Car Club president O.B. Foster said the club is expecting between 300 and 400 cars to be a part of the Annual Show. That includes car show regulars who frequently come to the downtown Elizabethton show and additional visitors from places such as North Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, South Carolina and around the region.

“Any given Saturday we have around 200 cars in downtown,” Foster said. “It will be packed this Saturday.”

This is the club’s first year back in downtown Elizabethton after hosting the annual show at Borla Industries for a few years. Foster said the move is likely to be a permanent one.
