TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, the East Texas Auto & Cycle Show kicked off Saturday morning in downtown Tyler.

The show benefits the East Texas Crisis Center.  Visitors got a glimpse of some classic cars Saturday from American Muscle, to something a bit more vintage.  Tyler Ford once again donated a brand new Shelby GT Mustang to be raffled off for $10.00.  Organizers say the best part is you don't have to be a car lover to enjoy it.

"The Auto & Cycle Show is really the best of both worlds because it's a lot of fun for families and people of all ages, and it all goes to a very good cause and benefits women and children right here in the community," said event organizer Carrie Brantley.  Last year alone produced $110,000.00 for the East Texas Crisis Center.  The show kicks off Friday at the Harvey Convention Center in Tyler.  For more information, go to our homepage and click on the Know More on 7 link.  There you will find East Texas Auto & Cycle Show.
