Cream of the Crop Car Show Grows for Year Two


The 'Cream of the Crop' car show is coming back for a second year.

It's going to be held August 25 on the last day of the annual Tecumseh Corn Festival.

The event, organized by the town along with Muscle Cars & Classics, will also be bigger than last year.

Marketing Coordinator, Dave Laitinen says it will once again showcase the top 50-cars from area car shows but they're adding a general car show with 50 more vehicles.

"There was a lot of feedback last year that they loved it and more people actually wanted to go into it," says Laitinen. "Since we wanted to keep that uniqueness of the 50 that are all fighting together, why not open it up so there's more room for everybody else, to kind of bring out their cars and showcase them off to all the people heading out to the car festival."

He says all types of vehicles will be on display.

"It was surprising to see some newer vehicles, some European vehicles as well," says Laitinen.  "There's always going to be the tried and true of the muscle cars and those old classic cars."

Tom "The Car Guy" Smith from the Discovery Channel's 'Misfit Garage' will be this year's special guest.

CTV Windsor's Jim Crichton will be the master of ceremonies for the car show.
