Cruisin': Car show for good cause

In Nov. 1 Issue
Russell County News

By Ron Cowell, Columnist

On Saturday, October 18th, 2008 The Ol Boys Toys Car Club in conjunction with the Russell County Hospital Health Fair had The Maddox McFarland Car Show at the Russell County Hospital.


The show was held behind the Russell County Hospital along with the health fair. In spite of cool weather, a large crowd was on hand to enjoy the health fair and the car show. It was a great day full of fun for all that attended.


Maddox was born premature and has had many medical problems. This has created high medical bills for family. The Ol Boys Toys came up with the idea to have the show to help the family with their medical bills. All profits from this car show went toward Maddox's medical bills.


According to Sandy Weiand and Themie Shepard of the Ol Boys Toys Car Club the show was a big success and went far past what they had expected. Many people paid more than the $10.00 entry fee.  Several who did not even have a car in the show donated and paid the entry fee.


A young lady, who is well known by all the Car clubs, Jessica Rodgers raised over $250.00 herself. Jessica and her parents attend all of the car shows in the area. Next summer you will see her driving around in her Classic Chevy. Her father is currently working on the car for her and says it will be on the road for the next car show season.


There was a 50/50 raffle also and the winner of that donated their winnings to Maddox. The whole crowd was in the giving spirit.


In spite of the cool weather, 53 classic cars were on display at the show. Entertainment was provided by the Dave Rock Band. The band filled the day with classic rock and roll that pleased the crowd.


The cars were all shined up and glistening in the sunlight looking good. According to Themie, it was a hard job for the judge's to pick the winners. After several hours of looking and inspecting the vehicles here are the winners.


Best of Show went to Dut Wilson.

Best Mopar went to Dut Wilson, second place went to Jessica Rodgers.

Best Ford went to Lee Peirce, second place went to Jerry Smith.

Best GM went to Ernie Rodgers, second place to Ken Fisher

Best Truck went to Dale Smith, second place went to David Brown.

Best Street Rod went to Jim Turner, second place went to Myranda Rodgers.


The Ol Boys Toys Car Club wanted to thank everyone who attended the show and helped to make it all come together. Once again the community pulled together to help one of it's own. A special thanks also goes out to the Ol Boys Toys Car Club and their members for taking the time to work on and pull off such a well worth while show.


If your Car Club is having an event and you would like us to tell everyone about or someone who you would like to see featured in this article send all information to, djron47@yahoo.com . All information on upcoming events needs to be in at least two weeks before the event.


If your Club or church or group is having an event and you would like to display some classic cars at that event let me know at least two weeks before the event. I will put you in contact with one of the clubs that will gladly bring their cars out for display.


Until next time, Keep Cruisin'
