When Blain Massee first became president of the Mile Zero Cruisers classic car club in 2012, his goal was to make the Cruisers’ annual Show and Shine as big as the Prince George show, with more than 400 cars each year.
Fast forward to today, where Massee, after being president for six years, has been succeeded by James Cox for two. With the club’s Silver Anniversary Show and Shine set for July 12 o 14 and regularly drawing around 400 classic vehicles, it’s safe to say Massee accomplished what he set out to do.
“That was my goal. I wanted to make our show just as big and I’m very proud of the work we’ve done to get it there,” Massee said.
Massee first joined the Cruisers in 2003 when he got his first car. In that time, he’s seen the club grow each and every year, and hopes that continues.
"I hope we keep doing what we’ve been doing. I think we’re doing it right, that’s about all I can say,” he said.
Massee said the show and shine weekend is always a good time, especially the dinner, and that people constantly enjoy themselves.
“We’re all about entertaining and showing people what our town is all about. The camaraderie of it all is special and we want them to have a great time when they come,” said Massee.
