The new venue was perfect as the Tennessee Valley Mustang Club held the third annual Travis Wegener Memorial Car Show Aug. 19 at Powell High School.
Shiny Fords with raised hoods lined the school’s parking lot three deep for the event. Afterwards, awards went to owners of the Top 40 Fords, plus specialty awards. Excuse our spelling and we’ll list as many of these as we could write down during the awards presentation (will update if obtain better list):
Volunteer Street Rods – club participation award
Jim Maddox – best engine and peoples choice awards
Gordy Fleenor – best paint
Steve Buffalo – best interior
Jeremy Wiederspahn – PHS choice
Holly Gamble Funeral Home – Wegener family choice
George Hackett – best in show (pre-1979)
Sarah (?) – best of show (1979 or newer)
Doug and Donna Loveday were all over the place. Volunteers from Sharon Baptist Church grilled hamburgers and hot dogs — food donated by Food City. Members of the Powell Business & Professional Association sold lunch and donated silent auction items
Sean and Tracy Metz collected items for the silent auction. Final proceeds have not been calculated, but donations will be designated for the Collier Preserve, a project of the PBPA’s Enhance Powell committee.
