Shrinerfest Car
Show 2012
After a year off the Shrinerfest Car Show returned to the downtown Evansville river front and the popularity of
this event picked up where it left off. This show always attracts a number of out of state cars and trucks that the
city doesn't often see, and this year was no exception.  The Owensboro, KY Corvette Lovers Vette Club (above)
brought cars from a wide range of years.  And, the Wayne County Misfits Car Club from southern Illinois
cruised in with a nice contingent of muscle cars and restorations.  
Not one, but two
Ford GTs were on
hand, giving show
goers a chance to
compare the
original 1966
GT-40 (below)  
with a 2006
version (below
right).
(Above) This 1929 Whippet drew a lot of attention.  It sat in storage in Detroit for 65
years before being rescued a few months ago.  The owner rebuilt the engine,
cleaned out the gas tank and has since logged 300 miles.  (Left)  A 1956 Chevrolet
is a diamond in the rough.  (Below) In 1956 Ford built this truck to hall, now with
some modification it really halls.
