WADDINGTON - The 2012 edition of the Waddington Car Show held Aug. 4 was a huge success with more than 65 people displaying their vintage vehicles at Island View Park.
Among them was Alice Grant of Parishville who had her 1924 Model T on display for public viewing. But to her amazement, the most surprising hit of the show was the homemade trophies for the car show constructed from used car part by Scott Kocher.
What a talent to be able to make trophies out of old car parts to save money for the fire department, said Mrs. Grant of Mr. Kocher, an mechanic at Mort Backus & Sons, Ogdensburg. He puts a lot of care into this show, and I was lucky enough to win one of those beautiful trophies and I am very proud of it.
Everyone I talked to said what a wonderful idea and they were proud to have been able to win one for they were something different, she added.
Mrs. Grant and friend Mary Witherall applauded the chicken barbecue and everyone who took the time to bring their cars to the show.
Mary and I love to see all the beautiful cars and meet the people. They are so friendly and there is never a loss for conversation, Mrs. Grant stated.
It was a beautiful place for a car show at the park on the water. You could see ships going down the water ways and people with their boats watching from on the water. It was a very hot day but everyone was sitting under shade trees and the breeze from the water made it a perfect day, she said.
The car show was sponsored by the Waddington Volunteer Fire Department.
