JOPLIN, MO.--Area residents show off their wheels for a good cause.
More than 90 cars from across the Four States participated in the car show at Landreth Park this afternoon. Hundreds of area residents came to check out the different makes and models that were on display. Each person that participated in the car show paid $10- $15 dollars.
All of the money goes towards the Joplin Habitat for Humanity.
Joplin Resident Tony Belk says,
"Since we had so many volunteers help us clean up and stuff, we just wanted to do our part to help get money to come in to help more homes being built."
I'm very surprised in the turnout..a lot more cars here..there are several other shows in the area-places they could be, but they've come out to support this,"says Rick Holden the Car Show Judge.
Organizers say this is the first year the annual route 66 event was held in Joplin.
