Car Show raises over $3K for Families in Crisis
More than $3,000 was raised for Families in Crisis last Saturday during Great Bodies Car Show and Swap Meet. Among the 60 classic rides in attendance was this 1965 Satellite owned by Davey Boyd. Pictured is G.L. Wilcher, left, and Boyd.

The 5th annual Great Bodies Car Show and Swap Meet raised more than $3,000 for Families in Crisis.
“We had nearly 60 classic rides, from cars and trucks to motorcycles,” said Blaine Wilcher, event organizer.
Glen Randall’s red 1967 Chevy Chevelle won the Top Gun award, also known as Best of Show.
“The awards have names that reflect something from the ’80s,” said Wilcher. “For instance, the award given for the best Rat Rod is called the Mad Max award. Glen was the first one to register and the last one to leave. He left with several awards.”
Davey Boyd’s 2009 IHRA champion drag car was a crowd favorite. Boyd, a resident of Spencer, was in attendance with his 1965 Satellite that in 2009 was awarded the Summit SuperSeries No Box World Championship at the IHRA World Finals at Rockingham Dragway.
Wilcher sent out a thank you to all the volunteers and more than 20 sponsors, including Dr Pepper, that helped make the event a success and raise over $3,000 for the organization, adding next year’s event might have a new location and date.
“I have been approached with the possibility of joining with Smokin’ in McMinnville next year or possibly moving the show to a cooler time in September or October,” he said.
