White-wall tires, heavy chrome and muscle cars

52nd Festival of Wheels takes over Main Street on Friday

Bluffton’s Main Street vehicular ghosts reappear on Friday, June 14.

Those shadowy figures grew up on leaded gasoline, have V-8 engines under their hoods and ride on white-wall tires. They arrive in a variety of bright colors and don’t have FM radios.

Some have strange names like: Plymouth, Studebaker, Mercury, Edsel, VW Bug, Woody, Oldsmobile, Desoto and Packard.

Over 200 of them return to Bluffton for the 52nd Bluffton Festival of Wheels cruise-in, sponsored by the Bluffton Lions.
