Right Stuff Car Show returns for 4th year


Hundreds of classic cars, games and free food will flood the parking lot of The Right Stuff Detailing, 200 Intek Way, from noon to 6 p.m. July 11.

The fourth annual Right Stuff Car Show once again will raise money for the Arthritis Foundation.

Last year's show brought in more than 300 cars, including many Mustangs, Chevelles and Camaros from the 1960s and 1970s, as more than $6,000 was raised for the foundation, said Todd McClure, one of the event's organizers.

There were also some surprises at last year's show, including the appearance of a Bugatti, a top-of-the line sports car.

"I don't know who brought that or how they heard about our show," McClure said.

Organizers are expecting an even better show this year, McClure said, as the money raised in advance through the show already has nearly met last year's total.

"That's pretty exciting this year to have donations roll in before we even get started," McClure said.

The show also will add the appearance of the NASCAR FedEx car.

Once again, show patrons will be treated to free hamburgers and brats, and music from a DJ as they take in the classic cars, McClure said.

There will be games and a raffle to raise additional funds for the Arthritis Foundation.

"It's a good way to spend a Thursday afternoon," McClure said.

Even those who don't have an overwhelming interest in cars would be interested in the show because of the volume and quality of cars it draws in, he said.

"The cars are amazing, whether you're an enthusiast of classic cars or not," he said. "They're just beautiful, beautiful cars."

For those looking to bring a car to the show, there is no advance registration.

Drivers of the first 200 cars will receive free T-shirts, and 100 plaques will be given to the cars deemed "Best of Show."
