Low Budget Car Club will judge the cars and trucks at our Wild Wheels Car Show September 20, at the Missouri State Fairgrounds. Here is their story.

While planning the Wild Wheels Car and Bike Show, I started to look for judges. Rick Yeager's motorcycle club will help judge the bikes. Low Budget Car Club will judge the cars and trucks. Deana Taylor from Low Budget Car Club contacted me, and wanted to know how the club could help or get involved. We brainstormed one morning and she did a great job helping me plan and put together the event. Then I realized we need some judges for the cars and trucks, and who better than Low Budget Car Club.

Since Low Budget Car Club will be judging, I asked Taylor some questions so all of you can get to know the club a little better. The club is based out of Sedalia, Mo. It started about five years ago when Taylor met James Harmon and Kevin Zbornak. They decided to start a new club with a new attitude. They called themselves the Low Budget Car Club, because without a lot of money they take pride in taking trips to the junk yard and doing their own work.The Club became official when attending a cruise night at the Wheel Inn. Oh, how we all miss the Wheel Inn. Now, back to the story. While at the cruise night, they met others who encouraged them to become an official club.

We are about building and driving. Some people hunt, some people fish, and then there are those who work on or build cars. We have a passion for the history and the culture that we would like to share with the world, Taylor said.

Low Budget Car Club meets the fourth Saturday of every month at Goody's Steakburgers in Sedalia. Car lovers who are interested in joining, can message the group on Facebook. Prospect members will attend at least 3 consecutive monthly meetings, then they will be voted on by existing members. The club also has junior members, who are younger than 16. There are no dues to join the Low Budget Car Club. You may notice established members around Sedalia who are sporting t-shirts and window decals for the Low Budget Car Club.

We are still a relatively small car club, but we want to grow. We want to be able to give back to the community and share our passion, Taylor said.

Now that you know a little more about Low Budget Car Club, we look forward to seeing everyone at the Wild Wheels Car Show this Saturday.

The day of registration is $30 and the first 50 will get a station t-shirt. We will have plaques for show vehicles that place first thru third.
