Highland Park will be the setting for the 12th Annual Queen City Rock 'n' Roll Revival on Saturday.
Sponsored by the Queen City Rods &Classics Car Club, the all-day event will feature a display of all types of cars, trucks and motorcycles. Admission is free.
The show is the club's yearly fund-raiser, with all proceeds donated to local charities. Goodin said the club will choose a charity later, adding that the "money goes to help needy children."
People can still enter their car or unfinished car in the show by paying a $20 fee for each vehicle. Registration will begin at 7 a.m. Saturday and trophies will be awarded at 3 p.m.; judging will take place throughout the day.
Among the cars at the show will be 1955-1957 Chevrolets and 1932 Fords vehicles that Goodin said were popular when he was growing up.
An inspector from the National Street Rod Association will be on site to give drivers NSRA certification. There will also be a place where drivers bring spare vehicle parts to sell or swap.
The Queen City Rods &Classics Car Club meets the first Tuesday night each month. For information on how to join, call Gerald Goodin at 683-3430, Ed Barnhardt at 483-8226 or Joe Pat Lannon at 626-8793.
