Creeper’s Car Club to host annual charity car show on June 8

Hundreds of examples of rolling art will soon be displayed at one of the most popular car shows in metro Atlanta.

The Creepers’s Fun Run #29 will take place on June 8 at Marietta’s Jim R. Miller Park.

The show begins at 8 a.m. and costs $5 for admission, with free entry for children under 12. It ends at 3 p.m.

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.

“It’s really important that we help these groups and our community,” said Greg Grier, a member of the club. “And we’re going to have some really great cars this year.”

Grier said the club expects to have several hundred classic car owners bring their vehicles to the show this year. He said the cars will be coming from all over the Southeast.

In addition to the cars, there will be food, music, a swap meet, and door prizes.

One lucky car owner will be selected to win the 2019 AJC Creepers Car Club Cup.

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.
