Litton said the list will be narrowed down to 10, and they will interview to make sure they meet the criteria. Then they will post it online and the community will decide by voting for their favorite.


“We are looking for a lot more submissions for the contest and hope to have a larger list because there are some who won’t qualify already,” said Litton. “We are also looking for sponsors for this project. And once this car is completely finished, we are going to make sure they go to the local car shows and every sponsor, person and business who helped will be listed on a sign and it will travel with the car to the shows.”


Litton said they will be holding a Hot Rod Car Show to help raise money for the restoration and are partnering with Low Cash Classics. She added they will be giving away prizes. They will make a list of parts and anyone who wants to help can purchase a part and bring it by the shop.


“We will also hold shop tours and more,” said Litton. “We are hoping for donations to make this project possible. Let’s come together as a community to make someone’s dream come true.”


Litton said the owners of Mid-America Auto Body & Restorations, Steve Camden and Michael Haldaman, are passionate about what they do and want to give back to the community.


“They love giving back and love taking something and restoring it,” said Litton. “The goal is to have the community nominate people they think deserve something like this. We have all the local part stores and local shops who will be donating parts and labor.”


Litton said she has seen some really great submissions so far and can’t wait to see what else comes in. She added that there is also a GoFundMe set up that can be found on their Facebook page for those who would like to donate.
