Cruising in Evart

Car show at Riverside Park draws large participation

EVART — Line after line of classic and newer cars rolled through the streets of Evart Friday, ending at Riverside Park for the annual car show.

“This is always a big show, and it’s bigger this year,” said Gene Kurdos, event staff.

A different type of registration this year caused some computer problems, Kurdos said.

“We are putting everyone in our computer system,” Evart Car Club President Jim Rohen said. “Then people will be in our system and next year will be easier.”

A variety of vendors came to show with jewelry, pictures, graphics for clothes, car cleaning equipment and food. The main food source, was the General Federation of Women’s Clubs.

“We are going to fill this park,” Rohen said. “This event is open to anyone.”

One vehicle drawing attention was Frank Fedewa’s “Bad to the Bone” truck, decorated with skeletons, fake limbs and a motion-activated clown.

“I’m really into Halloween,” Fedewa said. “My kids and I built this for the kids who come to these shows and don’t get to touch anything.”
