Chargers, Camaros, pickup trucks, roadsters, ’57 Chevys and others can be found at cruise-ins hosted by the Oldies But Goodies Classic Cruizers car club.

Cruise-ins are held the first Saturday of the month until September, with the first scheduled April 6 at the Keystone Tractor Museum, 880 W. Roslyn Road in Colonial Heights.

Money earned from the cruise-ins and special events goes to wounded veterans, club president Bruce Vecchioni said. “Once a year, we have a special event at the Beacon Theatre (in Hopewell) and present the money directly to the veterans,” he said. “Their faces just light up. They hug you and are so grateful. It’s a great feeling to help them.”

The car club was formed Sept. 1, 1998 to bring together people who have an interest in cars and trucks 20 years old and older. Their first sponsored show was in Franklin in October 1999.

However, the club does much more than sit around and gaze at restored and preserved vehicles. It has raised and donated thousands of dollars to various charities over the years, including Children’s Miracle Network, the Muscular Dystrophy Association, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the Enon Volunteer Fire Department.

The club also supports Wreaths Across America and placed 1,000 wreaths in City Point Cemetery last year.

“It’s fun, companionship with other car buffs and it’s like a brotherhood,” Vecchioni said. “We help each out if there is a need.”
