The Cruise In that was held during the 2015 festival drew over 55 Classic Hot Rods and Vintage Automobiles from every era.  Farthest driven was Kenny Smith's pristine 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS from Akron, Ohio.  Crowd favorite was Bill Bibb's 1953 Rolls Royce Silver Dawn from Oak Hill, West Virginia.  2016 was our 1st Car Show which was a success. The Best of Show was Chris Kappler's 1937 Packard from Oak Hill and the Best Classic was Oak Hill's Bill Bibb with his 1929 Lincoln Continental.  We are listed on the National Street Rod Associations Calendar of Events for West Virginia. As there are only 125 spaces available for 2018 Summersville Lake Lighthouse Festival & Car Show, those of you planning to show your ride should not delay in contacting our office to register for this year and "Save the Date!  August 25th".  Summersville Lake Retreat Representatives will be picking the "Best of Show" and a Celebrity from WSAZ TV 3 will be picking the winner of the "Best Classic", Cabela's will be picking the "Best Truck" and United Bank has sponsored the "People's Choice" Trophy.  We will also be having a "Kid's Choice" Trophy sponsored by Summit Racing Equipment for the first 50 kids to pick their favorite vehicle.
