Stateline Classics Car Club
(Taken from Durand's Sesquacentennial History Book "Traveling Through Time" published in 2006)
Great Cars! Great People! And a Great Time! That's what the members of this group have every time they gather for their annual Father's Day Car Show. The Stateline Classics Car Club was established in the Spring of 1996, and every year since its inception, members have been showing off their special cars, trucks and motorcycles. Jack Haley, Glenn Matteson, Tom Klapp and Tom and Debbie Randall founded the group.
The purpose of the founding members was to get out on the road with their classic cars and share adventures with others who have the same passion.
The Stateline Classics Car Club assists in the community by donating to special projects and needs. In addition, proceeds from the Father's Day Car Show are donated to St. Jude's Childrens Hospital. The club held it's annual show at Lakeside Plaza on Best Road until moving to its present location 'On the Square' in downtown Durand in 2005. The car club began with 13 cars at their first show in 1997, and by 2005 they reached the 100 car milestone.
The are just a group of average people who want to show off their 'special' classic vehicles.
Currently the club holds monthly meetings from February through November. Membership is open to anyone interested in preserving the history of classic vehicles. The programs are both entertaining and educational.
Join the members as they gather every Father's Day on the square in downtown Durand to display their cars.
Each year over 25 trophies are awarded, so come on out and enjoy the variety of entries.
A professional DJ plays tunes from the 50's and 60's throughout the day in addition to other activities.
