i 60- CAPE t ]kiayt May 28,'Mli, y'29,',l7' ' Memorial Day Weekend Classic Car Show set for Long Neck The Long Neck Business Asso- ciation will get the summer season off with a rolling start on Sunday, May 25, with a Memorial Day Weekend Classic Car Show on Long Neck Road. Artist Continued from page 63 rounding communities. Dera's other creations include a floor and ceiling mural inside Re- hoboth Seafood on Route 1, a wall inside the new Great American Diner on Wilmington Avenue, and a mural currently in the works at the Atlantic Sands Hotel. His work at the Atlantic Sands, similar to the Woody's mural, is an ocean scene with a dolphin, palm trees and a lighthouse. The main dif- ference between the two, howev- er, is the loftiness of the Atlantic Sands mural. Working at an ele- vation of about four stories can be intimidating for anyone, but Dera said he's overcome his fear of heights. "I wasn't comfortable that first day," he said. "But then I son of got used to it." Dera said the amount of paint required to complete one of his murals isn't a lot, since air brush- ing guns don't require a lot of paint. Although the amount varies from project-to-project, Dera said he used about two-and-a-half to three gallons of paint for the Woody's mural. And although most of his works do depict beachy, ocean scenes, The car show is organized by veteran hosts AI and Cheryl Gargano of Oak Orchard, and will feature 200 of the very finest cars, trucks and motorcycles from a three-state area. Dera is not limited. He said he spends time re- searching possible subjects, and has a stack of carefully-labeled National Geographics at home. "I have them labeled with all my little tags," he said. "Like, 'Here's a killer whale, here's a gi- raffe." Dera said he does his mu- rals on an appraisal basis. For more information, call 537-_578_2, The show will include vehicles hich have been painstakingly re- ;tored, skillfully customized and tetailed, and those that are ab- ;olutely original, garage-kept cars :hat are still clocking miles for heir owners. Long Neck residents Bill and Barbara Hudson will enter their 66 Corvette, and this nationally anked vehicle has been chosen as :he classic car for the Memorial Bay show.
