The George West Storyfest Classic Car Show, sponsored this year by Kinsel’s Live Oak Motors, drew a record 42 cars. This year the 1966 Ford Mustang owned by Juan Curiel of Corpus Christi received the most votes for Crowd Favorite.

Classic car owners from across South Texas, from Corpus Christi to San Antonio, brought their cars to display. Upon arrival, the owners registered their cars so they could receive a number for crowd voting.

Registering cars and counting votes this year were Car Show Committee member Margaret Bednorz and volunteers Pat Sims of George West and Pam Fordtran of Corpus Christi. Committee Chairman Jim Guthrie, Bernard Bednorz, and Charlie Sims lined the cars and oversaw the show. Guthrie deems his team the “World’s Best Workers” for the outstanding job they did to make this year’s car show a record-breaking success.

Various area businesses donated door prizes for the car show participants, and seven lucky winners took home the prizes. Storyfest does not charge an entry fee for the show, unlike many shows of its kind. Guthrie and the car show committee thank all of this year’s participants and look forward to another record-breaking year in 2011.
