DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Throughout Saturday afternoon some of the finest sets of wheels were displayed for thousands to see at the National Peanut Festival Fairgrounds.
From new school rides to the classical cruisers, many people from across the Tri-state area packed the BankPlus Arena to show off their sweet rides in the Annual National Peanut Festival Car and Truck Show.
Contestants were all competing for a chance to win one of 24 trophies such as best-in-show, people’s choice, and many more.
For those like Jimmy Minton, the owner of a 1971 Chey Chevelle which he calls the “Grape Ape”, he says this show is a wonderful opportunity for people to meet and share their love for cars of all types.
“See the variety of cars and the conversations that pop up,” Minton said. “Talking to folks that just have that nostalgic feeling about these old cars. Good to make connections with folks, that’s what I enjoy most.”
If you did not get a chance to see the show and look at the different rides, don’t worry.
The National Peanut Festival will be filled with different events each and every day until November 12.
