Antique vehicles from a 200-mile radius will be in Corinth come Saturday.

The spit-shinned automobiles will be part of the 45th Annual Magnolia Antique Car Club Show at Refreshments, Inc. lot across from the Corinth Gas & Water Department.

"We had 135 cars with most having two or more people last year," said club president Rick Kelley. "We are also close enough to downtown for our visitors to shop and take in the Green Market."

The non-profit organization is the oldest car club in the state dedicated to the restoration and preservation of antique automobiles.

"It's not a requirement to own an antique automobile to be a member, you just have to be interested," said the president.

The car show is set for 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. with cash prices awarded throughout the day. A grand prize of $500 is set to handed out at the 2 p.m. drawing. Entry fee for the show is $20.

Magnolia Antique Car Club, currently with around 100 members, was organized on August 22, 1967.

"We try to help as many charitable causes as possible and spread the goodwill about Corinth in our travels," said Kelley.

The club's primary donation to charity is the Amen Food Pantry. In the past, the club has helped area churches and other charities to raise money.

Every fourth Sunday March through October, the club also puts together a cruise-in at Arby's from 1-4 p.m.
