Kalevala car show draws a big crowd

More than 60 vehicles drove in for the "Bring What You Got" car get-together at the Kalevala Cultural Center Sunday near Kettle River.

"It was awesome," commented Sam Huhta, one of the event organizers.

Car styles ranged from classic, rat, antique, unique, hot rods and dragsters, among others. The event drew at least 125 area people to present and admire.

Locals Dean Johnson, John Gran and Huhta were the spark plugs for the event. There was no official judging, people were asked to bring a chair or two, and the site was promoted as having lots of parking for cars and spectators.
