enjoy live music and check out classic cars in the Newburyport Bank parking lot.

Throughout the night while indulging in one gorgeous vintage vehicle after the next, great classic tunes will be broadcast live from the stage in Market Square complements of WXBJ Radio, Cool 94.1.
