Expect to see lots of classic cars in Moose Jaw this weekend.
The sixth annual Bent Wrench Run show and shine will be held on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Wakamow Skating Oval.
The show is hosted by members of Those Guys Car Club. They expect hundreds of vehicles to participate in a wide range of styles.
“Anything goes, as long as it is of special interest,” said club member Kevin Brown. “If you are really proud of it, bring it down and show it off. We’ve had semis, we’ve had bikes, dune buggies — pretty much the whole gamut.”
The cost to enter the show is $10. The event is free for spectators.
Brown says it is the perfect way to spend time with dad on Father’s Day.
“It gives families something to do. This is very a family-friendly event and so this is a great opportunity to bring along your dad and let him walk through the cars.”
Proceeds from the event will support Hunger in Moose Jaw.
“We want to make sure kids have enough food so they can do their studying at school,” said Brown. “We just want to help them out a little bit.”
The event will also include a contest to determine the best sounding exhaust. Prizes will be awarded.
“At about 2 or so, anyone who wants to participate, we will line them up so they can show off their exhaust,” said Brown. “It is all based on crowd participation, so the crowd votes on it. It is all just in fun, there are no technicalities or nothing like that.”
Once again, there will be a swap meet component to the show.
“People bring their car parts that they want to sell because they’ve either changed projects or they have got extra parts, so they are selling them. It’s almost like a garage sale. We are hoping for a good turnout. This is only our second try at the swap meet, so hopefully it garners more attention.”
Although the show itself will take place on Sunday, the fun actually starts on Saturday with a cruise night, beginning at 6 p.m.
“It’s basically for anyone that is out and about,” said Brown. “They can come out and drive their cars around like an old high school cruise night. It’s about using the cars for what they are meant for, rather than just sitting in a field.”
