LETU’s Auto Society is a Christ centered group of auto enthusiasts who are putting their skills and abilities to use for a higher purpose. They have modified a fully off-road Toyota Land Cruise for a missionary family in Liberia.
Liberia is one of the wettest places on earth, with average yearly rainfall in excess of 100 inches. Trekking this terrain is very difficult without proper transportation. Auto Society has raised over $20,000 in parts and financial aid from the local community to fund the Land Cruiser project for missionaries Ben and Natalie Colby. A few of the many enhancements made to the vehicle are large mud tires, heavy duty suspension, and waterproofing the engine with a snorkel.
The car show will also showcase classic cars and trucks, muscle cars and late model cars from owners around the East Texas area. All proceeds benefit missions.
