Hartford Car Show Sunday

G ot a car that’s worth showing off?

With fall comes a number of car shows in the area; this Sunday, Oct. 13, the Hartford Class of 2014 will sponsor its own with the school’s 12th annual Classic Cruise on in n’ Show it Off car show.

The event, which Class Advisor Andrea Stoddard started in 2004 as a fun fundraiser for the senior class, is currently the students’ largest source of income.

“I did it originally so that kids would appreciate the beauty of the way cars were,” she said. She stressed that the show is organized by the students and completely benefits only them.

“It’s fun for them; they really come together as a class. It’s a great thing for the kids, and it’s a great thing for the community—it gives the kids a feeling of pride,” she said.

This year’s show will provide a day of entertainment for auto-enthusiasts from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

There is no cut off year for show cars for the event, which typically attracts registrants from a wide area.

“It was originally only classic cars, but the kids wanted there to be other kinds, so we brought in any year,” Stoddard said.

The cars can enter in a variety of categories, including crowd pleasers, most likely to be pulled over, favorite GM and Ford, super sixties and more.

There will be music all day long, and food and beverages will be available. The senior class will offer baked goods and coffee, and there will be hamburgers, hot dogs, soda, water and candy for sale as well.

Additionally, the first 50 participating vehicles will receive dash plates.

The show will take place rain or shine, and proceeds will help the seniors with such events as graduation and their senior trip.

“I hope that the community will come out and show their cars to help out the kids; it’s really all about them,” Stoddard said.

The cost for participating cars, which are asked to show up at 9 a.m., is $8 for early entry and $10 for day-of-show entry. Admission for spectators is $3.
