Eddy's 11th Annual Car Show employs 'The Force'


Wolfgang Kurtz | The Seward Phoenix LOG

Eddy presents Bill and Susan Holm from Anchorage with the trophy for the epitome of excellence, Best in Show, for their 1972 blue Dodge Charger.

The 11th annual Eddy’s Car Show, a rain or shine event, got off to a slow start with Saturday’s morning drizzle, but as contestants and oglers drifted into the Bear Creek RV Park, the weather lifted as if by a conjuror’s trick. The sci-fi theme brought out costumed participants and thundering movie scores from DJ Thomas Moore as judges and thrill seekers perused the array of classic and modern vehicles. Then the judging began.

The award for the best use of the science fiction theme went to Chris Blankenship of Anchorage for his Minimum Overdrive VW Thing. The trophy for the epitome of excellence, Best in Show, went to a 1972 blue Dodge Charger owned by Bill and Susan Holm from Anchorage. By the end of the afternoon when all of the trophies had been awarded, no one could claim that Eddy and Kelly Shittenhelm didn’t host an epic car show.

So say we all.
