LAS CRUCES -- The Fourth Annual Veterans Day Antique and Classic Car Show on Nov. 13 is expected to feature more than 100 vehicles, including antique automobiles, tractors and motorcycles at the New Mexico Veterans Center in Truth or Consequences.
"There were 109 participating vehicles last year, and at least that many are expected this year," said Mike Cook, coordinator of New Mexico State University's Rural Economic Development Through Tourism (REDTT) project. "If you like old cars, old tractors and old motorcycles, you'll want to attend."
REDTT is a project of NMSU's Cooperative Extension Service that promotes agriculture through tourism.
There also will be food booths and door prizes. The event is sponsored by the Southern New Mexico Roadrunners Auto Club and the Contemporary Historical Vehicle Association.
There is no charge to attend. Participants in the car show must pay $17.50 to enter a vehicle. Proceeds will benefit the New Mexico Veterans Center Activity Department and the Callahan Auto Museum in T or C.
