The 15th annual Mt. Pisgah Auto Crusade car show filled the Cumming fairgrounds Saturday, with dozens of classic cars coming from all over the southeast for the event. 

Dow Reid, who has been bringing his classic 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air was back for another year.  Perched in the trunk of his car, Reid watched as other auto owners arrived and began to set up their displays.  "I've been coming every year, and it just keeps getting better," remarked Reid.

Probably the most unusual car, if it really could be called that, was a 1948 Diamond T semi-tractor that is in the process of being turned into a custom wrecker.  Owner Robert Killian said he enjoys working on the truck, which sports everything from rolled edges on the bed, made out of construction re-bar, to a miniature cow-catcher on the front, just like you would find on an old train engine.  

The weather cooperated, giving the show competitors and visitors a nearly perfect day at the fairgrounds, with a stiff breeze keeping the temperature from rising, and not a drop of rain during the entire event.
