Car Show Supports Veterans

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Car enthusiasts of all ages should have plenty to take in at the 7th annual ‘Dad’s Ole Car Day’ Sunday at 1 p.m. at the VA in North Little Rock located at 2200 Fort Roots Drive.

The car show, organized by Classic American Muscle and Streetcars (CAMS), offers free admission and refreshments to visitors.  Awards will be given for cars in both the People’s Choice and the Participant’s Choice categories.

“It’s always a good time for us, as well as the Veterans,” said Jim Larmoyeux, CAMS president.  “Everyone has a tale: ‘My father had a car like this,’ ‘I had a car like that when I was in high school,’ and on and on.”

Last year’s event included 130 cars and organizers anticipate a larger turnout this year. Among the cars already signed up for the 2010 show are a 1950 Hudson and a World War II era military Jeep with a .50 caliber machine gun.

All cars are welcome at the show meaning anyone who wants to show off their ride can show up on Father’s Day and register for a space.

“Some car shows turn their noses up at newer cars, like the new Camaro or a new Corvette, but at Dad’s Ole Car Day, it’s more about what people want to see and the Veterans may be more interested to see a new car than an antique,” said CAMS spokesperson Tim Irby.
