Dozens of shiny, classic cars lined the streets of Mount Shasta for the 27th annual Labor Day weekend Police Department Car Show & Shine.
Plaques were awarded to the owners of the top 14 favorite vehicles entered in Saturday’s Show & Shine.
Several award winners were residents of Mount Shasta, including:
• Cliff Schoedl, who won District Attorney’s Choice for a 1948 Chevy Stylemaster;
• Malou Shannon, who won Officer’s Choice for a 1952 Ford F1 Pickup;
• Cesar Gonzalez, who won Sheriff’s Choice for a 1985 Chevy Camaro IROC Z28;
• Rick Florendo, who won Participant’s Choice for a 1974 Ford Bronco.
Other Siskiyou County winners included:
• Rom and Rose Harris of Yreka, winning Dispatcher’s Choice with a 1942 Ford 2D and
• Buzz Hemmersly of Yreka, winning Police Chief’s Choice with a Willys Jeep.
The Longest Distance Traveled award went to Richard Miller of North Pole, Alaska for a 1965 Chevy Nova.
A 1919 Ford/American LaFrance fire engine owned by Wes Melo of Roseburg, Ore., won Fire Chief’s Choice.
The car show events commenced with Friday evening’s dinner and cruise. More than two dozen cars lined up on Everitt Memorial Highway to cruise around the city for about half an hour before digging in to a spaghetti feast hosted by the Mount Shasta Masonic Family.
The dinner, originally scheduled as an outdoor picnic at Shastice Park, was redirected to the community center due to the unpredictably cloudy sky on Friday evening.
Saturday’s Show & Shine included food, vendors and music accompanying the car display in the downtown area.
The Pit Stop auto shop set up a picnic area outside of its store front and served free hot dogs, soda and chips all day.
