With an overcast sky and low humidity, 70 cars came to the Arnold Historical Society show on Saturday, Aug. 8, held at the Arnold VFW Post 2593. The cars were all socially-distances with a space between them and the drivers all wearing masks.
Cars of all ages and models included a 1926 Ford Model T, a ’64 Chevy Corvette, and ’66 Dodge Charger, ’67 Ford Mustang, a 1980 Datsun, a 2015 Mercedes Benz and all makes and models in between. We even a silver ’81 Delorian DMC12.
We had a state rep visit the show: Dan Shaul, as well as two councilmen: E. J. Fleischman and Tim Seidenstricker.
The Car Club trophy went to the Coachmens’ Club.
Participants’ Choice was won by Don Berry with his ’64 Ford Galaxy.
Best of Show went to Chuck O’ Dell with his 1965 Chevy Chevelle.
The weather was awesome, the group had a fantastic time, and we got everyone out before the rains came.
Stay tuned in 2021 for news of next summer’s event!
Check out all the fun photos!
