Kelledy honored at Shakers and Scrapers Car Show (updated to add complete results)

Corsicana — The 10th Annual Shakers and Scrapers Car club hosted its event along with Derrick Days festival Saturday.

This year the club dedicated the show to one of the club members who lost his life to cancer on Dec. 29. 2012, Kevin Kelledy.

“During his treatments at M.D. Anderson Hospital in Houston he saw children who were there for treatment like himself,” Kelledy’s wife Vickie said. “He understood why he was there, but could not understand why youngsters should have to go through the same kind of treatments. For Kevin, we are raising money to help support St. Jude's Medical Research Hospital, along with the victims of the recent explosion in West.”

Over 110 autos were entered in the contest not counting the club member's cars. Car buffs from Corsicana and surrounding cities turned out to join in the fun.

The trophies were made by Diane Billingsly of Purple Anvil Metal Works in Kerens and are designed like an oil derrick. Top 25 trophies along with six special awards were given. This was a participant judged event and Best of Show was called the Kevin Kelledy Award 2013.

Bill Green of Fairfield took home the top honor Best of Show Award for his 1955 Chevrolet Nomad.

“I have been to quite a few nice shows,” Green said. “This is always a good one. I enjoy coming out, I have met lots of nice folks and enjoy visiting with people.”

Vickie Kelledy presented the Best of Show Award in front of her late husband’s favorite car, a Ford Mustang.

“During Kevin’s illness he wanted to start selling cars to pay for treatments,” Vickie said. “I told him not to because I knew he enjoyed them, I told them everything was going to be all right because we have a huge support system. The Shakers and Scrapers are not just friends, they are family.”
