Annual Car Show brings in 114 vehicles

There was a big crowd this year at the 23rd Annual Twisters Car Show held Saturday, June 11, around the Mary Cotton Public Library. This year’s show was huge with 94 paid entry registrations along with about 20 club member cars present.

To open the show, Christian Motorcyclists brought in the flags and Mike Oom gave a brief prayer.

Hot Wheel Races were enjoyed by many spectators and had nearly as many participants as the car show. The trophy winners of the Hot Wheel Races this year were Leighton Strathman, first; Walker Erdley, second; Flint Lowdermilk, third; Levi Hartley, fourth; and Owen Scoby, fifth.

The following registered vehicles were presented trophies based upon the defined categories:
