As the sun begins to set on the 38th annual Rolling 50s Classic Car show on South Broadway Sept. 10, the visitors and Rolling 50s club members tallied their votes for the Best of Show… a 1956 Pontiac Safari Wagon, owned by Carol Sakal of New Lebanon, Ohio.

Dozens more trophies were handed out to various category winners following the presentation of donations to local charities and the announcement of the 50/50 drawing winner, David George. Three charities – Cancer Association of Darke County, Shriners and Empowering Darke County Youth – were recipients of this year’s donations.

Awards followed a full day of visitors strolling up and down Broadway, from Annie Oakley Park to the Greenville Circle, checking out Chevys, Fords, Cadillacs, Pontiacs, Model Ts and much more. Many were listening and dancing to oldies music from such greats as Elvis Presley, Beach Boys, Ray Charles, The Supremes and more!

Despite gray skies and a 10-minute bout of rain, the show entertained hundreds of people from Greenville, Darke County and surrounding areas. The 1950s Hula Hoop craze was once again kept alive and well by two young ladies, one of whom had been operating her “hula hoop” non-stop for well over two and a half hours.
