IOLA, Wis. (WAOW) – time to start your engines.
The Iola Car Show is back and the people behind all these cool rides say they have never seen a bigger audience.
“People appreciate what they see, I mean, just as much as they do when I see someone else’s car. They can look at the work they put into it and the things that have been done to get to that point who the car is standing, “said Roy Bohm. .
The auto show also says that there is a story behind every car.
For Pete Suski it’s a 73 Pontiac Amands Grand Am.
He made it his in 1975 through a family estate.
“Bucket seats, gearshifts on the floor, are you kidding me ?! You drive Cadillacs and Buicks and stuff, so it was really a decent car and I made up my mind one day that I would own a car and we did “said Suski.
Years of maintenance have gone into these classics, and car owners say the hard work pays off when they see younger children looking at their cars.
“I mean, what are these kids going to want to do as they get older, are they going to stick with the old cars and want to be something of that era? Hopefully they’ll continue the era,” said Dave Pagel.
A list of events for the Saturday events can be found on the auto show’s website.
