A little rain Sunday afternoon wasn’t going to ruin the spirits at the annual Redskins Rides Show, presented by Easterns Automotive Group.
In fact, it only made the sweet whips on display sparkle that much more.
It was a fun afternoon for all involved, as those displaying their automobiles as well as those simply coming by to check the rides out also had the opportunity to meet and get autographs from some of their favorite Redskins players.
David Walker came from Harrisburg, Pa., to show off his aqua metallic blue 2010 SS/RS Camaro, and said he had a blast Sunday afternoon.
“Being at Redskins Park it’s really neat, because I see it on the news all the time,” said Walker, a U.S. Army veteran who was in the Second Airborne for 11 years. “Finally coming out here and actually being on this AstroTurf — I actually took a picture myself — it’s really neat, and a day I won’t forget. No doubt about it.”
The event was also a family affair for Mike Germinario and his son, Timmy.
The Germinarios — who hail from nearby Ashburn Farm, Va. — bought Timmy’s car as a project from Craigslist and have seen the Stone Bridge High School student blossom as a mechanic.
“We’re pretty proud of it,” Mike Germinario said. “It’s not the best-looking thing in the world, but I tell ya, it’s all about the hard work and it kept him off the street and focused on his skills. We’re really proud of him.”
The day wouldn’t be complete without a little football talk, however.
And what better way to hold a Redskins event without having a Dallas Cowboys fan there to ruin it?
That’s the role that Centerville, Pa., resident Walter Gunessever played Sunday. Gunessever said he grew up in a family of Redskins fans, but — for whatever reason — he became a Cowboys fan.
“It’s a blast,” said Gunessever, who brought his 1995 Dodge Viper RT/10 for the folks to see. “I’m the only one that’s a Cowboys fan — the black sheep, you might say. But it’s a great time and makes football that much more fun and competitive.”
