|Welcome to the official Ghent Cruiser's website! |
The Ghent Cruisers are a group of classic car and
street rod enthusiasts from the Ghent, Minnesota area.
We enjoy showing our vehicles by attending area car shows and cruising around southwest Minnesota.
The Ghent Cruisers sponsor the Ghent Belgian-American Days Car Show held during Belgian-American Days which is always the first weekend in August. This year the 9th annual car show was held on August 1, 2015. We began out show with the Belgian National Anthem and then the United States of America National Anthem. We had a large turnout with 91 vehicles shown including cars, trucks, motorcycles, tractors, and rat rods. We had a trivia contest featuring cars in movies and on TV. Mylan Ray of KISD was our DJ and anouncer playing his "Car-tunes". This was the fourth year that we made our own custom-made Piston Awards from a used piston which was powder coated and then mounted on an oak base. We gave trophies for the top sixteen vehicles, tractor, motorcycle, and rat rod awards. We also gave awards for People's Choice, Mayor's Choice, and of course, Best of Show.
Once again we had perfect weather for the spectators and participants alike to enjoy the shady street, good food, fabulous door prizes, wonderful 50's and 60's music, trivia questions, and great comradery with other car enthusiasts.
Pictures of past car shows can be found in the image gallery under car show pics.
Thank you to all who attended our show this year, and to those who sponsored, organized and worked hard to make our show a success.
Next year, on August 6, 2016, we will be celebrating our 10th car show. Be sure to watch for information on this mile stone. One of the plans are for us to increase the amount of trophies awarded. There will be many more fun things scheduled.
