Creeper’s Car Club hosts classic car show on Saturday in Marietta

Hundreds of classic cars and hot rods will roll into Marietta on Saturday for the Creepers Fun Run 29.

The annual car show will begin at 8 a.m. and costs $5 for admission, with free entry for children under 12. It ends at 3 p.m. and will be held at Jim R. Miller Park in Marietta.

All of the show’s proceeds will benefit Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, Children’s Miracle Network, and Special Olympics Cobb County.

Last year, the club raised $31,000 for the three charities. There’s also a swap meet and plenty of food and music at the event.

Also, during the show, one lucky car owner will be presented the AJC / Creepers Car Club Cup, one of the top awards at the show.

The Creepers Car Club was started in Smyrna in August 1960 by several men who shared similar interests in hot rods, car shows and drag racing, said Greg Grier, chairman of the show.

The Club has grown to include members from all over the state. Membership requires owning a car from year 1972 or older.

“Creepers” are those flat sliding devices used by mechanics to get underneath a car.
