Brian Herold, owner of Topline Engine Repair in New England, brought a new event to the Wheat Harvest Jamboree this year with a first-ever All Wheels Car Show.
The All Wheels Car Show brought a variety of vehicles from old tractors, to classic cars, even an old Army Jeep. Herold, who fixes an assortment of different vehicles every day, came up with the idea of an All Wheels Show because of the variety and the uniqueness of what the show could bring.
“Everybody goes to car shows, or bike shows, or tractor fests. Since everybody has different stuff, this is a show for everyone to enjoy,” Herold said.
Herold advertised around Southwest North Dakota, and had 33 entries total. There were only three local entries with the rest of the entries being from out of town. The farthest entry came as far as Bismarck to be in the show.
Herold along with volunteers spent two nights cleaning up the Riverside Park to get ready for the event. The crew spent the evenings cutting down dead tree branches, and picking up garbage and branches. The branches were piled up and used for the bonfire later on that evening.
During the show spectators were asked to vote for their favorite entry. Fran Martin from Lefor won the People’s Choice Award with his 1939 Coupe entry. Allen Schmidt from New England was points away from winning the People’s Choice award with a Massey Ferguson Tractor entry.
After the Car Show, there was music and a barbecue followed by a bonfire.
“It was a pretty good turnout,” Herold said. “I had good help getting it ready and running it. As of now we are planning on doing it again.”
