Abaco had its first auto show on May 25 attracting a few classic and new vehicles as well as a bevy of motorcycles displaying for auto aficionados to admire.

The show, organized by Don Wood, is the beginning of what is hoped to be an annual event in Abaco and an outlet for auto enthusiasts to see and show off their vehicles.

Mr. Wood, proud owner of a 68 Corvette Stingray convertible for 45 years, said despite only a few cars showing up it was a success that he will build on in the future. Joining his 68 Corvette at the event was a 66 Mustang, a 2008 Mustang, A Dodge Ram Truck and a Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Coming out in support of the event were members of the Scurvy Few Motorcycle Club who were joined by several motorcyclists from Nassau. The motorcycles were predominantly Harley Davidsons but there were also Hondas, Kawasakis and Yamahas.

There was music and refreshments provided at the event with grilled hotdogs and hamburgers prepared for guests as Island Waves Creative Community Centre assisted with the event.

Mr. Wood says he plans to do it a bit earlier next year possibly in February when it is not so hot and he looks forward to even more persons joining in the fun!
