September 24, 2008CAPAC — For more than two decades businessman and car aficionado Carl Scholz has attracted some of the Midwest's finest classic vehicles to his shows at Capac High School.
For the 22nd Annual Autofest this Sunday, Sept. 28, Scholz will pay homage to an American automobile classic: The Chevy Corvette.
In particular, the show will feature a special tribute to Corvettes dating back to 1967 and earlier.
Scholz estimates that more than 1,500 vehicles representing 75 classes will be on display during the gigantic lawn show.
"Corvettes are among the most popular of American cars," says Scholz. "The response to this show has been very positive. Everybody's excited and upbeat about it."
Plaques will be issued to the first 1,000 pre-registered cars, with 280 trophies to be handed out to the owners of the top cars in designated categories.
"We've already got more than 700 cars pre-registered for this show," Scholz says. "This is a really big deal and one of the biggest events in Capac. This thing is getting so big that it's turned into a lot of work. But I still enjoy it. I thank everyone for their support."
Participants must pre-register to receive a "goody bag" or feature car award. Pre-registration ended on Saturday, Sept. 21.
Registration and judging will take place from 8-11 a.m. on Sunday and awards will be presented to the winners at 4 p.m.
