Benefit for Starving Artist
Masterson Station Park in Lexington, KY was the site of the 2nd Annual Tear Jerker 2011 Custom Car & Show. Held Saturday, June 4, the event featured custom, non-custom and antique cars, trucks, motorcycles, rat rods and jeeps, including late model cars and trucks. In addition to the vehicles and vendors, Ice Man was on hand playing the favorite oldies along with a car corral.
There were over 300 entries, comprised of every make and model, out on this beautiful day to display the cherished memories of chrome, metal and steel. These automobiles are a lovely piece of history and a reminder of a time when the ability to get from one place to another was not taken for granted. Among visitors of the show were also cartoon characters cruising in their owners automobiles which provided much entertainment for the youngsters. And if you had the opportunity to stop by the concession stand for an iced cold Ale-8, water or a hot dog you would be delightfully served by Karl Shannon, of 100.7fm radio station, the most popular Radio DJ in the area. Karl was on duty helping his dear friends most of the day. Although Karl had his 1978 Chevrolet El Camino as an entry, he expressed his concern to help, due to a good cause.
