It's well worth the drive to McPherson to see the annual car show put on by the talented students of the McPherson College Automotive Restoration program - the country's only 4-year college degree in automotive restoration. It's the College Automotive Restoration Students (C.A.R.S.) Show for 2021!

It draws hundreds of cars of all makes, models, and manufacturers. There's bound to be something you like and new things you haven't discovered yet. Car placement begins at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday (most of us drive down very early Saturday morning) and you can elect to have your car judged in competition or simply put it on display. This will be the 21st annual show, so the sponsor has it down to a science.

Here's an except from the C.A.R.S. website with just a partial list of all the activities:

"This annual event is created and run entirely by the students of the McPherson College C.A.R.S. Club, which is the student-led organization of the Automotive Restoration program open to all students interested in antique and collector cars. Events begin Friday evening with a Cruise-in on Main in downtown McPherson beginning at 6 p.m. There is no registration required for this event and all car enthusiasts are invited to participate. On Saturday, the car show will feature the Model T build team, shop tours, and awards ceremony at the end of the day.

Among the many cars on display and activities throughout the day, the event also showcases feature cars that represent unique and rare vehicles."
