Just Cruisn' Car Show held at La Posada
Just Cruisn' Car Club held its annual show on the grounds of La Posada this year. Members of the club said that although the number of cars was down slightly this year, the quality of those being shown was up. The crowd appreciated all of the show and special raffle winners Mike Dugger who won the engine and took $1000 and Chip Cunningham who won the electric car being raffled by the Friends of the Library both had very good days.
Best of Show was won by Stan Cornforth of Flagstaff with a 1923 Ford T bucket. The Best Mopar was Wayne Hanson's Orange 67 Coronet; the Mayor's Choice was Bill and Nancy Wilkins' black and purple 33 Ford Vicky; Best Paint, multi-colored, went to Jeremy and Andrea Baca's 92 Hondo; Best Chevy was won by Anthony Duran's black 65 Malibu; Best Interior was in Tom and Peggy Noble's 41 Chevy grey and purple two-door; the best Ford was a 65 Mustang convertible owned by Mark and Kim Arthur; and the Best Engine was in Charles McLaws' 55 Chevy.
