Homecoming Car Cruise attracts 91

By the time it was all said and done, 91 vehicles were on display during the 2015 Homecoming Car Cruise at Campbellsville  University.

As usual there were vehicles of all years and models plus several motorcycles on display.

Seventy-five of the cruisers went home with custom 1/24 scale 2015 Mustangs to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Mustang. See photos here.

John Blakemore wins Best of Show

during 2015 Fourth of July Show

John Blakemore of Lebanon, Ky. won Best of Show during the Tri-County Car Club's Fourth of July Car Show with his 1940 Ford Pickup. If he and his truck look familiar, that could be because they also took home Best of Show in 2013.

Results and additional photos from this year's show can be found here.

To all who attend the show this year, thank you, and we hope we will see you again next year.

Also a big thank you to all of our sponsors especially Campbellsville  University, the site of our show for the last several years and our largest sponsor.

The Tri-County Car Club was formed on June 8, 1986 to encourage the preservation, collection and exhibition of classic and custom cars and trucks.


The club originally consisted of members from Taylor, Marion and Adair counties in Kentucky. It now has members from many counties.

Members meet on the first Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. at Bible Baptist Tabernacle, 105 50 Bambi Drive in Campbellsville.

Each year the club sponsors a monthly cruise during the summer and a car show on the Fourth of July.

It also assists Campbellsville University with a Homecoming Car Cruise.

Look for details about all of those on this website.
