NEWS FROM THE AUSTIN CAR COM­MU­NITY

Austin American-Statesman - - CARS -

Austin. Gen­eral ad­mis­sion tick­ets are $15 for the show, which in­cludes the cars, live mu­sic and a swap meet on premises. The show runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. April 7 and 8.

“It’s the 16th an­nual (show) and we’ve got a great mu­sic lineup and a lot of cars com­ing back in from all over the coun­try,” or­ga­nizer Steve Wertheimer said. “It’s the same for­mat and plans as last year, though this year we have a cou­ple of new fea­tures we’re bring­ing in, in­clud­ing th­ese vin­tage rac­ing carts that were big in the ‘60s and early ‘70s across the coun­try.”

Wertheimer said he is ex­pect­ing 1,500 to 2,000 cus­toms and hot rods to be on dis­play at the event.

This year there will be a spe­cial raf­fle to ben­e­fit the fam­ily of Cindy “Crash” Raschke. Known in the Austin area for her hand-painted de­signs, Raschke was a fix­ture in the past at the Round Up and other area car events and was un­ex­pect­edly lost this year. Raf­fle tick­ets are $25 and pro­ceeds will go to her hus­band to help pay for me­mo­rial ex­penses. The win­ner will re­ceive a 1966 cus­tom Bar­racuda hand­painted by Raschke.
