Crazy Cruisers to wind through town


On the next day, Oct. 12 AMVETS will continue the classic car fun with their fourth annual Car, Truck and Bike Show on the corner of N.W. 4th Street and U.S. Highway 281 as part of the Crazy Water Festival.

Registration will be open from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. with a free lunch provided by Mr. Jim’s Pizza for all participants at noon and an awards ceremony at the end of the show at 3 p.m.

There is a $20 entry fee for the car show, which covers a free T-shirt, the free lunch, awards and another dash plaque for all participants.

This year’s show marks the first with a title sponsor – O’Reilly Auto Parts – who will also sponsor the cruise. An independent judging team will name award-winners in 16 categories this year, including decade winners, best in show, special interest, best engine and more.

The car show will also feature Addiction Recovery Ministries’ yellow ‘23 Coupe Roadster, which they will raffle off to raise money for their newly opened women’s center.

For more information on the cruise, car show or how to register, contact Vines at 940-445-0734 or by email at jim.helpingveterans@gmail.com.
