The members of Hardcore Car and Truck Club have been together since 1989, with a tragedy which transformed this club into a large, closely-knit family. For the past 11 years, Hardcore members have been putting on their annual car show in the memory of Larry Neal Oliver, a good friend and club member who was killed by thieves who stole his truck. The show keeps his memory alive and underscores how fragile life is. While there is a serious side, the show is also great fun with lots of crazy events that have become a Hardcore tradition. Changed from last year, the event is now a one-day, Saturday show that drew drivers from around the state. Many liked the fact that it was a one-day event and attendance was up 1/3 population over last year's event. The club has a questionnaire on their website, which asks you to determine their approach for next year, so take a moment and check it out.
