Event history~Mike Bowes was the B in AB Ford and a leading force within the local car hobby. Since 1999 the Perth and area car club has organized an annual memorial cruise-in in his memory. Originally organized by the former Tay Touring Club, it is now organized by the Perth Civitan Classic Cruisers.

The Tay Touring Club was the representative for the Perth and area classic vehicle hobbyists for over 30 years and was involved in many of Perth’s local festivals and community events. However it became increasingly difficult for small local clubs, of all kinds, to survive independently and unfortunately the Tay Touring Club was not a survivor. Fortunately a connection was made between the Perth Civitan and Tay Touring Club when the Civitan agreed to host the final Mike Bowes Memorial Cruise-In in 2011. That first cooperative liaison was very successful and resulted in the birth of the Perth Civitan Classic Cruisers.
Since 2011 the Civitan Classic Cruisers has hosted a regular Monday night cruise-in at the Perth Civitan Club on Highway 43 and every year has hosted the Mike Bowes Memorial Cruise-In.
