The car show will feature custom and restored cars, trucks and street machines. There will also be food trucks, entertainment, raffle tickets for sale and more.

So she Hip-Hopped up on Motown's lap to Rock 'N Roll and got the Funk on. Meanwhile, Folk wandered in off the streets with crazy hair and dark shades and wrote the story down." On that night, Sista Otis was conceived but she just calls it, "Rock 'N Roll"! More info here!
