Over 165 classic cars and unique vehicles were on display for Johnson College’s Cars on Campus on September 9, 2012. The event, presented by Manasek Auto Parts, Inc., raised a record $7,825.87 for the Cars on Campus Scholarship Fund, far exceeding the $5,000 goal!
Hundreds of car lovers, students, alumni, and community friends visited campus to enjoy the sights of the remarkable automobiles, the sounds of DJ Conor McGuigan, and the tastes of some delicious refreshments.
Awards were given out in a number of categories. Big winners included Tom Millard’s 1955 Brockway, which won the 2012 Best in Show Award, and George Caswell’s Cadillac Limousine, which took home this year’s President’s Pick Award.
Rudi Dickinson ‘11, who was instrumental in reviving the College’s car show three years ago after a five year hiatus, shares, “It’s great to give back to the College which has given me the skills to pursue a successful life. My hope is that the Cars on Campus Scholarship gives others the same opportunities.”
