Congress of Country Music Adds Two Classic Cars to Collection

The Congress of Country Music has recently added a couple of classic cars to its fleet, courtesy of avid Congress supporters Dave and Boots Wright of Ocala, FL.

In May 2020, the Congress debuted a jet black 1961 Cushman Truckster branded with the Congress of Country Music Logo.

In addition to the Truckster, the Congress acquired a fully restored, highly customized blue-sparkle paisley 1965 Ford Econoline pickup with mag wheels. Its paint scheme was taken from a 1968 Fender Telecaster guitar owned by Stuart. Marty and Connie Smith rode in the Econoline as they served as grand marshals in Philadelphia, Mississippi's annual Christmas parade on December 7.
