Super Ford Best Combo Car Show Recap

Attendees of the first annual Best Combo Car Show conducted Saturday at a multitude of businesses located along Bells Highway were treated to several special appearances.

The Best Combo Show originally began as a combined effort of Walterboro Motor Sales and Bojangles Restaurant, located next door to each other on Bells Highway.  Along the way, several other businesses and individuals joined in to help make the car show more successful.  The day was filled with educational and historical displays, music, food, and fun.

Over 50 trophies were prepared for presentation. There were cars, motorcycles, trucks, and even an airplane on display.  The displays stretched through the Bojangles, and Walterboro Motors Breland Hill Farmers Market II, Aaron’s, and Reid’s Store 1507 parking lots.

The Best Combos consisted of the 1955 Chevy Belair and 1937 Minnotti Coupe entered by Debbie and William Jones and three mustangs (1993, 2006, & 2008) entered by Suzanne Conklin.

The H. L. Hunley Camp #143 displayed a full-size replica of the H. L. Hunley recovered off the coast of South Carolina.  H. L. Hunley was a submarine of the Confederate States of America that played a small part in the American Civil War, but a much larger role in the history of Naval Warfare.  The replica, which has participated in numerous re-enactments, was displayed by 1st Lieutenant Commander Mark Clark and several other members of the Camp #143 of Sons of Confederate Veterans.

In addition, Dave Snell displayed his dragster sponsored by Doug Herbert Racing.  The wide tires and the roar of the engine of the dragster attracted the attention of all, young and old, alike.

Several car clubs from as far as 80 miles away participated, including Darby Racing Club, which is planning a show on August 25th on Northwoods Blvd. in North Charleston.  Proceeds will go to the National Center for Bullying Prevention.  We will be assisting the Darby club and others in these shows.

SC Toys is conducting a car show in support of “Stop the Violence” at the old stadium on Black Street, Walterboro, SC on August 18th.
