For the 47th consecutive year, the KCRG TV9 Presents the O’Reilly Auto Parts Rod & Custom Car Show brightens up the Midwest winter with an impressive lineup of vintage and custom vehicles Feb. 27-28 in Monticello, IA. The family friendly show will feature a new selection, including some never-seen-before street rods, custom cars, street machines, hot pickups, race cars and custom motorcycles.

Featured celebrity this year will be popular TV star Erik Estrada, “Ponch,” from the hit series “CHiPs” which ran on NBC from 1977 to 1983. Prior to his breakout television success, the popular actor had a number of film roles. In more recent years, he appeared in reality television shows and infomercials and was featured in the touring company of “Grease.” He’s also stepped behind the camera to direct a number of independent films. He is married and lives in California.

This affordable winter family fun event once again will be held at the Monticello Berndes Center, 766 North Maple Street in Monticello, only 35 miles from Cedar Rapids or Dubuque on U.S. Highway 151.

Official entries compete for cash awards from Citizens State Bank and Hupy and Abraham trophies.
