Photos and story by Monty Siekerman
Cars were polished to the max at the 12th annual car show held on a beautiful Saturday afternoon at the County Line Church of the Brethren.

Car owners were glad to talk about their “beauties” and relate some history of their cars. There was music and a chicken BBQ, as well. The youngsters enjoyed a bounce house and the Church’s playground equipment.

Next car show: Ada VFW Cruz-n from 5-7 p.m. Saturday, July 21. Main Street will be cordoned off from 1-8 p.m. for sidewalk sales and the car show. The Ada Icon is one of the major sponsors.
