Shakers and Scrapers Car Show enjoys nice weather, big turnout

Proceeds to benefit the Corsicana Animal Shelter

Corsicana — The 11th Annual Shakers and Scrapers Car Show went off without a hitch Saturday thanks to the leadership of new event organizers Mustang Sally Productions (MSP).

The show was held once again at 500 North Beaton, the site of the old Stewart Motor Company. Proceeds went to benefit the City of Corsicana Animal Shelter.

A raffle drawing was held and prizes were given away before the awards were announced. Plaques were given to the top 25 vehicles which included cars, trucks and motorcycles. Large trophies were presented for Best Interior, Best Engine, Best Paint, Best of Show, The Chief of Police Award and The Shakers and Scrapers pick.

The event was emceed by MSP owner/producer Dan Herod.

“This was my first year to produce the Shakers and Scrapers car show,” Herod said. “It is one of the most outstanding clubs I have worked with and I’ve worked with a lot.”

Herod, who puts on around 40 to 45 classic and antique car shows a year, was pleased with his Derrick Days experience.

“I have met a tremendous mix of folks and have seen some nice cars, trucks and bikes, The Shakers and Scrapers love anything on wheels. They are good folks who give back to the community.”

Over 90 entries were registered in the contest not counting the club member’s cars, and car enthusiasts from around the state showed up to compete.

Don Silaff of Nevada, Texas won the Shakers and Scrapers "Best of Best" award for his 1937 Ford Street Rod. This was Silaff’s first year to enter the Derrick Days competition.

“This is the only car I show,” Silaff said. “I do drive this car, people think I put it on a trailer but I have a grill guard and seat covers and drive it to shows.”

Rick Iglehart of Waco won the Best of Show award for his 1950 Mercury Coupe.

Shakers and Scrapers club member Dan Summerall was pleased with this year’s show.

“This was the first year to use MSP and they did a great job,” Summerall said. “They made our work a lot easier, thanks to Dan Herod and his wife Diane. We had a good year with no rain and a full parking lot.”

Individual award winners were:

Best Interior: Mark Barnes of Corsicana for his 1934 Ford

Best Engine: Darryll Moore of Ft. Worth for his 1939 Chevy Sedan

Best Paint: Bruce Bailes of Corsicana for his 1950 Mercy Coupe.

  • 3-26-14 Expo Commercial heifers.jpg Curl wins first leg of Commercial Heifers

    Caleb Curl, 13, of Frost FFA, won grand champion of the commercial heifer show, the first leg of the commercial heifer overall prizes. Unlike a lot of the other animal categories, commercial heifers aren't show-things with smooth coats and stardust on their hooves. They're straight out of the pasture, a bit muddy and certainly not the lady-like, pampered creatures that will be led around the ring in the registered heifer show.

  • 11-21-13 Annie.jpg ‘Annie Get Your Gun’ through Sunday at the Palace

    It’s the big musical, the one that makes me think of ‘cast of thousands,’ or in our case, dozens at least, and it’s here only for a few short days. ‘Annie Get Your Gun,’ is Irving Berlin’s candy box treasure of a play about Annie Oakley, the sharpshooter in love with a showman.
    It’s presented by the Warehouse Living Arts Center but because of its size is on stage at the Palace Theatre. Shows will be at 7:30 p.m. tonight, Friday and Saturday, with a 2 p.m. Sunday matinee.
