Over 170 classics and customs in Albany Winter Rod & Speed Show

ALBANY, Ore. -- Hot rod and dragster fans, start your engines! Classic, custom and performance cars are filling Albany’s Expo grounds on Saturday for the 8th annual Winter Rod & Speed Show.


Show organizer Rich Bailey said there will be nearly 170 cars on display in two buildings.


Bailey said one of the many highlights will be a 1960 dragster restored by Jim Lindsay.


”In fact we didn't even know about this car until just recently. It turns out it was built and raced right here in Albany, way back in the day. (Lindsay) bought it and refurbished it,” said Bailey.


The Winter Rod & Speed Show runs from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday only; admission is $8 and part of the proceeds benefit the Children's Cancer Association of Oregon.
