Rainbow Motors co-owner Randall Gibson held the event with the help of Kingsport Antique and Rob Club members. It was for National Street Rod Appreciation Day and a pre-cursor to a NSRA car show set for May 4-6 in Knoxville. The event included door prizes for car owners.
Among cars on display were two from 1955, one a Chevrolet two-door Bel Air and the other an Oldsmobile 88 “Holiday” four-door, both owned by John Haynes. Roger Byington also brought his 1946 Chevrolet pickup truck, done in the “rat rod” style including rust and paint patina, while Jerry Collins had a 1950 shiny red Chevrolet five-window pickup.
