Motor Menders

Rod & Custom Car Club


About Us

Motormenders Maine is a club for hot rod, custom car owners & enthusiasts in the midcoast area.  We are a small group of like minded folks who just love our (& others!) cars & like to go to car shows, cruise ins, races, & anything car related.  Our membership is small in number but LARGE in personality...mostly couples but we are still growing!  Our vehicles are from all ends of the spectrum - as we like to say from "mild to wild!"  The one thing that we all have in common is that we love our cars & love seeing other peoples cars.  We freely share our knowledge & work toward keeping vintage car enthusiasm alive. 

We have a monthly meeting at our clubhouse which is at our homebase, the "Topsham Fairgrounds!" 

We plan events year round but our biggest & most popular event is our annual spring swap meet which is always on the first Sunday in May & held at the Topsham Fairgrounds!  Vendors with car parts, bike parts, car & truck memorabilia, & many other car related items join to make this a great buy & sell event!  Vendor spaces are only 25.00 & are first come first serve...unlike other swaps we have an unlimited amount of space so we don't limit you to a 10X10 foot plot.  Vendors have the amount of space that they need!  We also feature a car corral to sell your rod or one swap we had a guy sell a car that had not even intended to sell...the buyer was there ...the price was right ...he sold & walked home!  Car Corral spaces are only 10.00 & provide maximum visibility for selling.  You are also able to sell a car on the main fare with other vendors for the same 25.00 fee if you prefer. 

We have food vendors with breakfast & lunch items available & reasonable!  Gate admission for spectators is only 5.00 & kids under 15 are free with an adult! 

As soon as weather permits we are out with our rides. 

We have member representation every week at the cruise in at TopshamFair Mall on Mondays, Roys in Auburn & Meetinghouse Market in Dresden  on Tuesdays, the Big Dipper in Lisbon on Wednesdays, & Ainslee's in Gardiner on Thursdays.  We meet on the first Friday night of the month to discuss club business & welcome potential new members.  If you are interested in joining us please fill out our application on the contact us page on this site, submit it here & a "sponsor member" with contact you to meet you.

Our weekends are filled with fun filled cruises to somewhere or no where!  We love the monthly "Cruise in on the Cathance" sponsored by the Bowdoinham General Store.  There's nothin' like kickin' back in your chair on the green grass next to the Cathance, listening to the bands or deejay & hangin' with the "Menders" & watching the fireworks!  

Follow us on our cruises to nowhere,  join us at one of the states drive ins, see us at the speedway or Winterport, or just come & see our rides...if there's a car event just look for our Motor Menders swing plates!   

We might not all be shiney & new but we all do work on our own cars...even the girls get greasy!  C'mon along!  

We LOVE having fun & laughing!
