The Jaguar Club of Tulsa resurrected their annual EuroMotor Extravaganza in downtown Sand Springs this year after a five-year hiatus. The event drew nearly fifty entries and raised $607 for the Sand Springs Animal Shelter.
In addition to the beautiful cars, the event also included a silent auction to benefit the Sand Springs Animal Shelter and an awards banquet and wine bar. The club successfully raised $607, the most they've ever raised according to Vice President Clark Frayser.
The Euro Expo first arrived in Sand Springs in 2007 and set a precedent of giving back to the community by donating all proceeds to the Sand Springs Home and the Shriners' Transportation Fund. It ran annually for six years before having its final event in 2012.
This year the club picked up right where they left off, packing out the downtown parking with Fiats, Volvos, MGs, and more. A gorgeous blue sky with a slight breeze and high of 85 degrees made for near-perfect conditions for the festivities.
Jaguars were the best-represented vehicle at the show with a dozen entries, closely followed by the Italian Alfa Romeo with ten entries.
There were fifteen total classifications in the event, with trophies awarded for first through third place in each category.
The oldest vehicle at the show was Todd Coady's 1928 Bentley 4 1/2 Litre, followed by Les Neidell's 1938 Gulf Miller Indy Roadster. The newest vehicles were a pair of 2017 Fiat 124 Abarths. The 1928 Bentley won Best of Show.
