Wind Creek Hosts Vintage Car Show September 13
September 04, 2008
Wind Creek State Park, located near Alexander City, will host the Fourth Annual Lake Martin Car Show on Saturday, Sept. 13, 2008. A variety of vintage cars and trucks ranging from antiques to street rods will be on display.
The car show will be held from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. with registration beginning at 8 a.m. Pre-registration is $10 and will be $15 the day of the event. Registration forms can be picked up at Wind Creek or downloaded from www.alapark.com. Admission to the park is $3.
According to State Parks Promotions Director Randy Jinks, Wind Creek State Park provides a wonderful setting for the car show. “It’s really something special when you see all the antique vehicles parked under tall pine trees surrounded by beautiful Lake Martin,” he said.
Door prizes will be given away along with drawings for $1,200 in prize money. This year the car show will honor Ms. Ella Gray, a popular citizen of the Alexander City area and owner of Mama Ella’s Diner. The dash plates given to the first 100 entries and the T-shirts that sold at the event will honor Ms. Ella with a design showing Ford, Chevy and Chrysler cars in front of a diner called “Ella’s Diner.” Ms. Ella will be on hand to select her favorite car, and the owner will be presented with an awards plaque entitled “Mama Ella’s Choice.”
In addition, the “Mayor’s Choice Award” will once again be presented by Alexander City Mayor Barbara Young to the car of her choice.
