Cruisin': Tonya Stearns Car Show
In Oct. 23 Issue
Russell County News
By Ron Cowell, Columnist

On Saturday, October 16th a car, truck and tractor show was held to raise money for medical expenses for Tonya Stearns. The show was held at Sonic Drive In in Russell Springs.

A group of about 30 vehicles attended the show and once again I was amazed at the quality of vehicles there from every car to motorcycle.

Once again the weather was perfect and everyone enjoyed it.

A lot of prizes were given away that had been donated by local merchants. The "OLDIES" music filled the air once again and even had people doing the Twist in the parking lot.

At the end of the show trophies were handed out to the top 15 vehicles in the show and a plaque was given to the best car, truck, tractor and motorcycle attending. Then the biggie was given to the best of show.

The winners of the top 15 vehicles were, (in no particular order)

Bill & Regina VanHouser for their 1957 Chevy Bel Air

Tom & Susan Bernardi for their 1969 Mustang Mach I

Stu Mazupa for his 1972 Olds 442

Wayne Lynch for his 1950 Ford Custom

Paul Combest for his 1965 VW  Beatle

Mary Ellis for her 2011 Camaro SS

Calvin Davis for his 1966 Ford Galaxie

Dwayne & Mike Esau for their 1955 Chevy Belair

David Roy for his 1966 MG "B"

Kenneth Rigner for his 1971 Chevelle

Mike & Phyllis Taylor for his 1957 Chevy

Alfred and Barbara Hadly for their 1936 Studebaker

Robin Stevens for his 1969 Camaro

Dave Hill for his 1965 Chevy November

In the Tractors;

Allisa & Olivia Thomas for their 1949 Farmall Cub

Glen Whitis for his 1950 Farmall H tractor

That rounded out the top 15. The best of followed the top 15.

They were;

Randy Short for his 1950 Panhead Harley Davidson Motorcycle

Bill Lawson for his 1955 Chevy Pickup Truck

Ron Cowell for his 1961 Corvair Monza

And the Best of Show went to Corbett Combest for his 1951 Peterbuilt 351.

The show was a success and money was raised for Tonya's medical bills that were mounting up.

A special thank you is sent out also to all the merchants that donated prizes. Houchens Market, Johnson's Service Center, McDonalds of Russell Springs, Hudson's Service, Spray & Shine Car Wash and East 80 Car Wash. If I forgot to mention someone please forgive me but you were appreciated also.

Thanks to Phyllis Taylor and Fill Cowell who worked hard selling the 50/50 tickets. Sandy Shepard who did all the registrations, and Ron Cowell for supplying the music, and Mike Taylor and Dwayne Esau for giving me a hand with the music set up and tear down. And I know the Stearns family thanks Themie Shepard for all his hard work in setting up the show.

If you know someone you would like to see featured in my article or your club has an upcoming event you like to let everyone know about send the information to ---  djron47@yahoo.com --- and we'll get it in here for you. If your group or club is having an event and you would like to have some of the Classic Cars there for display any of the local clubs would be glad to bring their cars out to show, (weather permitting).

All information needs to be in at least two weeks before the event. Until next time, Keep Cruisin'!
