Have you got a great ‘tin lizzie' lovingly restored? A '57 Chevy that draws admiring stares? A '49 Ford truck that's the envy of the neighborhood guys?

Then consider bringing your vintage vehicle to show off at the Sweet Gum Bottom Blues Fest's 2nd Annual Antique, Classic, Collector Car, Truck and Street Rod Show Saturday, Oct. 28. The car show is slated for noon ‘til 3 p.m.

There is no entry fee charged and you don't have to sign up in advance to participate, co-organizer Betty McGough of McGough Auto Parts in Honoraville said.

&#8220We want plenty of folks to just come on out, bring their pre-1970 vehicles and let everyone enjoy looking over these classic and vintage cars and trucks during the show.”

Four prizes, consisting of $25 gift certificates, will be given out at 3 p.m., McGough said.

&#8220For folks who have a vehicle they are in the process of restoring, we offer the ‘Work in Progress' Award. We also have ‘Ladies' Choice' Award and ‘Longest Distance' Award, for the person who came the greatest distance to our show,” McGough said.

&#8220There's also the ‘Luck of the Draw'

Award, where a child will simply draw a number out of a hat to choose one of the winners.”

McGough reminds everyone the show is all in a spirit of fun and friendly competition, and the more, the merrier.

&#8220We've got people coming from places like Florala and Montgomery as well as Greenville, Honoraville, and Georgiana.”

For just $5, car show attendees can also enjoy all the great live blues music kicking off at 2 p.m. in downtown Greenville.

Arts and crafts, kids' activities, barbecue competition and food vendors will also be part of the fun-filled day.
