The 18th annual Baker Car Show sponsored by the Classic Cruisers car club had a splendid showing of 77 cars and pickups from Montana, North Dakota and South Dakota. Exhibitors and enthusiasts gathered at the Baker Lake Gazebo on June 3rd to admire automobiles from the 1930’s through today. The sun was high and the weather favorable for a successful day.

 

The Eddy Award was given to Ed Quinn of Glendive.

As always, door prizes and drawings add to the show’s festivities. Andy Mjolhus of Killdeer, N.D. was this year’s lucky winner of the 50/50 drawing. The proceeds of the raffle are given as a local charitable donation by the car club. For the past 13 years Alvin Croy has given the Eddy Award to someone who is willing to help others, whether it is hunting for special auto parts or imparting special mechanical knowledge to those in need. This year’s award was presented to Ed Quinn of Glendive, Mont. The most members from a car club award, sponsored by Prairie Rose Classics, was given to the Badlands Drifters Car Club from Glendive with seven cars.

 

“This year we saw a lot of different cars and new people,” said Rose Sampson, Classic Cruisers member. “The show changes from year to year. We had participants from 16 different communities and seven car clubs. We missed Miles City though due to the road work on Highway 12.”
