East Texas Auto and Cycle Show Kicks Off

Next week more than 100 cars and motorcycles will be cruisin' into Tyler for the East Texas Auto and Cycle show.  It's one of the most popular fundraising events in our area, drawing thousands of spectators each year.   

This morning, Tyler got to see some of the street rods, custom cars and trucks that will be featured in the show. The automobiles and their drivers met downtown and then drove down South Broadway to kick off the event. The show, which benefits the East Texas Crisis Center, has some new additions this year.  

"We have over a million dollar collection of Shelby Mustangs, which is a very rare and extensive collection that we've never had before," said East Texas Crisis Center Special Events Coordinator Carrie Brantley. "John Schneider who played Bo Duke on Dukes of Hazzard is going to be here. He's been in Tyler twice this year, so he's kind of becoming a regular, but this is the last time he will be in Tyler for quite some time, so he will be signing autographs with the General Lee."  

The East Texas Auto and Cycle Show starts this Friday night, February 16th at Harvey Convention Center in Tyler at 5:00 p.m. and goes till 9:00 p.m. It continues Saturday from 9:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m., and again Sunday from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Admission is $7.00 for adults and $3.00 for children. Children under five get in free.
