October 19th, 2013 Car Show Photos - 28th Annual Mississippi On Wheels Charity Car Show - New Albany, Mississippi


This year they had 157 registered entries - it would’ve been more but it was overcast most of the day with a slight chance of rain.  There was construction going on in the lot across from the courthouse, so they had the cars parked all around the courthouse square and down the hill behind another bank across the street.  Here are a few photos of some cars that weren’t wedged in too tightly.  Besides my ’87 442, the ’70 Rallye 350 and ’78 Cutlass from the October, 2007 page were there.  The Rallye 350 won a 2nd Place trophy in the 1970 - 1975 Production Cars class, and the ’78 Cutlass received a 1st Place award in the 1973 - 1984 Modified Cars class.


Here’s a 1954 Chevy Corvette owned by Michael Hill of Oxford, Mississippi.


Herb Honeycutt of Memphis, Tennessee owns this 1950 Ford Convertible.  He got a 1st Place trophy in the 1949 - 1954 Production Cars class.

This 1969 Chevy Pickup is owned by Billy Phillips of Iuka, Mississippi.

A 1964 Plymouth Fury owned by Bud Bryson of New Albany, Mississippi.

Philip Taylor of Tupelo, Mississippi was showing this nice 1955 Chevy Bel Air.



This 1965 Chevy Corvette is owned by Hugh Tate of New Albany, Mississippi.

A 1971 Olds Cutlass Supreme owned by John Hobson of Lamar, Mississippi.  (I’ll refrain from making any disparaging comments about the rims.)

This 1937 Chevy Street Rod is owned by Debbie Elliott of Blue Mountain, Mississippi.


This gorgeous 1949 Chevy Pickup is owned by Richard Munn of Olive Branch, Mississippi.

Here’s a 1970 Chevy Chevelle owned by Jerry Palmer of Tupelo, Mississippi.




A stunning 1972 Olds 442 owned by Otha Phillips of Memphis, Tennessee.  This car received the only 1st Place trophy in the 1970 - 1975 Production Cars class, and he also won Best of Show.  I spent a lot of time drooling over this beauty. 


My 1987 Olds 442 received the only 1st Place trophy in the 1976 - 1995 Production Cars class.  Two others tied for 3rd and two tied for 2nd.  Let’s hear it for the orphans.
