Annual car show offers fellowship and benefits sick children

BAY ST. LOUIS, MS (WLOX) -

We're a few weeks away from Cruisin' the Coast and already classic vehicles are showing up in South Mississippi. A display of vintage vehicles was put on over in Bay St. Louis for the annual Masonic Lodge Classic Car and Bike show.

Heather Snyder and her husband came in from Sun, Louisiana in their 1949 Chevy pickup. They say the event allows them to reunite with friends at the Masonic Lodge's Annual Classic Car and Bike show, which her car group the Misfits Street Krewzers helped organized.

"My husband has had it for 20 years and he totally redid it and he has a six cylinder motor in it," Snyder said.

Onlookers strolled through Main Street in Bay St. Louis to check out all the interesting vehicle features and paint jobs. Misfits member Donna Holland also came out to show off her 1930 Ford Sedan.

She said restoring vehicles opens you up to more than just stares.

"The car people, they are a group of friends and it's just great the way they do. They come out and help people. We all have something in common everybody gets along its just like a family," Holland said.

Snyder said events like this bring people together to talk and trade advice on restoration.

"You meet all kinds of different people and they have a truck like this and they don't know what to do with it," Snyder said.

That's when she and her husband offer up tips on cool additions they put on their truck like Cypress lining the trucks bed or their horn.

"People don't realize how much you have invested in these cars and I mean some of them 80, 90,000 dollars," Snyder said.

Behind the beautiful vehicles was a good cause.  All the proceeds from this event benefit Shriner's Hospital for Children.
