UT Tuners, a student organization that serves as a social conduit to connect University students and community car enthusiasts, will host its third annual charity car show Sunday, Oct. 11, from noon to 4 p.m. in parking area 25 by Rocket Hall.

“A car show is just something we saw as a great way to gather and give to the community,” said Devon Wuerfel, president of UT Tuners and undergraduate in the College of Engineering. “We found a charity we were passionate about and have formed a great relationship with.”

Registration for the show will take place from noon to 1 p.m. and will cost $5 for students and $10 for non-students. The show is free to attend.

“We have had all kinds of cars at our shows in the past — everything from stock Cadillacs to fully prepped race cars,” Wuerfel said. “We have bikes, big diesel trucks, lowered mini-trucks, super cars, exotics, etc. Anyone is welcome; we do not turn anyone away.”

All registered vehicles will be eligible for a variety of awards: charity choice, best bike, best classic, best domestic, best European, best exotic, best in show, best Japanese domestic market, loudest exhaust and lowest car.

The show is sponsored by Caught Ya Lookin’ and General Motors Powertrain Toledo Transmission Operations.
