Classic, vintage cars will fill fairgrounds this weekend

With more than 600 pre-1972 classic cars, street rods and pickups at the Nevada County Fairgrounds Saturday and Sunday as part of the fifth annual Roamin Angels Car Show, car lovers should find many items of interest.

Vehicles include T-bucket roadsters, Deuce coupes, ’40 Fords and many others in the street rod category; muscle cars, such as GTOs, Vettes, Chargers and Mustangs, in the stock category; ’20s, ’30s and ’40s’ classics; and stock and street rod trucks.

“Saturday night will be a ‘really big show,’ to quote the late Ed Sullivan,” said Ron Cherry, a Roamin Angles board member. “There will be a ‘Cruise of Champions’ where many of the participants will give attendees a show as they cruise around the fairgrounds.”

A dance concert follows the “Cruise of Champions,” from 6:30 to 10 p.m. Elvis, Cher, Tina Turner and Diana Ross impersonators will be preceded and backed by Mad Dash.

The car show also includes automotive-related vendors, Craft Faire and Treat Street food, soft drinks, beer and wine.

On Saturday, a pancake breakfast prepared by Nevada County Sheriff’s Department members runs from 8 to 10:30 a.m. (with an additional charge of $6), and the Nevada Union High School band commemorates 9/11 from 11 to 11:30 a.m. The awards presentation/parade in 64 categories will be from 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday.
