Richmond woman wins miniature truck
WINCHESTER — An intermingling of motorized muscle, chrome, vintage tunes and sizzling barbecue smoke came together once again to produce a classic summer scene at the Winchester BMR parking lot on Sunday.
The fourth annual car show organized by the Highway 43 Car Club drew sunshine as well as approximately 120 or more cars.
A fundraiser for the food banks at the House of Lazarus and Community Food share, the event also generated $1,470 for the Club itself, which sold draw tickets on an early-1950s miniature model Ford truck.
Originally purchased by Winchester BMR co-owner Ken Boje at a Toronto gift show, the one-of-a-kind distressed-style piece — made by artisans in Vietnam — was won by Linda Teed of Richmond.
Teed said the little truck would fit right in with the rustic decor of her new home. She purchased the winning ticket at Sunday’s show and attended the event with her brother from South Mountain.
