For some a car is a mode of transportation, something to be traded in for a newer model every year. For others it is their hobby, their livelihood and their passion.  

Members of the recently dubbed Silver Diner Cruisers Car Club are the latter. The group, which meets Tuesday evenings in the parking lot of the Silver Diner off Route 1 in Laurel, Md., is a safe haven for vintage car enthusiasts. They peer under their hoods, espouse on the gas crisis of the 1970s and the ensuing emissions standards and, of course, have a little fun.
