2022 Route 66 Car Club of Flagstaff 3rd Annual Charity Car Show at Thunder-Over-Flagstaff

AUGUST 27, 2022


Thanks to Robert Penhaker for being this year’s show chair! This year, 114 cars entered for judging, and there were more that opted out of judging, making for a well-attended show. Reviews from the participants were nearly unanimous in their praise: our guests had a fun time. The weather cooperated (yay), and the raffle and poker run all contributed to our charitable fund. Three of our crucial show committee members suffered catastrophes in the days immediately before the show, but other members swung into place, ensuring a smooth result. All agreed we have some of the best-looking awards around. OK – here are cars chosen this year. It’s a great-looking bunch!
