“This is a fun community car show where anyone can enter their favorite vehicle or simply come and see a wide variety of ‘rides’ in one place, “explains Gary Lambert, Vice President of Dreamz II Reality Motorsports(DIIR), a Truck/Auto/Motorcycle Hobbyist Club that is presenting the event in cooperation with Stop & Shop Supermarket and local businesses. “We anticipate hundreds of entries from owners of ‘imports’ to ‘exotics’ to ‘classics’ to those who simply want to show off their everyday vehicles,” says Lambert, the owner of Copy Central in Windsor, which provides copy, print and postal services to businesses and individuals. “It’s a great way to support the Windsor Police Cadets, a terrific local organization.”
