It was a big car show, with an even bigger cause.
The 14th annual Endless Summer Car Show brought in crowds from all over the Tri-States to support the veterans.
The Tri-State Lugnuts hosted this car show at the Illinois Veterans Home in Quincy and 178 participants cruised into the competition.
Visitors could see vehicles ranging from the 1920s to present models as well as dump trucks, pick-up trucks and motorcycles.
Tom Phelps, the president of Tri-State Lugnuts was pleased with the event.
"I think the venue itself is really nice. Everybody always compliments us on that. Being able to come out here, park in the shade, in the trees. And I think everybody really likes being able to support the veterans, which all the proceeds from this goes directly to the veterans activity fund. We have some great vendors, some great prizes that we give away, and some great food out here too," Phelps said.
Over the past 13 years, the Tri-State Lugnuts have donated over 70 thousand dollars to the veterans activity fund at the veteran's home.
