West Plains Car Club

THE WEST PLAINS CAR CLUB Car Show is happening from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday in the east parking lot of the civic center along East Main Street. Registration is open from 8 a.m. until noon, and awards are expected to be announced at about 2 p.m. Merritt Silva, 17, Car Club member, visited the Quill with two of his trucks to help promote the show, accompanied by fellow club members John Burgdorf and George Reinholdt, all of West Plains. Silva, who will begin his senior year at West Plains High School in the fall, said his love of cars began when he was 14 and became interested in detailing. He poses here with his 1969 GMC pickup, standard transmission. Behind that is Burgdorf’s 1965 Ford Mustang hatchback, and behind that is Silva’s other truck, a 1981 Chevrolet 4x4. Reinholdt also brought a two tone 1953 Studebaker, with a red body and white hood. All four vehicles will be shown in the car show.
