7th annual His Place car show ready to roll

(4/19) The His Place Car Show, sponsored by Bill Kuhn, III, of His Place, will hold its 7th annual event on May 6th on the grounds of the Mother Seton School. In case of rain, the event will be held the following weekend, on May 13th.

This event was originally established to raise funds for Mother Seton School, and in the past the event has additionally raised money for the Emmitsburg Osteopathic Primary Care Center. This year, all funds will be donated to Mother Seton School as well as Hospice Frederick County. The show, Kuhn said previously, "benefits everyone involved" by providing commercial enterprises with a means to advertise their participation, and providing funds to hospice care and our local school.

Kuhn hopes for a sunny weekend this year, because unfortunately last year, the event was rained out. He hopes to keep the event growing every year, bringing in more vehicles and participants. In the past, the event has raised as much as $2,600. As far as his goal for this yearís event, Billy said he would like to see the event raise "as much as we can possibly get."

Dozens of vehicles will be on display, including cars, trucks and motorcycles, covering a period of time from the antique to 70ís, 80ís, 90ís, and 2,000ís hotrods to all types of motorcycles. Rows of vehicles will be lined-up with their hoods open for spectators and judges to get a good look inside the vehicle. The automobiles and trucks will present a dazzling array of colors from the solemn blacks and grays of the Depression Era to the gaudy bright colors of the Age of Hot Rods.

Also featured again this year will be music, as well as food, door prizes and raffles. The entry fee is $15 at the door and $12 if you choose to pre-register.

Dating back to the Ď60s itself, His Place was founded in 1969 by Bill Kuhn. Sr.. After having been established a repair shop, the business soon become involved in the restoration of classic cars, especially Corvettes. Holding a car show featuring the some of the best-restored vehicles in the area, for car lovers to enjoy, while raising money for local organizations, was a no-brainer for Kuhn. He hopes to be able to continue this event for years to come.
