Calendar Pick: Classic City Car Show

Classic City Car Show

Mark Bugg’s car collection, which was started by his father, the late George C. Bugg, is vast and varied. It contains dozens of classic, well-maintained cars including pre-war Fords, World War-era Jeeps, post-war Chevrolets and more, offering guests a slice of American history. There are even one-of-a-kind picks like a 1948 Lincoln Continental that belonged to Motown Spinners singer Philippé Wynne. Most importantly, at the root of the show is a good cause. Mark Bugg is holding the event in conjunction with Bigger Vision, a nonprofit shelter for those experiencing homelessness in Athens. The shelter is responsible for providing food, lodging and basic necessities for up to 36 people every night, and all of the proceeds from the car show will go toward supporting that cause. There will also be a silent auction, vendor booths, outdoor food trucks and a family-friendly play area at the event. Kids under 12 get in free.
