COLLEGEVILLE, PA — It doesn’t matter if it’s a souped-up ’66 Mustang or a factory stock ’75 Corvette, every car will have a story to tell at the 15th Annual “Main Street Drag” on Sunday.
And you can bet that on the day when Collegeville turns into the horsepower capital of Montgomery County, drawing thousands of gearheads and even casual car buffs into town, all car owners exhibiting their prize metal will be happy to share every last personal historical detail with the crowds.
Many of the gleaming sculptures of automotive grace and symmetry lined up on Main Street from Third to Ninth avenues will be accustomed to the bumper-to-bumper glory.
But some, like Al Brooks’ red ’66 Chevy II Nova SS with black interior, will have been coaxed out of their garages and jump-started into the limelight.
Some recession-buster news! Gas prices are expected to drop between 10 and 15 cents a gallon after the end of summer holiday. That is, barring any disasters or unforseen circumstances. Oil prices are falling as consumers are staying closer to home this summer and not spending money fearing a relapse in the economy (smart move).
