The parking lot of O’Reilly Auto Parts was full Saturday morning, with 35 cars both classic and modern taking up the spaces. The reason: Memories Car Club’s car show fundraiser. Participants in the show arrived early in the morning, with judging going til after lunch.

The show entries were divided into four classes. In the first class, Ronnie and Gail Smith’s 1965 Ford Falcon came in third, Harry Sullivan’s 1955 Chevrolet came in second, and Robert Adelstein’s 1957 Chevy Nomad came in first.

In the second class, JoAnne Sullivan’s 1999 Chevy Corvette came in third, Kim Thornes’s 1993 Chevy Corvette came in second, and Ron Black’s 2006 Chrysler 300 SRT8 came in first.
