39th Annual Old Wheels Car Show set for Sunday

COLUMBIA — The Old Wheels Car Club will host its 39th annual show Sunday at Nifong Park.

In the past, the car show was held at various locations including Hickman High and Bass Pro Shop. Last year, the car show moved to Nifong Park, which has 58 acres that include walking trails and a fishing lake.

Car show chairman Michael Koonse said Nifong Park has been the most attractive venue for the show and he hopes it will be used for the club's future shows.

This year, 100 to 120 cars from mid-Missouri are expected to participate. The cars will range from the early 1900s to present day. Registration will take place from 9 a.m. until noon and costs $10 per car.

Admission to the event from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. is free.

There will be four entry categories for cars — survivor class, personalize and custom, special interest and restored stock. Each category is broken into time periods and an award will be given for first and second in each category. Members of the Old Wheels Collector Car Club will judge the cars.

Sponsors include the Columbia Parks and Recreation Department, the Boone County Historical Society and the Old Wheels Collector Car Club.

There will be a raffle for half of the money collected, and tickets cost $1. There will also be music and games.

Food will be provided by MFA Inc. and all proceeds will go to the Wounded Warrior Project.
