The 23rd Rockin’ on the River/River Run car show, an annual community activity and fundraiser for the Salvation Army, began Saturday’s Labor Day weekend activities at 10 a.m. on Vaughn Drive from Mill to Jefferson streets with an array of vehicles and their proud owners.

By 4 p.m. the car show participants had gathered in front of Bicentennial Park to find out who won the awards at the show. More than 50 awards were handed out.

The show included a range of vintage vehicles, from classic Corvettes to old Chevy trucks.

Shawn Chancy, from Shelbyville, Indiana, won best in show for his 1949 Chevy pickup outfitted with air-ride suspension, a six-liter fuel-injected engine and a custom frame.

Chancy said the truck was “junk” when he bought it, but he had spent the past year and a half bringing it back to life, doing all the restoration and metal work himself. Chancy won two car shows last year with the same truck, he said.
