SUBLETTE – Owners of antique and unique vehicles can put them on display from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 9 at the Sublette Country Car Show in the heart of town along U.S. Route 52.

The annual show will again feature co-host Jerry Johnson’s extensive Kaiser-Frazer collection, in addition to Hudson, Nash, Willys-Overland, Chevys, and a variety of other vehicles.

All cars, trucks, motorcycles and tractors are invited. There is no judging, but participants are eligible for door prizes. The entry fee is $5 per vehicle.

There will be a 50-50 raffle, and food will be sold.

Donations to the Salvation Army will be accepted to see all the makes and models from throughout the decades.

Call Johnson at 847-987-2191 or Don Dinges at 815-713-5675 for more information about the car show.
