SPARKING childhood memories

lassic music playing, classic cars lining the street, exhaust fumes in the air, people milling around. Those sights and sounds all turn downtown Hooker’s Glaydas Avenue into Memory Lane once a year. What started as 30 cars from a local car club in 2006 has blossomed into 200-plus


cars in 2015. Daniel McCann, a mechanical technician at Tri-County Electric Cooperative


(TCEC), has entered his 1961 Cushman Silver Eagle Scooter in the Hooker Car Show for six years. The turquoise and cream scooter won Best of Show in the Motorcycle division in 2015. He’s looking forward to participating in the 10th anniversary of the show on Saturday, Sept. 10, in downtown Hooker. “I like everything about the car show,” McCann said. “It brings back old mem- ories to look at the classic cars restored back to their original condition. It’s good to see a lot of vehicles from the time I was growing up.” McCann said he has had the Cushman scooter for about 18 years. He bought it because it reminded him of one he had in junior high and because his sons wanted one. The scooter is original and he has no plans to restore it. The car show also brings back memories for TCEC member Mark Davis. His restored charcoal and black 1967 Mustang Fastback was a winner in the first Hooker Car Show. His dad bought him the car when he was 12 and they worked to restore it together. Today, Davis helps organize the show and emcees the entire day. While he no longer enters the show himself, he enjoys the busy event. “I got involved with the car show because I have a love of cars from working with my dad on mine,” Davis said. “The car show also gives this town something to get behind. It’s neat to see all the people who get involved and add something to it.” TCEC member Linda Martin leads the committee to organize the car show


each year. Along with her husband Kent on the committee are Mark Davis, Steve Walton, Doug Toombs and Dennis and Julie Martin. Linda Martin said the event started in 2006 as a way to attract people to downtown Hooker. “Now it’s become a destination for a lot of the families who come every year,” Martin said. “It’s been a lot of fun. While it’s a huge amount of work, it’s worth it.”
