If there's a car show that's run continuously for longer than the O'Reilly Auto Parts Rod & Custom Car Show in Monticello, IA. it's news to me. Since I moved to the Quad Cities in 1990, this small-town show with a big city attitude has always attracted great cars, and celebs for a little indoor sunshine when we need it most. And it was already in its' 25th year!

With a few adjustments for Covid-19 precautions, the Feb. 27th & 28th show will go on in it's incredible 52nd consecutive year! It's a People's Choice show with our friends Dave and Sue from 3-D Sound taking care of voting and emceeing duties.

Here on the Dwyer and Michaels Show we've interviewed many of the guests that have made appearances, including Lou Ferrigno from The Incredible Hulk, and Catherine Bach from the Dukes of Hazzard. This year, Balloon artist 'Papa Balloon' will keep the crowd amazed with his balloon creations. As long as he's not wearing 'Daisy Duke' shorts, it will remain as always, a family friendly event!

This year will be a celebration of show founder Ralph G. Muller and his vision for bringing together generations through their love of cars. For more information, visit the show website RodandCustomShow.com
