The 24th annual Koyote Kruisers Show ‘n’ Shine Car Show was held last Saturday at Vesco City Park with over 120 diverse classes of cars from all over the western United States gleaming in the Winnemucca sunshine.
After a street cruise on Friday night, the vehicles took a spot on the lawn at Vesco to showcase their efforts and await the judging and the awards that took place on Saturday.
Harvey Cash is the Vice-President of the Koyote Kruisers Car Club and was one of the judges at Show ‘n’ Shine.
“We have been around since 1991 and we have about 60 members currently,” Cash said. “We like all kinds of cars; old, new, modified, or stock. Any car owner can be a part of our club. We have many different classes of cars here today, and we will give awards to first and second place in every class. We also have a people’s choice award and a best of show award.”
Food and vendor booths were on site for visitors and participants, making for a great excuse to bring the family down to take a look.
Chris Hanks from Battle Mountain has owned his 1938 Pontiac for five years and he fully restored it himself.
“This is my baby according to my wife,” Hanks said. “Working on cars is therapy, you will never see one of these parked outside a psychiatrist’s office.”
