FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) - Sunday, July 17 saw a gathering of auto enthusiasts for a unique car event.

The 5th annual Cars With Character auto show invited members of the community with interesting and historic cars to show off their prized possessions, even if they aren’t necessarily in great condition.

Makes and models of all varieties were on display outside the Fox Den north of Fairbanks.

And while not all the cars being shown were able to run, their owners at least managed to get them there.

Erik Arthur brought his 1957 Chevrolet 210 Post, and explained, “We’ll clean the frame up, put the motor back together and maybe we’ll fire it up and drive it as is. We’ll put a window in it on the back end, obviously, but just clean it up and bit and see if it’ll drive.”

Meanwhile, Theresa Chase and Will Chase displayed their 1969 Chevrolet Camaro. “She’s got a lot of character. She’s maybe ugly on the inside, but she’s got a heart of gold,” Theresa said.

Will agreed, saying, “It’s just fun to see the different kind of cars, you know? Not all show cars, and they’re not all too bad, but it has a lot of variety.”
