For the 19th year in a row, flashy, classic, and interesting cars will line Main Street for the Settler Magnetos’ annual Car Show and Cruise event on June 8th.

The Show ’N Shine event will feature around 40 vehicles of all makes and models and is open for, “Anyone who wants to show off their vehicle,” said Scott Roenspies, this year’s president of the Magnetos Car Club.

“Everyone is invited to come,” he said, mentioning that even a semi truck is entered in the show this year.

Cars will line the north end of Main Street by the town office, from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. Vehicles can be entered in the Show ’N Shine for $5 per car.

A license plate plaque will be awarded to participants who are judged for having the best Chevy, Mopar, Ford, truck and Prewar vehicles.

Spectators of the Show ’N Shine can also vote on their favourite vehicle under the ‘People’s Choice’ category.

“Everyone enjoys car shows,” Roenspies said, encouraging families to attend the Show ’N Shine. He further noted that the Show ’N Shine will continue rain or shine.

Following the car show, participants will ‘cruise’ to Clive and join together for a steak supper, $22 per plate, at Rooster’s Road House (minors not permitted).

Roenspies said they are still deciding the exact route they will travel but mentioned that they may take Hwy. 601 and “cruise up to Alix.”

The Settler Magnetos Car Club is a not-for-profit and has put on many events to support local charities. Since 2000, the Club has donated nearly $120,000 to various charities from proceeds of events.

The Club is open to anyone who shares an automotive passion.
