(Neb.)-Fur Trade Car Show Sees Record Number Of Entries
(Chadron)-The annual Fur Trade Days car show was a bigger hit this year than in years past, and one of the organizers said he believes it was location, location, location! This year, the show was held at Wilson Park instead of downtown Chadron, and Ken Korte said he estimated there were almost double the entries as have been seen in other years.
The 107 entries in the show were spread around the upper loop of Wilson Park, with classic rock ‘n roll music playing and a food vendor, that Korte said sold out by the end of the day. Entries were received from all over the area with many different automobiles for people to enjoy. The winners were selected after tabulating ballots from those who entered the show, with nine different categories.
Best of Show was awarded to Robert Aberle from Rapid City, SD. His entry was a 1936 International Pickup. There were many other classics as well as other newer vehicles. In each category, there were two winners selected from the pool of entries.
