The theme of the 2009 Iola Old Car Show will be "Imports & Independents." The Midwest's biggest old car show is scheduled for July 9-July 12. For information visit www.iolaoldcarshow.com.
Yours truly is working with the Fox Cities British Car Club (www.foxbrits.com) to get the ball rolling as far as the Imported Car section of the show is concerned, but all imported car clubs throughout the country are invited to participate. The more the merrier. We hope to include cars from England, Germany, Italy, Sweden, France, Russia and Japan. If anyone has an Irish-built Shamrock (looks kind of like a T-Bird), an Israeli-built Sabra or a Czech Tatraplane, feel free to bring them.
Hopefully the imported car theme will bring more foreign-built cars than ever before to Iola. Anyone interested in coming can contact the Car Show Office at 715-445-4000 or you can get directly in touch with me: John Gunnell, PO Box 87, Iola, WI 54945. I can be reached at Gunnellj@TDS.net or at 715-445-4262.
