More than 75 classic vehicles were on display at the second annual Stephens' Pipe & Steel car show over the weekend, helping to raise over $800 for the Russell County Hospital Auxiliary, according to event organizers.
The show was held at the former Houchens grocery on Lakeway Drive in Russell Springs and featured cars, trucks, motorcycles and tractors.
The facility now serves as Terry Stephens' car museum.
Calvin Davis won for best of show while Billy Lawson won the best of show truck. The Olboystoys Car Club took home the club participation award.
The hot temperatures and high heat index indices didn't keep folks away either as a steady stream of people flowed in and out of the show all afternoon as they visited the auxiliary's vending booth and listened to the classic tunes of DJ Ron Cowell while viewing the vehicles.
All proceeds from the show were given to the Russell County Hospital Auxiliary to help fund services volunteer group provides to the hospital and its visitors.
The group provides many important services that enhance the care provided to patients, their family members, and visitors, according to the hospital.
They help run the hospital's gift shop in the front lobby as well as the reception desk, among other tasks.
The auxiliary has served Russell County Hospital since 1981.
It has around 50 members and is always welcome to new members as well.
