The Lone Cone Legacy Trust, Norwood’s endowment for making community grants, held the third-annual Pioneer Day Car Show on Sept. 30. This year, the event drew a total of 29 cars.
Doug Olson, an event committee member, said the numbers were not as high as the trust had hoped for. Still, the event was a success, he said.
“It was a rainy week, (with) predicted rain the day of the show,” he said. “But once again, everyone seemed to really enjoy being part of the show, and the spectator participation was excellent.”
Olson said he was happy that many local owners came out to show their cars. He said the handmade trophies, created by Charlie Bauch, were very popular.
Here are the categories and the winners:

Olson and LCLT president Carrie Andrew said volunteers like Kenny King, Corey Cook, Nolan Merrill, Mary Olson, Ashley Woodward and Simon Andrew helped make the show possible.
Olson and Andrew also said they were grateful for Ray Cody showcasing three motorcycles at the event and also making a donation to the Lone Cone Legacy Trust.
“This year, the trust received a special surprise in the form of a donation of approximately $ 1,200 from Ray Cody and Telluride Festival of Cars and Colors. We cannot fully express our gratitude to the volunteers and donors that made this year such a success,” Andrew said. “Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”
