38th annual Old Wheels Car Show to take place Sunday

Friday, October 5, 2012 | 3:52 p.m. CDT

COLUMBIA — The 38th annual car show for the Old Wheels Car Club will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday in Nifong Park, Paul Hobbs, former president of the Old Wheels Car Club, said.

Registration will take place from 9 a.m. until noon and will cost $10 per car, according to a flyer for the event.

"This is the first time we've done it at the park, so we're really looking forward to it," Hobbs said.

He said he estimates between 125 and 150 cars will be present at the show.

According to a flyer for the event, there will be four different entry categories for cars: unrestored survivor, personalized custom, special interest and restored stock. Each of the four categories is broken down into time periods, and there will be a first-place and second-place award for each period under each category, Hobbs said.

Members of the public will also vote for their favorite overall car. Awards will be announced at 3 p.m., Hobbs said.

The Walters History Museum and the old Easley Store will also be open during the car show. The Old Wheels Car Club worked with the Boone County Historical Society and Columbia Parks and Recreation to put together the event, Hobbs said.

The event is free and open to the public.

Supervising editor is Alison Matas.
