Fall is great for Car Shows and Cruises!

Guthrie Road Show

A gorgeous day for a car show and a wonderful setting under the trees in Mineral Wells Park in Guthrie. More things to do downtown with craft vendors, quilt displays in many of the stores and lots of other stuff to do! The sponsoring club gave away $1,000 in a random drawing of the cars entered. Top 20 Cars were decided by popular vote of the entrants. Bill Preston¹s 1956 Nomad placed in the top 20. Top 10 won jackets. Participants were also treated to free entry to see ³Seabiscuit² at the local drive-in
theater Saturday night.

City of Springs Car Show

The attraction of the prizes offered by the Chamber of Commerce of Sulphur, OK took us to this show on a VERY HOT August Saturday. Downtown streets were lined with 180 very nice cars. The top prize was a very nice open car trailer. They also gave away a trip to Las Vegas and a Bed & Breakfast
weekend in Sulphur. Bill Preston¹s 1956 Nomad won first in the 1950s class. That same night was a massive Coit¹s cruise night here in Oklahoma City!!! Lots of fun, great cars and good friends!

Viejiltos Car Club Show

Viejiltos Car Club hosted their first annual show at Woodson Park on Sunday, September 7. Classic Chevy Club members, Bill Preston and Rudy Escalera had their Chevies there. The club gave out 500 hamburgers, 200 hundred hot dogs, chips and drinks free of charge. There was a donation bottle for those who wanted to donate to the club. Viejiltos Vice President Rudy Escalera and Gloria Escalera
spent their day at the grill. There were about 75 cars from clubs in Texas, Tulsa, Lawton and Oklahoma
City. Promoted to include Low Riders and other non-classic cars, the show was well-attended by much younger spectators than we¹re used to seeing. Great event!
