More than 60 classic cars showed up to the first weekly Baden car show Wednesday night. The event, organized by Ron Weber brought out cars from across the region to the parking lot at Tim Hortons in Baden.
Weber said a lot of classic car collectors like to bring their cars out to a different show each night of the week during the summer. After realizing that Wednesdays were an empty night, Weber decided to put together the Baded event, which brought out more cars than he expected.
The weekly show runs again next Wednesday from 6 to 8:30 p.m. and through the summer. The Aug. 25 show will be pushed to Saturday, Aug. 28 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. With a full lot the first week, Weber suggests showing up early to snag a spot from now on.
