Avid antique car fans and clubs brought out their best, favorite, and vehicles in progress to compete,  be seen and admired Friday in the Nebraskaland Days car show at Memorial Park.

The car show isn’t just a competition for the best and brightest. The public is encouraged to vote on their favorite car but a lot of folks come to relive times in their lives that were fun, innocent, or necessary.

Yvonna Hedgecok and Maynard Zipf are examples. They brought a 1934 Model A that has been in Yvonne’s family better than 60 years. She used it on dates when she was 16 and it had to be borrowed from her uncle, because her boyfriend at the time didn’t have a car. 

When she had an opportunity to own the car again, she went back to Portland, Ore. to bring it back and restore it. She and Maynard brought it back on a trailer pulled by Mobile home.

Donna and Gary Gienhagen inherited a car after Donna’s mom passed away. The 1926 Ford Model T Speedster body came from a car museum in South Carolina; they did the work on the engine.

Donna and Gary like to use this car the cruise around Kearney and in parades. Its top speed is 40 miles an hour, and the single round windshield is for the driver only.

Donna Hernandez always wanted a Mustang but as a young married couple knows, some times needs outweigh the wants.

Donna got a second chance and became the proud owner of an original 40th Anniversary Edition 2004 Mustang, mint condition. The special edition model only came out in three colors -- white (which she owns) black and red. Her granddaughter Harlie has laid claim this car by saying simply “It’s going to be mine.”
