RICHLAND, Wash. --- The hot rods were out in force Saturday for the Cool Desert Night's Show N' Shine in Richland, and the stories behind the cars were almost as good as the car's themselves.
Wiley Witherspoon brought a 1926 Dodge Sedan to the show. He said it has been in his family since then and says he plans to give it to his son when he is done with it. Witherspoon says, "My 19-ear-old has helped me work on it, when I get rid of it I'm going to give it to him."
Derek Archer also has a car passed through the family. He got a 1965 Devin C from his father and says there aren't many out there. Archer says, "There's 25 known to exist including this one and only 150 were ever made."
Ron Barbee brought his 1966 Chevy Corvair, which he says goes 0 to 60 in just 3 seconds. Barbee says, "I quit all my hobbies, sold my motorcycle, and concentrated on my little Corrair."
Hundreds of cars were on display at the Uptown Shopping Center and each not only had it's own shine, but it's own history.
