Weather’s fine at Show and Shine
More than 75 classic car owners turned out Saturday for a Show and Shine at Les Schwab on North Carson Street.
Thanks to a bright sunny sky, the cars were able to do what they do best – shine, and drew lots of horn honks from motorists passing by on busy Highway 395.
Randy James, who was helping sell raffle tickets during the event, said he drove nine hours all the way from Salem, Ore., just to help with the event.
His son, Mike Brown, is assistant manager at Les Schwab, and worked closely with Bryan McGill of Capital Classic Productions to pull off the car show.
The fundraiser will benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Nevada and Carson City’s Little League program.
“Everything was donated including more than $300 in trophies and plaques,” James said.
Brown said he expects the show and shine to continue annually.
“This is another way for Les Schwab to get involved with the community and show support for our kids,” he said.
Music, raffles and prizes rounded out the day.
