  • Three event highlights
    1. This free event will allow the public an opportunity to see restored and modified cars from classic, nostalgic eras. For those wishing to register and show a car of their own, this is a great chance to meet and greet with other collectors, restorers and classic car enthusiasts.
    2. There will  be a trivia contest and a 50/50 pot drawing in which contestants who enter stand a chance of winning half of the total if their name is drawn. The other half will be donated to a McPherson charity. There also will be classic rock of the ’50’s and ’60’s.
    3. The United Way will have a concession stand offering hamburgers, bratwursts and pulled pork sandwiches with all proceeds going to the United Way. The concession stand will be operated by student volunteers from the McPherson County Educational Department.  
    Why you should attend
    “It’s a great experience. Over the years, these guys have put a lot of money into customizing these cars. We’d like to have young people come out, because we know a lot of them are restoring and building their own cars. We treat people the way we want to be treated, so come out and have a good time.”
    — Event organizer Larry Helms
