Bryan's "Old Rip" Car Show - OCT 4th

09/29/2008 - For more than 20 years, Bryans Parts Plus Auto Supply in Eastland has presented the Bryans Old Rip Car Show in conjunction with the Old Rip Festival & Parade held downtown Eastland. In years past, Bryans has provided not only a place for many vehicle enthusiast to show and tell about their prize pocessions, but also unprecedented special attractions.

Such attractions have Included the worlds largest school bus, named “Tigger”, and the record setting 7000 horse power John Force Castrol funny car. There have been many attention grabbers through the years that were definite head turners. Others include the King Krunch monster truck and a lawn mower capable of 80 plus mph. From cars ordered mail order from Sears, to 4X4 Edsels, to Dodge Vipers, you will certainly be in awe at this FREE annual event.

The continued growth of the event has provided an unparalleled car show event that has become a staple in West Texas for thousands of onlookers and tire kickers annually. And to further the fun and excitement, Bryan added a Dog Show last year that has become a part of the annual event.

When asked about the upcoming 22nd annual event, Bryan stated that all their family at Bryans enjoys putting together the show each year and that he personally enjoys all the people that the show brings together. Most people get wrapped up in the cars, and I too enjoy the cars, but I am a people person and I really enjoy doing something with, and for, our customers and potential customers. Through the years we’ve given away over 1500 trophies, 500 event shirts, thousands of caps and pens, and thousands in show giveaways. This has really got significant over the years and is really an awesome event. And as far as the dog show goes, its all for fun too. Every year it seems like more folks are bringing their dogs, so hey, lets allow the K9’s a little stardom too. I enjoy the opportunity to give back to the community that has been so supportive of our family and businesses and I am looking forward to yet another year.

This year’s show will be held on Saturday October 4th, and will immediately follow the Old Rip Parade. New for 2008, no registration and no judging as all participants will receive an award. All participants will be allowed to leave anytime after 2:00PM.

Once again Continental Battery Company will be on hand to cook all car Show participants FREE hamburgers. For more information about the show, check it out online at www.ebryans.com or feel free to drop by Bryans in Eastland at 925 E Main , or call 254 629-2158.
