WILLCOX — Thirteen was the lucky number for Willcox last weekened.
That’s because Saturday saw the 13th annual car show to benefit the Rex Allen Museum, and the chrome sparkled all along Railroad Avenue.
The show lured car owners to Willcox, but it was the perfectly sunny weather that made for a perfect day. This show touted 69 car entries, which was a record-breaking number.
Cars were judged, and owners talked shop as this annual car show sparkled for possibly the last time.
Orchestrator of the show, Michelle Mullins, who has been in charge of the show from the beginning, will be moving away from the area and will not be able to coordinate future events.
“We had at least 20 more cars than normal,” Mullins said. “This is also my last one here for Willcox, so it’s like a nice little sendoff. It’s a top 20 competition. They are judged. They pay to enter and to be judged, but we always let them in if they just want to enter and not be judged and just be seen. But it’s all in donation to the Rex Allen Museum.”
