In 2004, Jalopyrama started as a fundraiser for the Providence Center, raising money for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Jalopyrama was a traditional style hot rod and custom car show modeled after shows held inside armories in the 1950s and ‘60s. It was the brainchild of Mike Szuba and hosted by the East Coast Hot Rod Preservation Alliance and the Rusty Nuts Hot Rod Group. The Rusty Nuts were the group of car guys who volunteer their time and skills to help assemble this show.

Automotive fans had a chance to marvel at more than 300 hot rods, classics and custom cars. The show featured pre-1963 era invitation-only cars inside the Talbot Community Center, with additional cars set up outside. Along with the cars, there were events and vendors inside and outside the center.


We were proud to support our beneficiaries The Talbot Hospice, The ARC of Central Chesapeake Region, the Easton Elks & the Beauty for Ashes -Women & Children.
