Rod and Custom Association puts on ‘great show’ in Albion

Car show at fairgroundsCar enthusiasts by the hundreds turned out to view the vehicles at the Boone County Fairgrounds last Saturday, May 31, as the Nebraska Rod and Custom Association stopped through for a morning break during its annual 600-mile Tour Nebraska.

A total of 292 antique, classic, custom and specialty vehicles made the stop in Albion, for their morning break from 8:45 to 10 a.m. Donuts and coffee were served by about 20 volunteers. Leaders in the effort to host the Rod and Custom group were Bob Hartford, John Smith and Dee Schalk. The Cedar Rapids High School Honor Society was part of the serving group.

After leaving Albion, the cars traveled north through Petersburg, Elgin and Neligh, where they turned east toward Norfolk, which was their lunch stop. On the way south, back to Grand Island, the cars traveled through Humphrey, Lindsay and Genoa.
