A pin up contest will be part of this year’s Cruise-In again.

CRUISE-IN: Roadmen bring rockability element to Langley car show

A hot rod car club is returning to this year’s Cruise-In.

For the Roadmen, it’s all about classic hot rods, rockabilly music, classic pin ups – and charity.

The Roadmen Car Club’s Vancouver chapter is coming back to the 2015 Langley Good Times Cruise-In.

The Roadmen are a club focused on classic hot rods, with a strict 1964-or-earlier rule for their vehicles, said Vancouver club president James Arsenault.

“We like to basically build our cars in-house,” James said. Their hot rods avoid off-the-shelf parts and modern accessories like aluminum rims.

“The guys like to stick with the rockabilly theme,” said James’ wife Elaine.

The local club members and visitors from other chapters out of town will be at the Roadmen Round Up at this year’s Cruise-In, next to the Cascades Casino.

They have 40 spots to fill with their hot rods, said James.

The club will also be bringing a lot of entertainment, including the band Willy and the Wannabees, and a return of last year’s Pin-Up contest.

The Rock’n Dolls PinUp Pageant, organized by Dixie Delight, will have 16 young women competing in the beauty pageant based on classic 1940s-style pin-ups. The pageant will take place between 1 and 2 p.m. on the day of the Cruise-In.

The club members are pleased to be providing the entertainment at their own expense for the all-volunteer Cruise-In.

“We like to give back to our communities,” said James.

It’s the latest charitable event the Roadmen have taken part in, following a Roadmen Rukkus on the last weekend of August that managed to raise $1,800 for breast cancer research, despite the stormy weather.
