The Roundup -

Car Shows Held Wednesdays


Participants browse and talk during a Wednesday night car show.

Thanks to the inspiration of a few local residents, Wednesday night has now been designated as Car Night at the Shops at Fox Run parking lot.

"It's something that I wanted to try," Gene Trudell, one of the organizers of the car shows, said. "There are so many great cars around. We thought we should have a no-strings attached event where we could talk cars."

Trudell said no prizes or awards are given. Instead, the prize is sharing fun time together.

"It's just to neighbor up for two or three hours," Trudell said. "Cars are just a magnet for people. It's just fun. It's to get your mind off your bills for one evening a week."

Car shows run from 6-9 p.m. on Wednesdays.

The car shows are held each Wednesday from 6-9 p.m. in the parking lot. The plan is to keep the shows going through September.

"Reynolds has been great," Trudell said. "They are all about things that the community can get involved in."

Trudell added, "We make sure to clean up, so there's no trash after it."

The shows started with about 10-15 participants and have increased to about 60 individuals. Ages range from about 16 years old to about 85 years old.

"There's men, women, children. It's just for anybody interested in cars," Trudell said.

He noted the event features a lot of different "special" vehicles.

"Everybody who puts their sweat and tears into it, feels that their car is pretty remarkable," Trudell said.
