For the 12th straight year, the Mid-Mo Old Car Club will hold the event in conjunction with the Old Munichburg Association's Oktoberfest. Organizers expect about 100 cars to participate in the car show Sept. 29.
Registration for the show begins at 8 a.m. and runs until 11 a.m that Saturday. The show will be held on Broadway Street between the corners of Cedar Way Alley and West Ashley Street.
Wes Scott, a member of the Mid-Mo Old Car Club, expects to see a handful of vintage cars like Model T Fords entered. To help attract cars built in the early days of the automobile, all cars built before 1945 can register for free.
"Most of the car shows these days are the new cars," Scott said. "We started out with the old ones and encourage people with the really old cars to come."
The event has 17 classes. Registration for the 15 classes for cars built after 1945 costs $15. Cars from 1993 are the oldest that can be entered.
The Mid-Mo Old Car Club formed in 1971. Over the years, the show has bounced around to different places, Scott said. In 2007, the Old Munichburg Association and Mid-Mo Old Car Club started holding their events together after a member of both groups brokered a partnership.
Scott said holding the event at the same time as Oktoberfest allows both events to draw more people.
"We get a lot of spectators instead of just the old car people," he said.
Members of the club said they are excited for the event.
Virgil Borgmeyer, of Meta, said he plans to showcase his green 1968 Dodge Charger, which he bought in 1969 six months before he married his wife, Cathy.
"I look forward to it every year," Borgmeyer said. "It's a good show every year."
