he only problem at the ninth annual Kiwanis car show, held Sunday outside the NCH Healthcare Center, was knowing where to look. At every turn of the head, more vintage vehicles, and some nice new ones, demanded attention.
Thousands paid $5 to inspect the 182 cars entered in the show, everything from Grant Miller’s 1934 Packard with it’s “Goddess of Speed” hood ornament, to Bill Filbin’s 2011 Corvette Grand Sport with a mirrored underside of the hood, the better to view the engine.
