Classic European cars will take to downtown Sand Springs for the eighth-annual Euro-Expo Car show.
The show, hosted by the Jaguar Club of Tulsa, will run June 22 and 23 downtown and benefit the Sand Springs Animal Shelter. The event will reportedly start with a tailgate party at 6:30 p.m. June 22. The cars will be placed at 8:30 a.m. June 23, judging will begin at 10:30 a.m., cars will be out until about 2 p.m. and the event will conclude with a banquet from 7 to 9 p.m. at St. Matthews Episcopal Church.
Jaguar Club of Tulsa President Clark Frayser said the car show will feature British and European cars, including Saab, Volvo, Mercedes and, of course, Jaguars.
“We’re kind of expecting some exotic (cars) this year,” Frayser said. “We’ll have a 1933 Plymouth racer…built during World War II after hours…it’s been in a museum for 20 years…now, it’s being raced.”
He said a 1928 Bentley won the top prize last year when the show raised $815 for the animal shelter.
“The Sand Springs community really opened their arms,” Frayser said. “Sand Springs is just a really good fit.”
He said pretty much every part of the show, including the trophies, is acquired locally.
