Celebrating 25 Years - 2015 marks the Silver Anniversary of the East Texas Auto & Cycle Show
The 2015 East Texas Auto & Cycle Show benefiting the East Texas Crisis Center will be celebrating the 25th Anniversary in February. The Silver Anniversary event will open at Harvey Convention Center in Tyler on Friday, February 20th at 4:00 p.m. and run through Sunday, February 22nd.
Each year the show features a special collection of cars and this year’s collection will be a tribute to the classic movie, American Graffiti. The show will capture the movie’s theme “where were you in ‘62” with tribute cars spanning the 50’s decade through 1962 that were featured in the movie.
The show brings in vehicles of all makes, from every decade, some very rare, some from car enthusiasts who own vast collections of cars and some from those who have owned or purchased the one “dream car” from their youth.
This year we have even more Entertainment for Kids and Adults.
Live entertainment will reflect the music of the same era featuring Matt and Megan Magill on Saturday and The Tyler All-Star Band with their special brand of 60’s rock & roll on Sunday. Recorded rock & roll music will play throughout the show along with recordings of Wolfman Jack who made a cameo appearance in the movie. Wolfman Jack was a gravelly voiced legendary rock & roll radio disc jockey in the 1960’s and 1970’s.
Each year’s show features an exciting car donated by Tyler Ford to be raffled off at the close of the show. 2015 will be the twelfth year that David Irwin, with Tyler Ford, has donated a car to help raise proceeds for the East Texas Crisis Center.
