Auto enthusiasts check out the sweet rides gathered at the 2012 Ultimate Car Show presented by SouthTowne and Peach State Corvette Association. The fifth annual charity show is Saturday at SouthTowne on Bullsboro Drive.

There will be an array of shiny rides on view Saturday at the fifth annual Ultimate Car Show presented by Peach State Corvette Association and the Newnan SouthTowne auto dealership.

The club helps a variety of groups in Fayette and Coweta counties with proceeds from its events. Proceeds from the 2012 show went to help CORRAL - Coweta Organization for Riding, Rehabilitation and Learning and Promise Place in Fayette County - and others. 

CORRAL is a Roscoe-based group that provides horseback riding therapy for mentally challenged youngsters.

Promise Place exists to prevent domestic violence through awareness programs, educational training and by providing safe environments for the victims and their families, utilizing legal advocacy, emergency shelters and transitional housing. Promise Place serves victims of domestic violence and their children in the Griffin, Ga., Judicial Circuit, which includes Fayette, Spalding, Pike and Upson counties. For more on the group go to www.promiseplace.org — it also has a 24-hour crisis hotline, 770-460-1604.

In 2011 the Peach State Corvette group assisted Community Welcome House safe haven for women and children in Coweta County. Welcome House residence shelter assists women and children fleeing from domestic violence. For more go to http://www.communitywelcomehouse.org .

The SouthTowne dealership is located on Bullsboro Drive off Interstate 85 at Newnan exit 47. Registration for show cars to be entered is 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, with awards presented at 3 p.m.

Show car entry fee is $25, or there is a $10 fee for those who just want to display a vehicle without being entered in the judging. Awards will be given for Best Chevy, Ford, Custom Rod, Corvette, Mopar, Truck, Motorcycle, SouthTowne’s Choice plus multiple top class awards.

There will be a DJ Saturday afternoon providing music, food and drinks, door prizes, raffles, silent auction, 50/50 drawing and more.

The majority of its members reside in Fayette and Coweta counties. Each year the association sponsors events to raise money for local charities. Last year the group raised $3,600 that was donated to charities.
