Sweet Autumn Kiss Classic And Rare Car Show

Fall is here, and cooler weather is too. So we are extending a heartfelt invitation to everyone in and around the Lexington, surrounding area, and all places near and far to bring their Classic and Rare Cars to our show. Dream Cars of Lexington, Texas, Mary Atkins and Sam Scoggins will be producing, sponsoring, and presenting their 5th Annual car show Sweet Autumn Kiss in conjunction with The Chocolate Lovers Festival on Saturday, Oct. 16, 2010.

Last years show (2009) was a huge success with 28 Classic & Rare cars shown!!! Seven of which belonged to show sponsor and producer Dream Cars. Dream Cars moved their Classic & Rare Car Collection to Tanglewood when owners Mary Atkins and Sam Scoggins moved back to the Lexington area. Some of the cars they showed last year were a 1977 Tahiti Blue MGB Roadster, a 1980 Teal Green Avanti II which is a very rare coach built car, a Turquoise and White 1964 Ford F100 half ton Pickup which was built as a Tribute to Sam’s late father, and a Bumble Bee Yellow and Black 1973 Split Bumper Camaro made popular by the “Transformer” movie released a couple of years ago.

Show classes range from pre 1930’s to present 2010 cars. First, Second and Third place trophies are given out in each class along with other Speciality trophies. Last year (2009) all cars received at least one trophy. Some received two such as the 1967 White VW Beetle owned by Lexington’s very own Tana Renfroe which took 2nd place in its class along with a speciality trophy for closest distance. Closest distance was a toss up be- Beetles and two Mustangs, all of the 1960’s vintage. He has spent many hours rubbing, sanding and painting these cars, in restoring them to perfection.

Last year there were cars from every decade beginning with a Two Tone Black and Silver 1934 Chrysler owned by Harold & Charlotte Jackson of Belton, TX and ending with a 2005 Silver Modified Chevy Silverado owned by Billy Shelton of San Antonio and formerly of Lexington. A Special guest at the show was a 1979 Black and Gold Pontiac Trans Am known as “Bandit” from the Smokey & the Bandit movie series of that era. This car was just recently purchased by Carla and Charlie Bates of Lyon, TX and brought here from California. Charlie & Carla are the nephew and niece of show producer Sam Scoggins.

Great fun was had by all entrants last year (2009) and we want to again come together this year (2010) with the community spirit and fun that we had at last fall’s show. We hope that you will plan on being here to have more fun with us again this year and help by sharing ideas and feedback between now and then. Please invite your friends.
