One of the Midwest’s longest running winter car shows returns to Monticello, Iowa, for the 50th consecutive year to brighten up a cold February weekend. KCRG TV9 Presents the O’Reilly Auto Parts Rod & Custom Car Show on Feb. 23-24. It’s affordable family fun featuring a new selection of street rods, custom cars, street machines, hot pickups, race cars and custom motorcycles.
The vehicles all will be competing for trophies from Magic Dry US and cash awards from Citizens State Bank.
Featured celebrity this year is Actor and champion bodybuilder Lou Ferrigno. Ferrigno was only 21 when he won his first Mr. Universe title, a Guinness Book world record that stands to this day. After retiring from body building Lou created the TV role of “The Incredible Hulk.” He has appeared in numerous movies and TV shows. Most recently, he and his family started Ferrigno FIT – a community focused on positive habits, lifestyles, and ideas.
Lou Ferrigno will be available for autographs and photos Saturday from noon to 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday.
The show is just as much about the spectators as the cars. Attendees can vote for People’s Choice Awards in Cars & Pickups, Motorcycles and Model Cars. Attendees can also win gift cards from O’Reilly Auto Parts, Magic Dry US and Citizens State Bank.
