Get set to feel like a rock star on Saturday, October 4th, when a larger than life Gibson Tour Bus rolls into town for the 4th Annual Guitars N' Cars Auto Show, Silent Auction & Reception, courtesy of one of the event sponsors, Fuller's Guitars. Show visitors will get a rare chance to get on board the exclusive bus, as well as experience the CertainTeed/Menards Chevrolet #27 NASCAR race car up close, another star of the show. The #88 CertainTeed NASCAR Racing Truck will feature alongside it, with show car driver on hand to answer questions. Guitars N' Cars is organized by local non-profit, Houston Construction Industry Charities and will take place on Saturday, October 4th at the Sam Houston Race Park, with proceeds once again benefiting U.S. VETS-Houston. Midtown Terrace is an apartment complex that serves as temporary housing for local veterans who would otherwise be homeless. The on-site kitchen was recently opened to not only serve food to Midtown Terrace residents, but also provide employment opportunities to some. Funds raised will help sustain the kitchen’s operating costs, as well as purchase a 12-15-person passenger van to aid veterans in their commute to work and other outings.

The event kicks off at noon on Saturday, October 4th with the Guitars N' Cars Auto Show, which is open to the public and runs until 5pm, showcasing American classics, exotics, hot rods, muscle machines and cars galore. It's a rain or shine, family-friendly gathering that also offers a kid zone with plenty of activities and live music. The Guitars N' Cars Silent Auction & Cocktail Reception, from 6-10 pm, is an adult-only celebration, with live music from Texas artist Hamilton Loomis, casino games, a display of for-sale guitars from Fuller’s Guitar, a silent auction and dinner and a line up of the "Top 40" finest motorcars.
