LONGVIEW, Texas– LeTourneau University’s Automotive Society is revving up for its 35th

Saturday, April 16, from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.

This year’s Car Show
will feature a range of vehicles from classic muscle cars, race cars,
custom restorations and a few new cars mixed in.
“If you are a car
enthusiast, the Automotive Society Car Show is always a very fun time
with lots of great cars and gives you the opportunity to meet other car
lovers in the community” said LETU student Jonathan
Olson, coordinator for this year’s Car Show.
“This year we will
donate 75% of the proceeds from the Car Show to Interfaith Hospitality
Network,” Olson said. IHN brings the faith community together to help
homeless families regain their housing, independence
and dignity. The ministry currently operates in 41 states and partners
with congregations within a community to help transform lives.
Proceeds from the last two car shows have gone to restore and equip a Toyota Land Cruiser sent to a missionary family in Africa.
