The best collection of classic, antique
and special interest cars trucks and motorcycles
in East Texas!
February 14 - 16
At Harvey Convention Center in Tyler
All proceeds benefit the East Texas Crisis Center
The 2014 East Texas Auto & Cycle Show benefiting the East Texas Crisis Center is scheduled for February 14-16 at Harvey Convention Center in Tyler. This annual show will feature antique, vintage, classic and special interest cars, trucks and motorcycles. Each year the show features a special collection of cars and this year’s collection will be a tribute to the 50th Anniversary of the Mustang. This year’s featured collection spans five decades and will include a 1964 ½ Mustang Convertible that has recently been restored by the members of the Mustangs of East Texas.
One of the “By Special Invitation” cars will be the 1965 Aston Martin DB5. Although silver DB5’s are perhaps best known for their appearance in early James Bond films “Goldfinger” and “Thunderball”, this particular car is a celebrity on its own. This DB5 was delivered to George Harrison of Beatle’s fame brand new on January 1, 1965.
The show brings in vehicles of all makes, from every decade, some very rare, some from car enthusiasts who own vast collections of cars and some from those who have owned or purchased the one “dream car” from their youth. One of the first cars to enter the 2014 show is a 1964 Plymouth Sport Fury owned since high school by one person and completely restored eight year’s ago.
This year we have even more Entertainment for Kids and Adults.
Matt and Megan Magill will provide rock and roll along with classic country music with renditions of Bob Wills and Johnny Cash on Saturday. On Sunday the Tyler All-Star Band will entertain with their own special brand of 60’s rock and roll. In addition, this year entertainment will also include a slot car race track for children of all ages.
This year’s raffle car is a 1966 Mustang Convertible, white with black top and red Pony interior. The factory Mustang with a GT package boasts a 289 HP motor, is automatic, has after-market air-conditioning and the original motor odometer reads 55,000 miles. The vintage Mustang has been donated by Tyler Ford. This is the eleventh consecutive year that Tyler Ford has donated the raffle car to the East Texas Crisis Center to help fund services for victims of family violence and sexual assault. Raffle tickets sell for $10 and can be purchased online, at the Tyler Ford Dealership, Quick Lane Tire & Auto Center, ABC Auto, and Traditions Restaurant. The drawing for the winning ticket will take place Sunday, February 16th at the closing of the 2014 East Texas Auto & Cycle Show at 4:30 p.m. at Harvey Convention Center in Tyler, Texas.
