DURHAM, Calif. - A North State classic car club has found a way to not only remember cars that were lost in the Camp Fire but the North State's favorite bridge as well.
Classic car lovers will soon gather for the 16th annual Hot August Day Car Show and Barbeque.
The event will be hosted by the Sierra View Region of the Vintage Chevrolet Club of America.
Dozens - if not hundreds - of classic cars were lost in the Camp Fire, as was the Honey Run Covered Bridge. Local builder Frank Lewis is rebuilding the bridge. He's also a classic car buff, and has been since he was a young teenager.
Lewis built a replica of the bridge in just a few days, which he and others plan to display at the car show. Attendees will be able to donate funding for the new bridge at the event.
Even though many of those cars burned, they will not be scrapped.
Organizers plan to post pictures of the old cars when they were photographed in tip-top shape so that people can remember all the love and care that went into these old cars.
The classic car show will be held on Saturday, August 10, at the Chico Elks Lodge shaded area. Admission is free, and there will be vendors, a raffle, music, and classic cars.
The show is from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
