The 10th annual Beech Grove Carz ‘R’ Us Charity Car Show was Sunday, and one couldn’t have asked for better weather on an early autumn day.
More than 200 classic and custom cars and hotrods from every decade the automobile has been produced were on display. There were also several vintage and present-day motorcycles and modified factory production cars.
The show is largely pulled off through the efforts of John O’Gara. Food and beverages were available, and raffles were held for various prizes, including a 55-inch television. Proceeds benefit Beech Grove’s Shop With a Cop program, Noble of Indiana and Kottages for Kids.
Sarah Fisher, former IndyCar driver and now co-owner of CFH Racing, was in attendance with her husband and children. She was ready to talk about all things racing. CFH Racing displayed its Midget car for Kyle O’Gara and its IndyCar for Josef Newgarden.
The near-perfect weather attracted a large number of spectators who wandered up and down Main Street admiring the cars. Thanks to all who participated and donated so much to make it a great event.
Don’t forget that The Southsider Voice’s last cruise-in of the season gets underway at 6 p.m. Friday at 6025 Madison Ave.
