CS)--Enid Antique Car Club and Cimarron Council, Boy Scouts of America will host the annual Boy Scouts of America Car Show, 10:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Saturday, March 30 at the Garfield County Fairgrounds. Enid Antique Car Club has hosted the car show to benefit Scouting for five years, raising funds to support Cimarron Council Scouts. Bud Smith, who has served as president of both organizations, said the centerpiece of the show is a 1918 Geronimo, restored by the car club around 1970 after it was discovered in a field in Kansas. The Geronimo is believed to be the last in existence of 628 cars produced in Enid between 1917 and 1920, when a fire destroyed the Geronimo production plant in downtown Enid, causing the company to go out of business. Also on display this year will be a 1916 Monroe, believed to be one of 14 remaining Monroes. In addition to the Geronimo and Monroe, attendees can expect upward of 100 cars at the show, representing stock production antiques and classics alongside customized vehicles, hot rods and rat rods. In addition to touring the cars, attendees will be treated to music from the 1950s and '60s, a hamburger lunch and free homemade cobbler. Cost for the hamburger lunch is $5 and includes chips and a drink. Admission to the car show is free. All proceeds from the raffle and lunch go to support Scouting.
