|Written by Kyle Arnoldy|
Fifty-six vehicles made up this year’s 14th annual Dandelion Daze car show Saturday, June 14, making it one of the biggest turnouts for the event in a decade.
The weather was warm with a slight breeze during the day as car owners made sure their vehicles were clean, polished and ready to put on display at the Show and Shine. For at least 18 of the vehicles, this was their first appearance at the Dandelion Daze car show.
For the second year in a row, Hank Hassler’s 1970 Dodge Challenger took home the People’s Choice award. Earning the Top Gun award was Lyle Brown of Stratton, Neb., with his 1959 Chevrolet Apache.
The top 15 cars were also awarded plaques. Those earning recognition, listed in no particular order, are:
Jim and Vickie Pletcher, 1969 Chevrolet Camaro; Jim Coghill, 1956 Chevrolet; Gumaro Bencomo, 1923 T-Bucket; Randy Lefquist, 1938 Chevrolet; Jeff and Judy Bulkheimer, 1970 Dodge Challenger.
Earl Rosenberg, 1970 Plymouth Barracuda; Steve and Cindy Vierow, 1934 Ford; Dennis Varra, 1967 Chevrolet Camaro; Marvin Nelson, 1942 Ford; Brian and Erica Hager, 1965 GTO.
