CLEARFIELD – Auto shows have a knack for fueling nostalgia for the good old days.
And, on August 21, the 45 of the Central Mountains Region Antique Automobile Club of Americae The annual Antique and Custom Car Show will fuel that same feeling from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Clearfield County Fairgrounds.
Thousands of people walk through our show each year, according to Penny White, AACA Central Mountain Area Secretary/Treasurer. “It takes people back to the good old days.”
The car show includes 23 classes with trophies (top 3 in each class) and other special rewards. Judging follows AACA rules and therefore all cars must have a working fire extinguisher.
Registration is $10 per registration and takes place from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Judging begins at 12:30 p.m. and ends with a presentation of trophies/awards at 3:30 p.m.
The “Car of the Year” is a 1960 Chrysler, owned by David and Laurie Raecher, which will be featured on this year’s dash plaque, as well as under the sportsman’s shelter in the Grove area.
As people wander down memory lane, they can enjoy food offerings and browse the various craft and flea market items, from baked goods and home decor to tumblers, jewelry and more Again.
The club will also be holding a 50/50 raffle and guns raffle that day and David “Lil’ Man” Gardner will set the mood with music from the 50s, 60s and 70s.
“Our show brings people together…and we — as an auto club — give back to our community,” White expresses. “We have a tuner class. It’s a public choice, so come vote for your favorite.
The show’s main sponsor is Dotts Motor Company of Clearfield, which White says has been a long-time supporter of the Central Mountain Region AACA.
