Sponsored by cable-TV provider Armstrong, the event will be held at 7469 South Ave. from noon to 4 p.m.
Vehicle registration is from 9 a.m. to noon and costs $10 per vehicle. Admission is free to spectators. Anyone who donates a nonperishable food item will be entered into a raffle to win prizes. The event will also include a 50/50 auction, food from Roberto’s Italian Ristorante and music by WBBG-FM DJ Thomas John.
The car show will include awards for contestants, including 26 first-place awards, 26 second-place awards and two “Grand Champion” awards. Goodie bags, dash plaques and door-prize tickets will be given to the first 200 registrants.
The “The Big Bad Dodge,” a 1964 Dodge 330 drag-race car with a limited-production, 426-race Hemi engine and 125 mph speed record, will be featured courtesy of Don Snyder. Rick Gurrera, host of the local television series “Street Scene,” will be joined by guest host Krysta Sylvester to provide a live recording of the event for the series premier on Armstrong Channel 20/100.
