Motor Money Benefits Charities


The Seventh Annual Rim Country Classic Auto Club Show Saturday at Payson High School was a huge hit, generating twice as much money as last year's event.

The show brought in a club record of $4,200, car club President Larry Bertram said, which will be used to benefit the club's three charities Habitat for Humanity, Payson Humane Society and RTA Hospice.

Also, the club will use some of the money to award a college scholarship to a graduating Payson High School senior next spring.

Bertram said the overwhelming success of this year's show which drew 138 classic cars from all over the state and Nevada was due to the hard work of the 120 club members.

"They've been out all over the state giving out fliers about the show ... the members really pulled together," he said.

Several of the local club members traveled to a Route 66 Classic Car run several weeks ago to publicize the Payson event.

While locals and visitors to the Payson show meandered through rows and rows of classic cars, a three-piece band played '50s, '60s and '70s music.

"The band was really popular," Bertram said. "It added to the show."

Following the show, prizes were awarded for first-, second- and third-place prizes in 18 categories.
