“We are making it an annual event,” said Tim Martin, Minford High School baseball coach. “We did it year before last, but last year the weather was so bad, we couldn't get together on it.”
Bobbie Bell Smith, of the event committee, said a show took place last year for the Minford Junior High School baseball team. Smith said the show will happen, rain or shine.
The event is scheduled for Saturday on the Minford Middle School (former Minford High School) parking lot. Registration will begin at 9 a.m. and continue until 12:30 p.m. The registration fee is $10. Late entries will not be judged.
Judging is to be done by Smith and Dave Pack.
“I have been showing cars at national, state and local shows for 27 years,” Smith said.
Martin said the event is free to the public, and the proceeds will be used for a trip next year.
“In 2005, we had around 40 to 45 vehicles, ranging from old Camaros to old model trucks to motorcycles,” Martin said. “So this year, we have added the motorcycles class.
“We are planning on going to Nashville, Tenn., next spring, so we are raising money to help plan that trip,” he said. “Hopefully, we will make some money off this to do so.”
Smith said the baseball team and the players' parents will be running the show, and that there will be concessions, a 50/50 drawing and door prizes. Trophies will be awarded at 3:30 p.m. Categories include Top 25, Top 3 motorcycles, Best G.E., Best Ford, Best Mopar, Best Truck, Best Street Rod, Best Motorcycle and Best of Show.
Smith said both the Darrell Potts and Danny Pfleger Memorial awards will be given out as well.
