COLUMBUS, Ga. – More than 100 people are helping to build up a car culture in Columbus. AutoNation set the stage for all sorts of unique cars to compete for prizes in the Active Trend Fall Bash car, truck, and bike show.
A Ferrari, Porches, old-school Cadillacs, muscle cars and more littered the parking lot off North Lake Drive. Organizer Bayardo Reyes says people from all over the state came to show off their souped-up rides. Reyes hopes to one day put Columbus on the map when it comes to supporting car enthusiasts.
“We have had a car culture here in Columbus,” Reyes said. “But it’s slowly here and there with no guidance. I’ve been around cars for awhile. I’m trying to provide a little guidance, like what a car show is in a safe environment.”
Reyes says all the proceeds from the car show will go toward Toys for Tots. Car show volunteers also collected toys to be donated for children in need.
