The 16th Annual Rods & Relics Car Show started out with a beautiful morning on the grass at the Fort Erie Race Track. The cars started rolling in around 7:30 am & didn’t stop for hours.

We had great food by Crystal Beach Candy Co. Jumbo Hot Dogs, Canadian bacon on a bun, Sausage on a bun, French fries by the Fort Erie Fry truck & lots of cold drinks. The Rods & Relics members were selling Tim Horton’s Coffee at a buck a cup, Ramco was selling Tee shirts with our Show Logo.

The club tent was set up for door prizes and there were 160 door prizes donated by businesses throughout the Niagara area. The DJ was a club member & he gave out 50 prizes to the ladies attending the show. We also had a coloring contest for children 12 & under which unfortunately we do not have their names but they were having a great time coloring pictures of Hot Rods & Customs.

The Organizations we help sponsor, Tender Wishes & the Head Injury Assoc. had tents set up to inform the people of there organizations.

Right Coast Reps Ken Holmes Jim Pearsall were in attendance to in form the people about the Right Coast. The Right Coast Pick of the show was a gentleman from Hamilton, we didn’t get his name.

Millers Recycling had their environmentally friendly flatbed truck there along with pamphlets to explain about the proper way to dispose of a vehicle.
