Sizzle-N-Chill Cruise In
On Saturday May 20 members headed to Sizzle-N-Chill for a cruise in. The day was a little chilly. The best thing for a chilly day is good hot food. So it all worked out. The Sizzle-N-Chill owner Ted Atanasoff provided three awards for Best Stock, Best Modified and Best Engine Compartment.
NMRA Motorsport Nationals Day 2
On Sunday May 7, several MCCPA members returned to the NMRA Motorsport Nationals Car Show. The word for the second day was MORE. MORE meaning more cars and unfortunately, more rain. The rain kept all the Fords off the drag track. Still overall a good day and MCCPA appreciated the opportunity to be the host club for the NMRA Motorsport Nationals at the Maple Grove Raceway.
NMRA Motorsport Nationals Day 1
On Saturday May 6, several MCCPA members braved the rain and drizzle to be the host club for the car show at the NMRA Motorsport Nationals. This is day one of the event. The NMRA Motorsport Nationals was held at the Maple Grove Raceway. Although most of the day was overcast, the car show still had a nice selection of nice Fords and Drag racing.
Real Steal Car Show
On Sunday, April 30, some MCCPA members attended the Real Steal Car Show. The Real Steal Car Show was sponsored by Rite Aid with all proceeds going to the Children's Miracle Network. This was the first time for this event and had a strong showing of 191 cars. Big Bird, Elmo and Cookie Monster even made an appearance!
Spring MCCPA Cruise to Penn's Cave and Beyond
On Saturday April 29, MCCPA held the annual Spring Cruise. This year the Cruise started with a meet up breakfast at Perkins, followed by a stop to pick up more members. All cruised to the Penn’s Cave in Centre Hall, PA. Most went on a very cool boat trip through Penn’s Cave. Next was a bus tour through the Wildlife Park. Most agreed they were hungry, so we cruised toward Penn State to Letterman’s Sports Grill for a late lunch. Since we were so close to Penn State we headed to the Penn State Creamery for some Penn State ice cream. What a great DAY!
CJ’s Spring Car Meet and Cruise 2017
On Sunday April 23rd members of MCCPA attended CJ Pony Parts Spring Car Meet and Cruise. There were over 130 cars in all. CJ's provided a free T-Shirt to each driver, and also provided Coffee, Juice, and Donuts. There was a 50/50 raffle to benefit the Humane Society of the Harrisburg area that was won by a MCCPA member, and also another raffle was held for gift cards. A MCCPA member also won a gift card. At the end of the Car Meet a check was presented to the Humane Society for $5,000. Around 12 noon a drivers meeting was held for those wishing to join the cruise thru the Harrisburg and Hershey area. A great time was had by all in attendance and a big thanks to CJ Pony Parts for providing the Hospitality, Coffee, Juice and Donuts.
Cruise to Grumpy's
On Saturday April 15 after the Sizzle-N-Chill Cruise in, several MCCPA members met up to cruise to the America on Wheels Museum. The highlight of the Museum was the Mustang II concept car. After the Museum, the group cruised to Grumpy’s Bar-B-Que Roadhouse for some great Barbeque. This was part 2 of the National Mustang day celebration. Cruise, Fun and Eat, See a pattern? MCCPA has a long tradition of including Grumpy’s in a Spring MCCPA Cruise.
Sizzle-N-Chill Cruise In
On Saturday April 15 members gathered at the Fort Hunter Mansion and Park to start a cruise to Sizzle-N-Chill for a show and great food. This was part 1 of the National Mustang day celebration.

Cars in the Battlefield
On Saturday April 8, MCCPA participated in the Cars in the Battlefield. Several MCCPA members left Cars and Coffee and headed for a meet up with MCCPA own Civil War reenactor Andy Bingaman. We headed to a staging area for cars to go in small groups. Andy took the lead to add some extra sights including reenactors firing their rifles and a photo shoot at a covered bridge.
First Cars and Coffee
On Saturday April 8, Several MCCPA members attended the first Cars and Coffee at Performance Motors of Hanover. This year was brisk, but none of the cars had snow in the grills like last year. The folks at Performance Motors had Hot Coffee and Munchkins waiting in the showroom.
