By Newsletter Editors: Gary Price & Sid Vicars
Thoughts and prayers for Sid Vicars, who had a scare and hospital stay. Sid is back home re-cooperating.
Thanks to all the sponsors’ contributions for this year’s shows. Special thanks to Randall Gibson and Rainbow Motors for being primary sponsor, Norman’s Auto Repair for providing a giveaway battery and Fort Henry Mall for hosting the Friday Night Super Cruise.
A large crowd gathered at Fort Henry Mall for the Super Cruise. KARC raised over $1100 on Friday, to be donated to Ronald McDonald House.
Saturday started out rainy, and while it threatened all day, a good number of participants braved the weather and were in attendance.
Thanks to all the club members that helped out on Friday and Saturday. It was a team effort.
There’s nothing better than the smile on kid’s faces when they win a bike.
This fellow drove his big back window 55 Chevy Cameo from Boone, NC in the rain, to be one of the first to show up. He made such an impression, he won President’s choice, despite not driving a Mopar.

Member Machines and Gossip
Bruce Roberts gave several club members a crash course on how to spin balance a wheel. Maynard Ketron and Charlie Ball were gracious enough to let Bruce use their cars to demonstrate.
Several members attended the Celebration car show, the weather, food and hospitality were excellent. It’s been Hurd there would have been room for a lot more cars if someone hadn't power parked right smack dab in the middle of the lot.
