This gala event sponsored by the 18 active car club members in the Texas Panhandle council, wrapped up on Sunday, as the largest show in its long history. 285 entries, record crowds, many diversified vendors and beautiful weather. This show has generated proceeds to the local Make-A-Wish Foundation in excess of $65,000 per show for years and we hope to increase that this year.
The entries are made up of mostly local Texas, with a few from Oklahoma and New Mexico. This explains the disproportionate share of restored original vehicles to the hot rods. Our old cars are well preserved up here in the dry climate of the panhandle. We had as many cherry stock 30ís iron as we did the built hot rods. Plus all the original Fordís, Chevyís, Hudsonís and Buickís and the extreme monster trucks, 57 Chevy El Camino, Stealth Volks, etc.
Barry Henson, the show chairman, directs the 300 or so volunteers from all the clubs for security, ticket sales, set up, tear down, awards, etc. and has been doing this for many years. The simple fact that all of the clubs come together for this great show and the one they sponsor for Meals on Wheels speaks highly of the Panhandle Council of Car Clubs.
