EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Those who drove past Franklin Street on Saturday afternoon may have noticed some classic cars lining the road.

This is because this weekend was the 20th annual West Side Nut Club Cruise-In.

Event organizers say one thing that sets it apart from a car show is that it’s open to all makes and models, so they had a range of all types of cars across several decades. They say the atmosphere is a big part of why people keep coming back year after year.

“I think one of the reasons why people like coming down is the West Side Nut Club is able to give back to the community and there’s a lot of friends and camaraderie that comes down here,” Zach Henderson with the West Side Nut Club said.

Organizers say they don’t have people register beforehand, people are welcome to show up and register the same day. They say it’s free to participate, but they do accept donations.

The money raised goes toward their foundation fund, which organizers say they use to benefit the community.

We spoke with the West Side Nut Club officials on Thursday morning about what they were looking forward to with this year’s Cruise-In.
