According to one of the event organizers Scott Flickinger, there were 132 cars and 30 craft vendors at the show this year. There were 109 vehicles and 24 crafters last year, so the show keeps getting bigger.

The Crystal Military Museum was on-hand with a display of military vehicles and gears from the World War I era to the present day. Everett Jasmer drove his USA-1 monster truck over two cars to crush them in front of the audience.

The Family of Life Lutheran Church along with the Christ’s Cross Car Club and Hooked on Christ have been hosting this car show to support the men and women of the military and single parents. All proceeds go to these charitable causes.

Hooked on Christ was in charge of the concession stand as well. Lunch proceeds will be donated to the Birch Lake Bible Camp.
