Historical Society Annual Car Show

CarShow2013There are only a few things you need to have a successful car show - people, cars, sun and music. All four were out in full effect on the last day of June for the Mason County Historical Societies 13th annual car show. With help from ‘Friends of the Museum’, an offshoot of a local car club, 325 registered cars (and more that weren’t) of every make and model shined under the sun on one of the hottest days of the year.

Thousands of people came out and walked up and down Railroad Avenue. The cars blocked off more than five blocks of the downtown core. KMAS Newsradio joined the fun playing classic music from the “American Graffiti” generation, which coincided with the majority of cars at the show. 50’s and 60’s classics weren’t the only cars on display - fully customized, brand new Dodge Challengers were alongside Fords from the 1930’s.

An addition to this year’s show was “Tow Mater,” a full-sized reproduction of the car of the same name from the Cars movies from Pixar, voiced by Larry,The Cable Guy. The family responsible for creating Tow Mater was able to get permission from Pixar to recreate the iconic character and now travel around showing it off. Families were able to take pictures with the car for a donation to the museum. The museum, located on 5th and Railroad, is the benefactor of the funds raised during the event and Justin Cowling, the museum’s Director, told Daybreak with Jeff & Dale on KMAS the money goes to the ongoing record-keeping of historical items, like pictures and news clippings for the entire county. Awards were given out, including top honors for cars based on presidential eras, daily drivers, and emergency vehicles. Local officials also handed out awards; there was a mayoral award, a sheriff’s award and more. Even if someone didn’t win an award, the time spent talking about good days gone by, was prize enough for many of the cars owners, some who travelled long distances for the love of the show.
