BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

It was a hot day with some cool people over at Edgewater Mall on Saturday, as dozens of people came out for the annual Mississippi Coast Mustang Club Car Show. The club has been around for 36 years, and this is its 35th car show.

Nearly 100 cars of all makes, models, colors and sizes were registered to show off their style in the open car show. Organizers say proceeds from the car show will benefit local charities.

“Car people are enraptured by their cars, but they're very giving people. They know this is for charity so they pay their registration fee, they buy their raffle tickets, they bid on silent auction items and it's not because they need another bottle of car wash,” said Craig Grisoli, President of the Mississippi Coast Mustang Club. “They know clubs like ours and other clubs in the area donate the proceeds to charity, and that's the best thing about car clubs on the Coast.”

Last year, the club was able to give $10,000 back to local charities.
