The Show & Shine has rolled out with huge success

Saturday morning, cars of various years, makes, and models convened in Downtown Minden for the 12th The Vintage Car Club Show & Shine. This event was put on by the Vintage Car Club of Minden and sponsored by the Louisiana Paving Company.

The event served up a variety of entertainment throughout the day. Of course, event-goers were free to gaze upon the dozens of vintage cars that were out for display. Parking for the vintage cars was near max capacity, given that the event had a total of 185 entries. 

This year featured an event called the Kiddie Parade, where children in decorated bikes, four-wheelers, battery operated cars and all the like paraded down the street in front of the Minden Civic Center.  “There was an awesome turnout and the kiddie car show just took it over the top, in spite of the extreme temperatures. It was an awesome day,” said Larry Gipson, host of the event. 

If cars weren’t quite their speed there were plenty of other events to entertain the children in attendance, including a scavenger hunt, hula hoop contest, and a dance-off.

The competition had numerous categories and a lot of people and their vehicles were recognized. So many in fact that they can not all be listed here. For a full list of the winners of all categories of the Car Show & Shine, you can visit www.mindenpress-herald.com.

In the Antique Class (1900-1925) 1st was awarded by Karey Bryce, and 2nd was awarded to Tim Richardson. In the Antique Class (1926-1958) 1st place was taken by Mike Griffin, 2nd place was taken by Jimmy Wright, and 3rd place went to Donna Miller. In the Antique Class Modified (1900-1925)  there was but one winner, that being Ron Shaffer who took 1st. In the Antique Class Modified (1926-1959), 1st was given to Don Russell, 2nd went to Lamar Booth, and 3rd went to Darrell McLeanne.

The winner of Best of Show was James Bryant with their 1947 Dodge Truck. The People’s Choice this year was Donna Miller and their 1956 Ford Thunderbird. The competitor who traveled the farthest was one Stanley Lamell from Wisconsin.

“The Vintage Car Club would like to thank Mayor Terry Gardner and the city of Minden as well as all of our sponsors for their support,” said Gipson.

Proceeds will go to benefit the Minden St. Jude Auction, The American Cancer Society, The Anna Pink Ribbon Foundation and The American Sickle Cell Association.
