Vintage and custom vehicles including sedans, trucks and motorcycles will be on display in the Main Street parking lots of Luck-E-Star, Smith’s Garage, Warrensburg Car Care and Krystal Chrysler-Jeep, according to event co-chair Candice Healy.

The Warrensburg Business Alliance, of which she is co-chair, held its initial event several weeks ago. Named Taste of Warrensburg, the popular event featured samplings of food cooked up by local restaurants. Admission is free to the Warrensburg Car Hop. The rain date is Sept. 13.
