Kroozinationals, a two-day car, truck and bike show and festival, returns to Hier's Park, in Huntington, on Oct. 5 and 6.
The shows are open to all trucks, cars, rods, customs, bikes, lowriders, street machines, motorcycles, Rat rods and special interest vehicles.
The feature car is the Penny Car, a 1949 Cadillac owned by Larry and Theresa Thompson, of Fort Wayne. The car is adorned with 38,295 pennies, which were adhered during the summer of 1999.
A variety of pennies were used on the car, including an 1817 "big cent," some error pennies and Indian head pennies. All the coins are heads up, except for four. The challenge to visitors is to find those four pennies.
Unlike other show vehicles, touching this car is encouraged.
