Troy Kiwanis Club will host its fourth annual Best in Alabama Car Show to help to raise money for the Eliminate Project, a Kiwanis and UNICEF project to rid the world of maternal and neonatal tetanus.
“One person’s entry fee will be enough for 11 tetanus vaccinations,” said Caleb Dawson, Kiwanis member. “That’s pretty impressive.”
The car show will be held on Saturday, June 7, at Ken Cox Ford and is expected to be the biggest yet. Dawson said members hope to have 60 to 70 cars in the show.
“The show features every kind of vehicles from cars, old trucks, motorcycles and 1930s cars.” he said. “However, the most common car seen are the muscle cars.”
The entry fee for each vehicle is $20 and pre-registration forms can be found online at trojankiwanis.com; however, cars can still be entered the day of the show.
“Any car is welcome to enter,” Dawson said. “We will even take a boat if someone wants to show it off.”
The show will be from 9 a.m. to noon, and judging will start at 10:30 a.m.
Three car professionals will judge the entries in different categories that include classic original, classic modified, late model, best import, best engine, longest relationship, diamond in the rough, Kiwanis favorite, best paint, best interior, the grand prize Best in Alabama and several others.
General public admission is free and Dawson encourages the public to attend because it is more than just a car show.
“People will be able to see cars they have never seen before and each of these cars and owners has some kind of back story,” Dawson said. “So, the public not only have a chance to look at all the cars they have a chance to hear some really cool stories.”
Several door prizes also will be given away during the show. For additional information on the car show please visit trojankiwanis.com or call (334) 566-8484.
