Sandy Cruisin' Car Show returns on Sept. 10 posted on 09/01/2022

Cliff Mudder has brought his 1934 Ford three-window coupe to the Sandy Cruisin’ Car Show since 2011, when he first entered while it was still under construction. Last year, Mudder took home Best of Show and the Best of 1930s awards, and he’s hoping to return this year to defend those titles.

“I still love getting the car out,” Mudder said, noting when he first bought it the car was in a box and he had to put it together. “We’ve always got a lot of compliments.”

This year’s Sandy Cruisin’ Car Show will take place on Saturday, Sept. 10, opening at 8 a.m. for check-in and 9 a.m. for the general public, on the grounds of the St. Michael Catholic Church, 18090 SE Langensand Road in Sandy.

Organizer Anne Chambers noted that this will be the 24th year for the event (which was not held in 2020 due to the pandemic), and that it originated as part of the Sandy Oktoberfest.

The event features raffles all day long, music, food and more, with trophies in more than 20 classes of cars awarded at 2:30 p.m. Cars must be checked in by noon to be eligible for awards, while ballots must be returned by 12:30 p.m. There is a $15 registration fee for the first class of car and each additional class is $10.

Chambers reported that when the event returned last year after a one-year hiatus, it turned out to be the biggest one yet, with more than 240 cars taking part.

“I think everybody really missed getting out,” she said, noting that as many as 200 cars could be expected this year.

Chambers added that the money raised will be used locally, including St. Vincent de Paul programs that support those in need.

And while the cars draw the crowds, Mudder noted that what he enjoys most about these events is meeting new people and connecting with friends.

“We have met so many people, they’re closer to me than my brothers,” he said. “When you’re not there, you’re missed.”
