LEXINGTON — A traditional feature of the Junk-n-tique Extravaganza is the car show. This year’s show will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 3 at the Dawson County Fairgrounds. The event is sponsored by Black Diamond Auto and Platte Valley Auto.

This is the first year Black Diamond Auto will organize the event. Mike Lonowski, owner of Black Diamond Auto, said he is expecting anywhere from 80 to 100 vehicles to be displayed at the event.

Registration is free and will be taken until 1 p.m., Lonowski said.

He said his secretary, Amanda Farrell, has been very involved in organizing the car show.

Lonowski previously organized another car show, Thunder in the Valley, which was held during Memorial Day weekend in downtown Lexington. That event hasn’t been held in recent years, he said.

Prizes will be given to all participants with a registered vehicle, he said. At 2:15 p.m., all the registered participants’ names will be entered into a pool to select the cash prize winners, Lonowski said.

The strategy to promote the event and invite participants was “to contact anyone and everybody we know,” he said.

Regular participants of the car show have also been helping get the word out and flyers were being passed out in many area towns, including Holdrege, Elm Creek, Kearney, Cozad, Gothenburg and North Platte, Lonowski said.

“Anybody who has got something they want to show, any vintage or brand is welcome,” he said.
