Young Life organizers are still tabulating the amount of money raised through attendees’ votes for their favorite autos and the car wash by group members, though funds will go toward the organization’s work providing area teens the chance to attend youth camps.

The selection for Best of Show was a 1961 Volkswagen Beetle with a custom front engine belonging to Gary and Kathee Thompson. Winner of Young Life Choice, which will be featured on next year’s merchandise, is a 1937 Ford pickup owned by Doug Schneider.
