“My adrenaline races when I see the cars start coming in,” says Jack Stinson, Jr. “I love visiting with all the different people about their cars. I think it’s very exciting how much the festival has grown … we’ve been able to do so much more with it with the sponsors’ involvement. It’s a neat community project to do together. For the quality of the cars, I think this is a top festival. It’s a step above your average car show,” he said.

Stinson, owner of Stinson Building Company, got involved with the festival with his father, Jack Stinson, Sr. Both Stinsons have a passion for classic cars. Senior has a 1942 Ford Coupe while Junior has a 1971 Pontiac Le Mans convertible and a 1969 Chevy C-10 pickup. Jack and Tammy organized the car show every year until 2023, and Tammy started the Women’s World Expo in 2019. Both will serve as grand marshals for the 2023 Birthplace of Route 66 Parade this year with Jack driving the Pontiac Le Man
