It was a day to look back and admire the automotive treasures of yesterday as the Clovis Senior Activity Center hosted the annual “The Classic Car Show”.

The event took place on October 9 from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. Different styles of cars were displayed to the public and even placed in different categories based on the votes of those who participated in the voting. Vehicles that entered had the chance to win Mayor’s Favorite, People’s Choice, Stock Category, Modified Category, Entrant’s Choice and Kid’s Choice.

The winner of each category is displayed here:

  • People’s Choice: Heidi Cunha, Modified 1969 Pontiac Firebird
  • Mayor’s Pick: Joe and Pat Mannino, Modified 1955 Chevy Bel Air
  • Participants’ favourite: Terry Moore, Ford Falcon 1965
  • Kid’s favorite: James Melton, 1934 Studebaker Dictator Coupe
  • 1st Place Stock: Pete Rocco, 1952 Ford F-1 1/2 Ton Pickup
  • 2nd Place Stock: Ron Coppola, 1968 Mustang/California Special
  • 1st place modified: Marvin and Jean Flores, 1929 Model A, 2-door sedan
  • Modified 2nd Place: Dave DeLuca, 1969 Chevrolet SS 396 Chevelle

This year marked the 10th year the center hosted the event and was one of the highest turnouts the show has seen to date. Clovis Senior Activity Center employee Moniqua Randolph expressed how happy she was with the participation.

“It was such a huge success and also great to see the kids having fun and being able to participate in the contest,” Randolph said. “They had their own category so they could not only see these vintage cars, but also pick their favourites. Overall it was such a success and with the great feedback we received we will be looking to improve for future shows. »

This year marked the first time the event was held over a weekend and it seemed to pay off. 75 vehicles were registered, more than their average number of registrations in previous years. This event will be held on weekends from now on.
