NSGL 1st Class Petty Officer Association hosts car show
On Sept. 15, Naval Station Great Lakes First Class Petty Officer Association held a NSGL car show at Burkey Mall. Hundreds were in attendance to catch a glimpse of modified cars and dragsters. The show was the brainchild of OS3 Brittany Colon.
Participants were charged $15 to display a ride. The show was not limited to just cars; there were motorcycles as well as trucks. There was even a visit from the 1965 Chrysler Imperial used in the Green Hornet movie courtesy of the Volo Auto Museum.
Locals as well as residents of Kenosha and Racine came down to support the First Class P.O. association with cars ranging from a drag modified 1969 Mercury Comet to a 2006 Chevrolet Corvette. Participants enjoyed gorgeous weather while trading their restoration or modification stories.
Cars were scored on exterior and interior cleanliness, class and style. Judges were NSGL commanding officer Capt. Randy Lynch and executive officer Cmdr. Robert Sullivan.
After the votes were tallied, John Hines of North Chicago and his 1938 Ford standard coupe took first place. The 1938 Ford sported a custom paint and interior with a 4.6L DOHC Mustang Cobra engine. Hines took home a Buffalo Wild Wings gift pack for his effort.
In addition to the vehicles, there were numerous children’s activities, including balloon animals, face painting and temporary tattoos.
