Autumn Leaves Car Show Sept. 10

D enise Davies is hoping to see more than 200 show vehicles pulling into the Granville Elementary School parking lot for Sunday’s 26th annual Autumn Leaves Car Show, but she’s quick to point out that the Granville Chamber of Commerce-sponsored event will have more than just cars and trucks.

“Glens Falls Hospital is going to be here for their Community vs. Cancer fund-raising drive,” said Davies, who is in charge of the event. “They asked us if they should come, and we said, ‘Sure.’ This is a community event. We are glad to have them.”

The hospital is raising funds for a new machine for its cancer center, and Granville’s Bev Tatko is one of the leaders of that fund drive.

Davies said many Granville residents use the hospital’s cancer center, so this is a good way to help.

The car show will also host the local Adopt-a-Soldier volunteers, who work to send packages to troops overseas. Granville American Legion will be grilling hot dogs and hamburgers, and Stewart’s Shops will have coffee, doughnuts and breakfast sandwiches available in the morning. There will be new T-shirts available, and Davies expects last year’s T-shirts will be available for a discounted prices.

The, of course, there are the cars.

They will start rolling in before 9 a.m. and will come from as far south as Albany, as far north as Ticonderoga and from various parts of Vermont.

The event will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will include awards in 26 classes, as well as 15 special awards and 13 major sponsor awards.

Entry for those showing vehicles is $20 and includes a T-shirt and a chance to win a $50 gas card. Spectator admission is $3, and those 15 and under are free. There will be two door prizes – a 32-inch LCD television and a solid oak computer work table.

Competition classes range from 1939 and before, Corvettes, muscle cars, PT Cruisers, Mustangs, street rods and motorcycles.

For further information, please contact Davies at 642-2640 or at 802-342-6298 on the day of the event.

Sunday’s forecast calls for temperatures in the low 60s and a 40 percent chance of rain.

“We’ll have to hope that forecast is wrong,” Davies said. “I was looking at the numbers, and last year we only had 135 or 140 cars. We need the good weather.”
