We are proud to announce a special guest and exciting cars to bring some new entertainment again this year.

Our special guest will be Gene Winfield, known as the "King of Customs" in the car world. He is an automotive customizer and fabricator and has built many famous movie cars such as Blade Runner and Robocop. He has toured the world appearing at major car shows and is looking forward to coming to Saskatoon.

As we get closer to the show we will determine the times that Gene will be doing signings and he will be touring and checking out the custom cars from our area that are displayed at the show.

When the vehicle line-up is completed for the show we will add more details as to the participants.

One of our feature highlights already committed is a beautiful 1970 Plymouth Roadrunner convertible from Saskatchewan. Depending on the source, there were either 3 or 4 Hemi Roadrunner convertibles made in 1970. The car was meticulously restored and received awards at the Chicago Muscle Car Show and Nationals and a 997 points (out of 1000) Concours rating.

All the fun you expect to see at the show is returning, like the Battle of the Technicians, free Hot Wheels for the first 1000 children both days, the Cool Car Corrral in the parking lot, great vendors from the western provinces and community and safety information booths. The children can bring their fastest Hot Wheesl car from home or use their new one from the show to race them on our Hot Wheels Track. Visit the SaskAbilities booth to purchase a ticket to win their "man-cave" coffee table or buy your car show shirt or mug.

The Saskatoon Antique Auto Club is holding their 2nd Annual Swap Meet on Saturday April 11th in the Hall B of Prairieland Park from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $5.00 and entry is through the north door of Hall B.






History of the Draggins Rod & Custom Car Club

Early in 1957 informal meetings started taking place regarding the forming of a car club in Saskatoon. Discussions revolved around what kind of a car club it should be and to choose a name. In the fall of 1957, after returning from their first car show in Edmonton, Alberta seven car enthusiasts formed a club to further their hobby.

On October 3rd, 1957, the first recorded meeting of the Draggins Car Club was held...
