As in other years, the car show will feature a wide variety of classic cars and trucks from the 1940s through the 1980s—and even some cars older than that! Also, as in other years, there will be FREE ADMISSION to the car show! Everyone is invited to stop by and “stroll through the past” while dreaming about the cars from yesteryear!
Mike Kmiecik, president of SCABA, has affirmed that the Street Kings Car Club of Minneapolis-St. Paul will again co-host the car show, as it has done for the last few years. “Last year’s car show was our best car show ever in terms of the number of cars that participated,” stated Kmiecik. “We had some cars displayed on Chicago Avenue for the first time, instead of just having cars on 48th Street on both sides of Chicago Avenue. We like being able to spread out the car show, if we can. Hopefully, this year we’ll be able to spread it out even more.”
Kmiecik mentioned that the car show was open to anyone who wanted to exhibit their classic cars or trucks. He also added that the car show would feature a “bounce house” for kids, as well as a D.J. who would be “spinning” classic ’50s–’80s tunes, plus a “beer garden” operated by Adrian’s Tavern. Kmiecik also said that he expected the “paint car” to be available again this year for the kids to turn into a “work of art”—for free! Of course, all of that will be in addition to the great restaurants and other businesses around the 48th and Chicago intersection that will be open that day.
Kmiecik noted that there was a small registration fee for each vehicle registered in the show: $10 for preregistered vehicles; $20 for day-of-show registrations. Anyone interested in  entering the car show should check out SCABA’s website at www.48chicago.org for more information. We hope to see you there!
