ADRIAN – A flock of car lovers gathered at Rivers Park in Adrian for the 10th annual Classics on the Grass car show last Saturday.

The show featured 40 original classics or authentically restored cars. 

Two judges evaluated the cars based on upholstery, fit and finish.

“We look at how the doors, whether the hood fits. Fit and finish is probably the main thing that I look for,” said Duke Fugate, one of the judges. “And just the overall condition … If you’ve done it a long time, you can really tell by the look.”

Dave Parr from Emmett, Idaho, won first place with his 1934 Chevy Sedan. Meanwhile, Kelly Bennett of Adrian placed second . . .
