Almost perfect weather resulted in one of the largest Fourth of July Car Shows ever sponsored by the Tri-County Car Club at Campbellsville University.
Registration totaled 147 and included about 15 motorcycles.
About 20 club members also had cars on display but did not compete for awards.
Winner of Best of Show was Chris Tetzlaff of Glasgow, Ky. with a 1963 Chevy Impala.
ABOUT THE CLUB
The Tri-County Car Club was formed on June 8, 1986 to encourage the preservation, collection and exhibition of classic and custom cars and trucks.
The club originally consisted of members from Taylor, Marion and Adair counties in Kentucky. It now has members from many counties.
Members meet on the first Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. at Bible Baptist Tabernacle, 105 50 Bambi Drive in Campbellsville.
Each year the club sponsors a monthly cruise during the summer and a car show on the Fourth of July. It also assists Campbellsville University with a Homecoming Car Show. Look for details about all of those on this website

Because there were no applicants for this year's auto-realated scholarship, the club will be giving the $500 to Campbellsville University for its scholarship fund.
