The E.C. Cruisers have been showing off vintage cars and trucks for a quarter-century, raising money in the process for the Westmoreland County Children’s Bureau Christmas fund.

This year’s show, held Sept. 15 at the Delmont Volunteer Fire Department, saw a record 180 registered cars and a bump in the attendance, according to club member Tom Steiner.

“The final figures are yet to be tallied, but this anniversary cruise is sure to be the most successful to date,” he said. “It’ll probably push the total donated over the past 25 years well over the $100,000 mark.”

The club itself is 27 years old, and began with a group of employees from the Elliott Co. in Jeannette.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
