Tour de Terrace car show was better than ever


By Nick Fiorillo

The Tour de Terrace Car, Truck and Motorcycle show was a huge hit this year. People of all ages swarmed in to get to take in the aisles of automobiles. Car owners came together to show off their pride and joy, and to share their memories from the times that their classic cars reigned king.

The car show filled practically all of Evergreen Playfields 4 and 5, located behind the MLT pavilion. There was no charge to get in. Ballots were handed out and viewers were able to choose their favorite car for each category: Best Work In Progress, Best Bike, Best Import, Best Hot Rod, Best Rat Rod, Most Unusual Entry, Best Survivor, Best Truck, Best Paint, Best Ford, Best General Motors, best Chrysler, Best In Show, and Mystery Judge’s Pick.

The results were revealed at the end of the show.
