The Heritage Fair Car Show marked its 10th anniversary July 10 with a rousing show beneath sunny skies run by TJs Klassics from Huntley. More than 100 sports, classic and antique cars participated along downtown Main Street, with the top 20 vehicles earning trophies – plus special trophies for the Best of Show winner. Haden Tipps of Janesville, Wis. also crafted one-of-a-kind People's Choice award.
Best of Show winner Scott Schifferer sent his dad, Ken, out to Omaha, Neb., 18 months ago to buy the 1969 Buick Skylark.
"My son saw it on Hemmings [Motor News] and told the guy he was going to buy it," Ken said. "The guy had it 35 years - garage kept. It only had 30,000 miles on it."
Ken attributed the unique paint color to candy apple red over orange. And, of course, it boasts plenty of horsepower.
"It has a Buick 350 engine with 560 horse. It's definitely a muscle car," Ken said. "We've only been to three shows and he's won every time!"
