Car and truck show offers variety

Last year, says Davis, the vintages ranged from “as old as a 1948 Ford truck (wood sides) to a 2013 Mercedes-Benz.”

Judging starts at 10 a.m.June 21 for winners in two divisions: 1985 and older; 1986 and later.

Categories include Best Ford, Best Mopar, Best GM, Best Foreign, Best Other, Best Truck, Best Paint, Best Interior and Best Engine.

Emphasizing the relaxed environment, Davis admits: “I am not into old cars, but I always like to help out at the Blueberry Festival. We moved up here from Kure Beach eight years ago and have been involved in things here ever since. I was born at Carolina Beach. Built a house at Kure Beach 21 years ago נthen it got too crowded, so we moved to Burgaw. And love it.”

Speaking of the environment, Davis is doing his best not to leave unwanted trophies laying about during festival cleanup.

“There will be a first place and second place in all classes, and an overall winner,” he says. “But we will not have a third place this year.”
