The Havasu Deuce Show attracted crowds Thursday afternoon for a classic car street display as the three-day event revved up for more activities in Lake Havasu City this weekend.
The event’s participants include car owners from all over the U.S. including states such as California, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, Arizona and North Dakota. The event predominantly features 1932 Fords and other automobiles that are at least as old as 1957.
Spectator Scott Ivers, of Medford, Ore., said he, too, is the owner of a 1932 Ford – alongside four other restored classic cars. Although his vehicles are tucked away back home as he enjoys Havasu’s warmer temperatures for a few months, the event has drawn him as well as fellow car enthusiasts from his neck of the woods.
“There are seven car owners from Southern Oregon here,” Ivers said. “I think this is great, I’ll be here all three days.”
Friday, the participants will take a garage tour centering on some of Havasu’s finest car collectors and local automotive industry heavy hitters. According to www.havasudeuces.com, the garage tour includes stops at the Dick Raczuk Car Collection and Machine Shop, George Sepulveda Museum, John Stimac 1932 Ford Clubhouse, Jim Meyer Enterprises, Premier Street Rods, and the Charlie Goad Car Collection.
Saturday, the Havasu Deuce Show begins at 8 a.m. at the Rotary Community Park ball fields. Admission is free to the public. For more information, visit www.havasudeuces.com.
The event is hosted by Koul Tools, Sam Nichols Electrical Inc., Frontline Graphics, and Boat Brokers, RVs & Classic Cars.
Proceeds benefit the Lake Havasu High School athletics programs in the form of scholarships.
