River Tales Classic Car Show held in downtown Cape Girardeau | Community Spirit
CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - The River City Rodders Car Club in conjunction with Old Town Cape hosted the 35th Annual River Tales Classic Car Show on Sunday.
Over 200 cars and trucks were on display downtown along Main St. and in the parking lot across from Hutson's Fine Furniture.
The cars ranged in age from 80-years-old to some in around 20-years-old.
Dow Croom owns a 1972 Dodge Demon and he enjoys showing it off every year.
"We really enjoy the atmosphere," said Croom. "The people are friendly. There are just a lot of car-buffs out there. We obviously travel on wheels and a lot of people like to see these cars. There are a lot of high-dollar cars up and down through here. And these people spend year, literally years, putting these cars together."
The River Tales Classic Car Show has been held in downtown Cape Girardeau since 2007.
Trophies were awarded in thirty-one classes, with classes available for most vehicles from 1990 through 2002.
In addition to the class trophies, special trophies were awarded for Best Paint, Best Engine, Rodder's Choice and Old Town Cape's Choice.
There was music and attendance prizes given away throughout the day to registered participants.
Judging began at noon with trophies and other awards given out at 3 p.m.
The River Tales Classic Car Show is sponsored by Auto Tire and Parts NAPA.
