CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KFVS) - The River City Rodders Car Club and Old Town Cape hosted their 43rd annual car show this weekend in Cape Girardeau.

“One of the things that’s significant is how long it’s been happening,” said River City Rodders Car Club’s Danny Essner a few days before the event. “We had our first car show in 1977. When I say we, I mean the River City Rodders Car Club. We actually were founded in 1977 and have had a car show every year since then.”

It’s called Manifolds on Main Street and featured hundreds of cars and trucks displayed along Main Street and in the downtown parking lot across from Big Sandy Superstore.

Trophies were awarded in 29 classes, with classes available for most vehicles from the 1900s through 2021.

“It’s an opportunity to check out a bunch of really old nice cars. It’s also an opportunity for local car enthusiasts to bring their cars out and show them off,” Essner said earlier in the week.

The event lasted until 4 p.m. and was free for the public.
