Elm Grove Car Show is Back!

We will be on the phone talking with Larry Delonge about the Elm Grove Car Show. This show has always been a favorite with a lot of car and motorcycle enthusiasts. However, with it’s cancelation during the pandemic and the past organizers not returning – this show was doomed to be canceled forever.

Welcome the Elm Grove Golden K Kiwanis Club. They decided to step up and become the new organizes of the show. Their works provide opportunities to bring awareness to the many needs from children to older adults. From their involvement to provide specialty iPads to children on the autism spectrum, book drives for the Literacy Council, scholarships for disabled campers and assistance to the Salvation Army Christmas drives.

Even though the show has free admission it is the hope that car and bike enthusiasts will join them in collecting donations to support their missions.

Car Show Details:

Sunday, July 25th – 10 am to 2 pm.
Rain or Shine show
On-street show in downtown Elm Grove.

What Color is Vroom?

There is a really cool article (posted on WHRR website) about the many interesting colors available for those cars with lots of power and styling.

Most performance cars are black, white, silver or gray, and the most basic principle of economics is the reason: They’re the colors most buyers want.

Most—but not all.

According to surveys by automotive paint maker PPG Industries and, more than three-fourths of all vehicles sold last year—including performance cars, muscle cars and sports, cars—were black, white or gray, with silver being the fourth most popular hue. Most of the rest were red or blue, leaving only a little room for all other colors.
