Car enthusiasts at the show

Ethan Mann, left, and his grandfather Barry Mann braved the rain to take in Thunder at the Bay on Sunday, an outing they had planned for a while.

Steve Netkow said he still has a smile on his face 10 years after he raced his 1970 Plymouth Superbird at a Nascar track in Kansas.

“It was an incredible experience to get out there and run it wide open, which you never get a chance to do,” said Netkow. “It handles so beautifully.”

The car, which was designed specifically for Nascar at a time when the rules dictated that race cars that were racing on the track also had to be sold on the street, made a stop at the Thunder at the Bay car show held this weekend at the Canadian Lakehead Exhibition grounds.
