Autos At The Amphitheater Charity Show 12/3/17


     Autos At The Amphitheater Charity Show presented by Ridez For A Reason, was held on Sunday December 3, 2017. The Oak Mountain Amphitheater in Pelham, AL proved to be the perfect venue for the car show. The overall mission for the event, was to raise donations for Toys for Tots. The event featured arts and crafts, food, and live music. There was an excellent turnout with vehicles ranging from hot-rods to late model performance cars. There were close to 100 vehicles on display and over 300 spectators.

  Ridez for A Reason (is an Alabama based auto show group that holds auto shows for various charities, individuals and non-profit organizations.) Ridez for A Reason, along with participating car clubs and individuals helped bring in over 300+ toys and almost $500.00. All the donations went to the Santa’s Walker County Elves non profit organization. Ridez For A Reason has already planned next years event on December 2, 2018.

   Buddy Bowers of Springville, AL owns this slammed 1982 Chevrolet C10. It has an incredible street presence with its 20″ rims on the front, and 22″ rims tucked under the rear. This throw back Chevy is also packing a 383ci stroker!

Josh Baggett is the owner of this aggressive 2010 AMG C 63 Mercedes Benz. The car was recently on display at the 2017 SEMA show. The naturally aspirated 6.3L engine makes 650hp at the crank. This Bad Benz has clocked in 1/4 mile times as low as 10.7 seconds. Technically, this car is considered a sleeper, but can you really categorize any AMG as a sleeper?

   This 1961 Ford Galaxy Starliner was one of the cleanest classics at the event. This Starliner has a 390ci big block, two 4 barrel carburetors, and a 4 speed manual transmission.

   Michael Crapet’s 1934 Ford Phaeton showed a lot of holiday spirit with its Christmas decorations. Santa Clause wishes his slay was as cool as this classic street rod.

   This custom trike is powered by an air cooled VW flat-4 engine.

   This hot-rod was definitely one of the hottest cars at the event. It was packing some serious heat under the non existing hood.

   This gives a whole new meaning to the term “Monster Miata”.

   The import crowd had plenty of cool cars attending the event. It sure was nice going to a car show and seeing a plethora of different vehicles, makes, genres, and year models.

   Congratulations to The Birmingham Mopar Owners Club for winning the largest donation award.
