Crusin' for a cause

Veronica Kibbee
Oct 4, 2008
Fall not only means cooler, crisp temperatures, but it's also the time for the 7th annual Cowtown Crusin' for a Cure car show, benefiting research and treatment for prostate cancer. This nonprofit event is held in historic downtown Fort Worth, Texas. Classic brick-lined streets and charming buildings make a perfect backdrop for such an awesome presentation. Cowtown Crusin' for a Cure is a wonderful show for an important cause, most certainly worth checking out. Admission is free for spectators and volunteers are always appreciated, so mark this on your calendar for 2009.
As in previous years, the show had an excellent turnout. Pristine cars and trucks, as well as rat rods, and custom creations lined the brick-paved streets. Todd Turnbull brought his gorgeous 1955 Chevrolet truck. With its eye-popping red paint, flawless interior, and awe-inspiring motor, Mr. Turnbull's classic definitely stole the show.

Another crowd favorite was the unique 1948 Henny-Packard ambulance, owned by Mark Wilson of Cleburn, Texas. It's one of few fully restored '48 Packard ambulances around today. This beast is a mind-boggling 23 ft long and weighs in at 6130 lb. 1961 marked its last year of service in Santa Rosa, New Mexico. Indeed, this is a great vehicle as well as an important historical memento.

Steve Rutledge brought his amazing 1977 Chevrolet Silverado. No details were overlooked when restoring this classic to its glory days. Its show-stopping square body was freshly painted in the style of the original scheme and rested on a slightly lower suspension, giving a sportier look to an old favorite.

The local sensation, Fort Worth National Band, added to the fun atmosphere with music for all ages. The organizers also offered spectators a chance to walk away with some extra spending money by providing a 50/50 cash drawing. All of this excitement was definitely enough to work up an appetite. Guests had the option of visiting some of Fort Worth's local restaurants along the square, as well as food vendors along the street, right in the heart of the car show.
Cowtown Crusin' for a Cure was once again a success. Thanks to medical staff volunteers, over 150 men were screened for prostate cancer. For more information about this event, as well as ways you can help the cause, please visit www.cowtowncruisinforacure.org.
