The fastest set of wheels in town is washed and waxed and ready for show.

The amazing details and effort each person takes to preserve a classic car are something very special.

I was lucky enough to meet Ed Vosyka and Jim Fozzard, both from Newton County Tuesday.

Vosyka said he brings his 2010 Mustang Shelby GT500 to at least one car show a weekend as a way to spend time with his wife and enjoy the great outdoors.

This was the first big car show of the season thanks to great weather. The air was filled with the aromas of BBQ and the sounds of classic music from the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s.

Fozzard stood beside his 1931 Model A Ford telling me the story of how his father left the car in a barn for years until he decided to refurbish the old ride one day.

Most of the cars and trucks here are kept inside garages, never really seeing any road time, until it’s show time for everyone to enjoy.
