1967 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442 takes best of show at Wheels' Fest'

While ever car was a winner, Larry Grismore's 1967 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442 of Ottawa, took the Best of Show award at this year's Lions' Club Wheels' Fest.

"The 45th Festival of Wheels was a great success. I would like to thank all those involved in helping with the set up of the car show. It takes so many people to pull off an event like this," said Dennis Morrison, car show chairperson.

He continued: "We registered 163 cars and I counted at least 12 more cars that did not register, so with those 12 cars our total for this event was 175 classic and antique cars. I would also like to thank all those who sat at the registration tent and registered all the cars. The Bluffton Lions Club volunteers are the best.

"The voting was hard, there were 10 judges and all said it was so hard to pick the top 25 cars of the show. I would like to Thank all the judges for the fine job they did."
