July 5, 2016

OWNER PAUL INGRAM, left, talks with show-goers about his 1946 Ford Super Deluxe Woodie, which won the Best Oldie but Goodie, and Best Wagon and Deliveries awards.

Sweet Home Sweet Ride Director Kimi Nash announced Monday winners from the 2016 show held on June 25.

“This year our vehicle numbers were great due to amazing weather and sunny skies,” said Sweet Ride Director Kimi Nash. “The generosity toward our charities of focus continued to amaze me. The vehicle participants included cars, trucks, 4x4’s, motorcycles and semi trucks.

“The addition of the burnout pit last year drew an even larger crowd this year and was a huge success with 100 percent of the Burnout Pit proceeds going to the ABC House.

“Like last year, Vendor Alley, was positioned in the middle of the show site, and the food court was a huge hit again.

“I want to thank all the volunteers (40 of them) that pulled this show together. This show had so many moving parts, without them this show would not be as successful as it has been. As the Director, I am humbled and honored to once again say we have had another great show year and I can’t wait for next year. I love this job.”
