Golden Oldies Car Show winners

GOOD AND GOLDEN – The Golden Oldies Car Show featured 46 different classics on Sept. 25 at the St. Charles Area Park, despite the cold and wind. “I think the show itself went pretty well,” said organizer Jay Gardner. “The people who brought cars seemed to enjoy it and there was a fair number of spectators walking around looking at the cars.” Along with all the cars, the event featured music, inflatables, disc golf and a 5K run.
