Beau­ti­ful, sunny au­tumn skies and sea­sonal weather greeted the ap­prox­i­mately 250 en­tries for the 5th An­nual Car Show @ Ca­bela’s on Sun­day, Oct. 23. A col­lec­tion of ghouls and gob­lins spooked at­ten­dees dur­ing the car show. Sal DeCanto had quite a col­lec­tion both in and on his vin­tage 1940 Ford 2 door coupe.

Den­nis and Gerry Dor­shimer won Peo­ples Choice for Best of Show. 1st Place Car was awarded to Peggy Klein­top with 2nd Place go­ing to Rory and Linda Hahn and 3rd Place awarded to Jeff Clay. 1st Place Mo­tor­cy­cle was awarded to Carl Hess.

No one or­dered, nor seemed to overly mind, the per­sis­tent wind

gusts that pep­pered the event through­out the day and the prover­bial good time was had by all. They had a DJ, 50/ 50, Chi­nese Auc­tion, and tro­phies. Of course you could won­der through Ca­belas and get some­thing to eat in­side.

There was a $ 5 do­na­tion that ben­e­fited the Sky­lar Kauff­man Schol­ar­ship Fund. Ac­cord­ing to Sky­lar’s obit­u­ary, Skyler, 9, of Souderton, passed away May 9, 2011. The char­ity show is pro­moted by Rayco Pro­duc­tions out of the Quak­er­town area and is hosted by the Ca­bela’s Ham­burg store.

This event al­ways seems to at­tract ve­hi­cles that don’t par­tic­i­pate in other lo­cal shows and this year was no ex­cep­tion. There was an in­ter­est­ing mix of cars and trucks, some from out of state, scat­tered through­out the des­ig­nated show lot and spilling over into an ad­join­ing lot.
