Auto show brings in scholarship funds

Annual event the largest so far

Posted: Sunday, July 7, 2013 11:44 pm

“Gearheads” and other car enthusiasts dominated the courthouse square Saturday for an event that not only highlighted “sweet rides” and their hardworking owners but raised scholarship money for local high school seniors.

This year’s Annual Open Car Show held by the Hill Country Auto Club was the biggest yet in its 15-year history, according to club officials, with 147 entries competing in 30 categories, including muscle car, rat rod, antique truck and more. Most contestants were from within 100 miles of town, but some came from as far away as Fort Worth and Cotulla, just north of Laredo. Entry fees in the show contribute to $1,000 scholarships to four high seniors each year.
