FROM BLUFFTON ICON - 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.

A registration form for vehicle owners interested in entering a vehicle is attached at the bottom of this story.
