LIMA — Pieces of history will be displayed Sunday during the 10th annual Charity Car Show at Lima Chevrolet Cadillac. This is one of the largest car shows in the area, and this year the organizers are anticipating record breaking numbers of classic cars.
“This year, it’s strictly a car show. It’s our tenth annual and the cars are the stars. We’re not taking any bikes, it’s strictly a car show. We expect 300 weather permitting. That’s what we’re looking for,” said Andy Maravola, co-organizer of the Charity Car Show. “We are hoping for a good day, and the cars come in so we can get a lot of money to our charities.”
The car show is dedicated to longtime car enthusiast Chuck McClurg who died Jan. 11. Veterans are being honored as well.
There are a lot of things going on at the Charity Car Show, other than just looking at classic cars.
“We’ve got vendors, a 50/50 raffle, the Vietnam veterans are coming in for the flag raising and Chief Hadding is bringing the fire truck for the flag raising,” said Maravola. “We have the Lowrider Club coming and we’ve got one of those cars that’s going to do some hopping for us. It’s a lot of fun for everybody.”
There will be awards handed out.
“For Best of Show, it’s $500 cash for first place, $200 cash for second place and $100 cash for third place. We give away 100 awards total,” said Maravola.
There is free parking across the street in the Lima Mall parking lot for spectators to park.
“John (Waller) and I appreciate all of the sponsors and everybody that has helped us in the ten years. We’re wishing for a good show,” said Maravola.
