One of the events in the Sandhill Crane Festival on Sept. 15 in downtown Wheatfield, will be the car show, allowing car fans and automotive enthusiasts from far and wide to show their cars and demonstrate all things automotive.  Cars, trucks, motorcycles and even tractors will all be judged, and even those who don’t receive a trophy will contribute to the fun of the day.

“It’s a nasty bad habit,” says Tedd Fifer, event judge and non-competing entrant with a 2012 Corvette.  “I’ve been associated with cars all my life, and I think it’s an interesting hobby.  It keeps you busy.  Money-wise, it all depends on how deep you want to get into it.  It’s a good, all-around hobby for lots of people.  I know guys in their eighties who are still showing.”

The show is a regular event that, along with the Sandhill Crane Festival, has been growing with every year. “Our judging isn’t judged like the Bloomington Gold where they’re expecting you to take a Q-tip and clean everything, it’s for people who drive their cars,” says Davis.  “If someone has to drive the car two hundred miles to get here, we take that into account.  It’s driver friendly classes, everyone’s just in it to have a good time.”
