Those were the days.
The 1950s. The 1960s.
Even earlier.
Later, thanks to movies like “American Graffiti” and television series like “Happy Days” an American love affair for older or rare cars was born.
Or rather, Reborn.
So, it was understandable when a purple 1955 Bel-Air with purple flames on the hood took the coveted People’s Choice award at the seventh annual DC Cruisers Show and Shine Saturday in the parking lot of the High Plains Community Center in Killdeer.
Dave Hickey and Terall Bandy claimed the tall purple trophy, which conveniently matched the color of ther Bel-Air entry.
There were more than 30 cars participating in the annual car show competition put on by the Dunn County Cruisers.
Some were muscle cars.
Some were trucks.
But each drew their own fans to the car competition.
There were cash and door prizes supplied by local sponsors.

The sponsors included:

The Killdeer Veterans Memorial (above) reflected many participants in the annual car show. But, it was a purple 1955 Bel-Air from Baker brought by Dave Hickey and Teri Bandy who claimed the People’s Choice award (above right and right) from the People’s Choice Award sponsors, Cheryl and Scott Boyce of Killdeer.
