"The car show has been going on in downtown Cambridge, this is our 28th year. It keeps growing year, after year, after year. We average anywhere from 250 to 290 cars "

More than 100 awards were given out Saturday afternoon. The judges looked for possible flaws in the car as well as  overall cleanliness. Cars were placed in categories such as  modified, stock, special interest and by year, then ranked on a scale from one to ten.  The honor of best of show overall today was awarded to  Mark and Karen Fowler of Cambridge.

In addition to bringing cool cars to the streets of town, the show brings around 5,000 people downtown for the weekend, helping to stimulate their local economy.
