High Octane on Main

June 9, 2019 @ 4:00 am - 8:00 am EDT

Winding up a perfect Highlands Motoring Festival weekend is the annual “High Octane on Main” Car Show at 8:00A.M. on Sunday, June 9, at Wright Square on west Main Street. All vehicles are welcome at this more casual car show. Cars of any age are invited, there is no entry fee or judging, and a modest “For Sale” sign is allowed (no “For Sale” signs are permitted on Saturday’s show field). Refreshments will be available.

This informal gathering is a great way to assemble one more time with fellow car enthusiasts, share a few war stories, make plans to meet again next year, and say goodbye. It’s a uniquely home-grown event, an extension of a weekly gathering of local car lovers known as Butts on the Bench with its own FaceBook page. Every Saturday during the summer months from 9:00 until 11:00 A.M, you’ll find sports and classic cars parked in front of the bench, and car lovers drinking coffee and talking cars.

Over the years these mornings have evolved to include passing motorists who notice the cars and stop to join the gathering. Car clubs often travel to Highlands and more and more often their members make it a point to stop to talk shop and show off their cars. One year a Model A club joined the fun on their weekend in Highlands. All are welcome here, and on the weekend of the Motoring Festival, it’s a great place to be.

Old and new friends will find this the opportunity to exchange contact information, tell one more story, make plans for HMF2020, and bid each other a fond farewell.
