The Wilkes County Cruisers, Inc. is a 501c3 pending, non-profit, charitable, local car club that has been cruising for several years.  We are a 200+ member club of all ages. We have a variety of cars and trucks including, antique, street rods, classics, pro street, Muscle Cars, Rat Rods, military, motorcycles and more. You do not have to have a car to join. We are a club that continues to grow, not only in the amount members but also in the amount of love for cars/trucks, charities and fun. We are a group of people who gives, gives and gives some more...

All proceeds raised by the club through cruise-ins, food sales, special events,etc, all goes back into the community.  We have several charities that are near and dear to our hearts, so we love to give back.  If you're looking for a car club to join, we welcome you, and please know that you're not only joining a club but joining a large family that has nothing but love and respect for all members...

Plus we have lots of fun!!
