Car lovers rev up Bodden Town

Youth Services Unit Open House Car and Bike Show attendees were treated to a bevy of classic rides, modern cars and vintage trucks at the Bodden Town Civic Centre on Saturday.

The event, which was postponed earlier in the year because of rain, was staged to stimulate the interest of young people. But according to Youth Services representative James Myles, they did not have the good turn-out of young people as expected but they were pleased that the older gentlemen had brought their cars and bikes.

Modified Ford Mustangs, aerodynamic suspensions, vintage trucks and a Lotus race car were proudly on display by owners such as Larry Cayasso, Junior Hydes, Chris Palmer, Mario Rankin, Osbourne Bodden, Peter Goddard, Micheal Burlington, Graham Conolly and Mark “Sly-sa” Nelson.

The event also showcased a domino tournament with Cayman Islands Domino Association President Ray McLaughlin and his team of lady officials as well as information talks on safe driving with over 22 participants in the Youth Services Unit.

Members from the Our Little Miss, Girl Guides, Girls Brigade and Cadet Corp also lent their services to make sure there was enough food on hand for everyone.

The Youth Services Department thanks all those involved as well as Mr. Knight for judging the car show and the apprentices of the Superior Auto Training Programme for their guest appearances. The department especially thanked the Cayman Islands Youth Association for assisting with the bouncing castle, namely Moesha, Tayvis, Aolani, Kimberly and Nigel.

Byron ‘Fira Bug’ Nelson lent his advice and assistance in setting up the car show and Courtney Myles and Roy Bush helped with safe driving talks.

Sponsors Lorna’s Texaco, Walkers Road Texaco, Shedden Road and Seven Mile Beach Esso, Rohelio’s Car Wash, Tony’s Toys Car Boutique, Automotive Art, Domino’s Pizza and South Coast Bar and Grill made sure there were prizes and giveaways. ‘Sly-sa’ kept the crowd entertained with quality tunes during the day.
