The third an­nual Car Show for a Cause was held Satur­day at River Ranch in Noel by City Lim­its Car Club.

Trevyn Faulkner of City Lim­its Car Club said pro­ceeds of the show go to the An­gel Tree Foun­da­tion.

“Every­body loves a good car show, so we might as well do it for a good cause,” he said.

Brian Hole of An­der­son brought a 1974 Chevro­let Ca­maro he has had for 34 years. It was his first car and he drove it through high school.

“I fin­ished the restora­tion on it in 2011. The engine has been mod­i­fied and beefed up pretty good. It’s got a five-speed trans­mis­sion. I did the paint job on it. I own a body shop in An­der­son, Brian’s Cus­tom Paint­ing. Ash­ley Auto Up­hol­stery did the seats and in­te­rior. I just like driv­ing it. It’s a fun car to drive. I like to show it off.”

He said he goes to a lot of car shows. He noted that the car was fea­tured on Clas­sic In­dus­tries’ web­site. They saw the car on Face­book and did a story about it.

Hole said of the car show, “So far it’s do­ing pretty good. It looks like there’s some pretty nice cars here.”

Ricky Con­duff of Di­a­mond brought a 1927 Ford T Bucket to the show.

“It’s a metal bucket in­stead of fiber­glass,” he said. “It’s orig­i­nal T bucket. It has a de­tach­able steer­ing wheel. It has hoosiers spi­der header pipes. It has a 750 Edel­brock car­bu­re­tor. It has all disc brakes and red vel­vet in­te­rior. It sits in the garage a lot. It goes to pa­rades, car shows, fes­ti­vals. It’s fun to drive. It’s like a dune buggy to me. It’s a solid car. It’s all orig­i­nal. It also has doors. Most don’t.”

He said of the car show, “Not bad. It’s the first one down here in Noel I’ve been to. There’s some nice cars. I like be­ing in the hot rod en­vi­ron­ment.”

Josh Gann of An­der­son brought a 2010 Mus­tang GT. He said it is a 4.6 V8 daily driver.

“I’ve done all the cus­tom. I did the cus­tom in­te­rior, the stripes. I trav­eled as far as Kansas City to go to car shows with it. I’m in the Four State Stangz Car Club out of Carthage, Mo.,” he said.

The car was bought new in Jack­sonville, Ark.: Gann is the sec­ond owner. He bought it in Jo­plin in 2015. He has also won some awards.

“I’ve won at the Eureka Springs Mus­tang Show. I’ve won twice at the Mus­tang Mother Road Rally, and I’ve won in Carl Junc­tion. I’ve won over in Ok­la­homa,” he said.

He noted the ve­hi­cle has “cus­tom wheels, cus­tom head­lights. I’ve prob­a­bly put over $3,000 in it.”

Ray Pitts of Pineville brought three cars. The first is a 1967 Chevro­let pickup truck that be­longed to Rick Hen­drick of NAS­CAR.

“It’s all cus­tom out­side of the body. The body is orig­i­nal. The paint job is ‘05 Nis­san Tun­dra Blue. The bed floor is cus­tom wood wal­nut with burl. The mo­tor is a 388 small block Chevro­let. It has a T56 five-speed trans­mis­sion,” he said.

The sec­ond was a 1983 K30 ex­tended-cab, four-wheel drive.

“It has a 454 mo­tor with a 4L60E trans­mis­sion. It has a cus­tom red and black in­te­rior.”

The third is a 1972 Blazer two-wheel drive, which is ex­tremely rare, he said.

“It’s ba­si­cally stock, aside from a crazy paint job some­one put on it. It has a 350 small block Chevro­let mo­tor.”

He said of the car show, “I think it’s awe­some. I wish there were more peo­ple here. The lo­ca­tion is gor­geous.”
