Placerville’s Main Street will be closed to traffic but not to pre-1973 classic vehicles on Sunday, May 19.

The seventh annual Hangtown Car Show is rolling into town between Bedford Avenue and Sacramento Street.

The Placerville Lions Club presents this annual display of classic and unusual vehicles not only for the enjoyment of car fanciers but as a fundraiser for the Placerville Lions Community Fund.

The club has donated money raised from the entry fees to the El Dorado Center for the Visually Impaired, El Dorado County Food Bank and the Boys and Girls Club of El Dorado.

“We support the various non-profits in the area that do wonderful things in the community,” Mike Ocenosak, Lion and event coordinator, said.

“We’re about helping out those needs that are brought to our attention. There are so many needs in our community,” he said.

Registration for the car show is $30 per vehicle. Participants can sign up and drop off the fee at 601 Main St. in Placerville.

People who want to register their classic cars on Sunday need to go to the parking lot by Round Table Pizza, 512 Main St. Registration begins at 6:30 a.m. No cars will be admitted after 9 a.m.

Registered entrants can park their vehicles on Main Street on a first-come, first-served basis starting at 6:30 a.m.

Vehicle owners will be given goodie bags for each entry and a dash plaque will be provided by the Lions Club.

Some of the cars that will be displayed at the show are Chevrolets that include Camaros, shoebox cars and Cadillacs, according to Ocenosak.

“We have a lot of shoeboxes,” Ocenosak said.

Ford Model A and Model T and the 1932 Roadsters will be on display along with a Dodge Charger, Lincoln Zephyr V12 that was first built in 1932, Ocenosak noted.

There will be a good variety on display to spark memories.

“I’ve got a lot of trucks from the 1950s and Volkswagens,” Ocenosak said.

Main Street will be closed to public traffic during the car show from 6:30 a.m. to approximately 4 p.m. when the show cars depart.

There is no admission fee to enjoy the show.

During the car show DJ Norm Hammond will spin tunes from the 1980s and before.

The Lions Club will have a food booth selling hot dogs, soda and water, Ocenosak said. Many restaurants and shops on Main Street will be open during the car show.

Show awards are: Best Paint, Best Engine, Best Interior, Best Pre ’49 and Best Post ’48. Foreign cars will be allowed to enter the Best Pre ’49 category, Ocenosak said.

The awards are selected by a panel of judges, who are members of the Lions Club and merchants on Main Street. Winners must be present to claim their prize prior to the close of the event.

Ocenosak said there will be prize giveaways during the car show, near the Belltower. The prizes will be gift certificates from merchants on Main Street.

A 50/50 drawing will take place toward the end of the car show. The tickets will be sold throughout the day at the Belltower. The Lions Club will take half of its sales for its community funding account and the winner walks away with the other half of the pot.

For additional information about registration to show a car or the car show call Ocenosak at 530-622-1731 or e-mail at mikocen@yahoo.com.
