MERRIMACK, N.H. (July 19, 2007) – Whether rain or shine, car enthusiasts will display hundreds of classic, dragster and muscle cars in the 34th Show N’ Shine Car Show on Sunday, Aug. 5, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Anheuser-Busch brewery in Merrimack.
In 2006, more than 10,000 people visited the show and 649 cars were exhibited. The event is presented by the New Hampshire Street Rod Association and will benefit Make-A-Wish Foundation in New Hampshire.
“At last year’s show, Make-A-Wish collected $15,218 in donations,” said Pete Cotnoir, coordinator for the Merrimack car show. “It was enough money to fully fund the wishes of four very special children.”
