Like the local ‘Sun Fun Stay Play’ signs from the 1960s, Bakersfield will likely enjoy a good day outside for the 2022 American Car, Truck, and Bike Show on May 7.

Sponsored by the Mopars of Bakersfield motoring club, the event promises to be a day of “fun, food and friendship,” showcasing the hottest vehicles in Central California.

In addition to the beautiful vintage and late model cars and motorcycles, the show includes children’s activities, a 50-50 draw, raffles for “great prizes” and trophies awarded to participants in various categories.

The show will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. May 7 at the Bakersfield RV Resort, 5025 Wible Road.

There is no charge for access.

Those wishing to enter their vehicle (any make, model, or year) at the show may contact Val Miller at 661-301-4395 or connect at the Mopars of Bakersfield Facebook Page

All proceeds from this show, as well as others owned by the organization, will benefit the Ronald McDonald House in Bakersfield, which provides temporary housing and emotional support to the families of children facing lengthy hospitalizations.

Mopars of Bakersfield is the largest private donor to a Ronald McDonald House in the country, having donated nearly $220,000 over the past nine years. Funds have gone in to build additional structures and provide equipment and play equipment.

Scarlett Sabin, director of the local facility, has arranged for individual rooms and areas to be named for the car club.
