A total of 42 cars, trucks, tractors and motorcycles were shown at the inaugural South Franklin Car Show in Wisner June 15.

Car enthusiasts filled the streets of Wisner as they inspected vehicles ranging from the Model A to a recent Ford Mustang. 

“I am very pleased with the turnout at the South Franklin Car Show,” said Wisner Mayor Marc McCarty. “This event would not be possible without all the volunteers that lended a hand and worked so hard to put this event on.”

Those who attended the event were also treated with food vendor booths that lined Fort Scott Street and an obstacle course and jumping house.

“This will be an annual event for Wisner,” McCarty said. “This year was great, but next year this event will be bigger and better.”
