From the serious classic car aficionado to the casual observer who just wants to see some really interesting cars, there will be something for everyone at the second Classic Car Show in Downtown Thomson.
The show will be held May 7 at the Thomson Depot.
The show, from 3-7 p.m., is presented by the Chamber of Commerce and the CSRA Road Angels, a family-oriented club based in Augusta with a mission of promoting the interests of car enthusiast.
This year's show is being held in memory of Cecil Hogan, who helped make last year's event in Thomson such a success with more than 80 car entries and a host of visitors. Mr. Hogan died in September from cancer.
The car and motorcycle show will operate on a "cruise in" basis for those showing their autos.
There will be a $5 registration fee, which will go toward a cash drawing. Half the money from the drawing will go to the Relay for Life to benefit the American Cancer Society, and one lucky winner will take home the other half, said Carolyn Gilbert, executive director of the Thomson-McDuffie County Chamber of Commerce.
"This will be a fun event. We want everyone to come see these classic cars and motorcycles and enjoy the day," she said.
A disc jockey will play music from the 50s and 60s, and food and drinks will be available.
The event is sponsored by Anthony Auto Sales, Culpepper Ford, Jimmy and Dena's Body Shop and Thomson-McDuffie Tourism.
