Car owners are putting their best wheels forward at this weekend's Wheels Under Cover Car Show.
More than a dozen contestants competed for the title of "best in show," but it wasn't so much about the big prize as it was about the stories behind each car that's entered.
They're all shined up, and ready for inspection.
More than a dozen car owners came to the Bridwell Agricultural Center seeking the coveted title of "best in show" at the Wheels Under Cover Car Show.
"We have got them all cars. We got pick ups, corvettes, mustangs, delivery sedans, panel trucks, roadsters low riders," said Roy Huston from Townsquare Media, which put on the event.
And while all the cars may be different in style, one thing's the same, they've all got very proud owners.
"This was just a greases mess when I got it. So this takes a lot of time and effort to completely redo it and everything," said Owen Ross, who's all aglow when he talks about his 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle.
And that's probably because he's been able to capture a handful awards with his blue muscle car.
"Why do you think this car wins so many awards? What puts it above the rest?"
"A lot of love and time goes into it. It really does," he said.
And though the awards are nice accessories displayed in front of his engine, He says he finds something even more gratifying in the hobby.
"I love to bring it out and listen to people who used to have one and it's just a nostalgic, talking to them and reminiscing with them of what they had," he said.
"Because these cars aren't just cars, they are stories,"
"Yes, yes they really are," Ross said.
The winner of today's best in show receives five hundred dollars. And several other winners received 75 dollars for best paint, engine, and best interior.
