Sharing these posts by EJ Kowalski and Kim Garland to help the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing to keep the museum open and continue hosting and supporting awesome events like the Jalopy Showdown and other local vintage racing events. I joined the membership today even though I'm 3+ hours away from the museum. Please sign up here by mail or online https://emmr.org/membership/ "With all events at a stand still due to the Covid-19 pandemic I am posting some photos of past super fun Jalopy Showdowns. The Showdowns were conceived as a fundraiser for the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing, the EMMR, as the money generated went to the preservation of the museum. Being that there are no events happening the museum will not be generating any funds to cover normal expenses. There is a secure way to renew your membership, join up as a new member, or even make a donation with Paypal or credit card. Annual membership is $20. On the newly revamped website click on membership, this will bring you to an easy way to renew and support this great place. I just did it and it works great. The museum is a donation based entity that never asked for exorbitant fees or per event costs. There are many great events through out a normal year that are free to just come hang out. We would not be able to run our ‘roaring roadsters’ without the support of the EMMR and the Williams Grove Old Timers letting us run on the Latimore Valley fairgrounds and at the major world renowned dirt tracks in the area. Support from the hotrod and racing community is how it survives. Everyone knows these are tough times but public access museums are getting hit very hard, there is a prominent museum in the western US that has decided to close its doors permanently due to the uncertainty of the future and keeping up with costs. Please help out if you can. Ok, getting down off my soapbox. Enjoy some fun pics from the great events we all want to attend. We will have one hell of a party when all this settles down!! Stay safe everyone and hope to see you all very soon!! Thanks Larry and the crew for the great times!!!" EJ Kowalski "If everyone that had planned on coming this year to the show, would pay for membership( $20 a year ) can be payed for through the website with PayPal or credit card the museum may get some money to help with expenses! You normally pay a $10 entrance fee and then buy from our vendors and of course a t shirt or two! We would appreciate it!!" Kim Garland Here are 3 of my favorite shots I've taken at various Showdowns.
