KARZ Rod Run and Show Saturday

Main Street in downtown historic Sheridan was the place to be if you like classic cars. Saturday was the KARZ Rod Run and Show and Sheridan Media's Judy Hagerott brings us this story.


It was nothing but cars, fancy cars parked up and down Main Street on Saturday. We're not talking about your ordinary, every day go-to-work or the grocery store family kind of car. These were something special all shined up and pretty classics, hot rods, trucks and muscle cars. There were plenty of guys and gals drooling over these babies.

It was the annual KARZ Rod Run and Show and Bob Gates, president of the local car club explains what was going on.

Now, you might just have to have the income of Bill Gates to show off some of these cars. Just the paint jobs alone on some of these beauties cost in the tens of thousands of dollars.

Duane Demars has been a farmer for most of his life in central Montana. He was there showing off his 1950 Chevy. He says he tried to keep it “old school.”

Demars shared this 1950's tidbit about spotlights.

That's a new one to me. Going to car shows is Demars and his wife's idea of a date night.

He says car shows are family friendly.

Bob Gates says there's a lot of pride that goes along with car shows.

Demars was telling us about an old Fiat he picked up for $400. Truth be known, he hadn't told his wife about his new project. His philosophy...”It's easier to ask for forgiveness than to ask for permission.” Here's hoping Demar's wife hasn't heard about his new Fiat or his philosophy.
