New format for RevMasters Bentley car show

August 2012 was the RevMasters’ Car Club’s 15th show and this year the format for the Bentley Kroozin’ West Show & Shine was different.

August 2012 was the RevMasters’ Car Club’s 15th show and this year the format for the Bentley Kroozin’ West Show & Shine was different. The Top Twelve were picked, meaning there were no specific class winners and no judges were needed.

“Most shows have gone to this format,” stated organizer Rick Park.

Out of 107 entries, down from last year perhaps because there were two other car shows on the same weekend in central Alberta.

Chosen Best In Show by the hosting committee was the 1957 Chev 210 wagon of Frances Evans from Altario, who was one of the Top Twelve.

Other Top Twelve winners included the 1940 Willys Jeep of Barry Cunningham of Bentley, the 1968 Ford Mustang of Kent Vanlderstine of Cochrane, Roger Sherba from Rocky Mountain House’s 1978 Ford Ranger XLT, John Schafer from Rimbey’s 1958 Half Ton step side, Red Deer’s Wendy Park Ramage 1948 Chev, Lacombe’s Lloyd & Kathy Goetz 1938 Ford Tudor, Red Deer’s Dana O’Connor 1927 Ford Model T touring, as well as Calvin Traub’s 1967 Ford Mustang GT 500 from Calgary, Randy Prediger’s 1967 Firebird from Sylvan Lake, Leona & Devin Swainson’s 1950 Mark V Jaguar from Red Deer, and the 1970 Chev CST of Bill Bailey from Red Deer.

People’s Choice went to Bentley’s Dan Johnson’s 1969 Plymouth Road Runner.

The Mayor’s Choice was Bert Cuttiss’ 1931 Ford (Phaeton) from Crossfield.

Best Bike was Greg Beavis’ 2007 Harley Ultra Classic and Best Tractor went to Justin Peterson’s 1953 Massey 55 (Western). Both these entrants were from Bentley.

The contestant who came from the furthest away was Billie Mahony from North Battleford with his 2011 Camaro SS.

Club organizers also co-ordinated the Saturday night fireworks which cost $5,300. Many donors, including the Bentley Ag Society and the RevMasters Car Club themselves, donated towards the fireworks fund to put on a show for all to enjoy.

There were lots of loyal volunteers, committee members, fans, and participants that helped make the event so great.

From the profit this year the club plans to donate to Ronald McDonald House in Red Deer, to the Bentley Community Church blessing pantry, and will again put some funding aside for next year’s fireworks.
