Car lovers celebrate Cinco de Mayo

Boknology Inc., MJ Entertainment and the Premium Touch Auto and Marine Detailing crew has done it again. 

Cinco de Mayo was a day of old school classic cars at Carlos and Martin’s Tex-Mex Cantina restaurant, the second automotive show put on by the group at Seven Mile Shops this year. 

Michael Webster of MJ Entertainment said this month’s meet showcased many beautiful machines. 

“We wanted to bring out and show off some of the classics that Cayman has,” Webster said. “The gathering was small and sweet, with people pulling in just to see the cars. Among the crowd favourites were Anthony Echenique’s 1957 Chevy Bel Air and Dan Scott’s original 1980 Bandit Pontiac Trans Am.  

“Once again, we would like to thank Roy Bush for bringing out his old school Chevy Camaro, Arnie Scott and his classic Shelby Cobra, Harry Thompson with his 1964 Chevy Malibu and Wade Dacosta with his 368 Ferrari. 

“Look out for the end of July or beginning of August for the next big car show.” 

Webster, Shelby Carlos of Boknology and Shane Ebanks of Premium Touch put together Cayman’s Grand Autoshowoff in March. The gathering attracted dozens of rides, like a 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and a Ferrari 612 Scaglietti, along with local racers such as Jody Jervis and Dante “Ross” Hydes. 

Justin Thompson, in a BMW M6, and Shem Tibbetts, in a Hyundai Genesis, won the “Best Island Import” class. In the “Best Island Domestic” category, the winners were Linda Dacosta’s orange convertible Chevrolet Camaro and Kody Miller’s black Ford Ranger.  

Alexander “AJ” Conolly’s 2003 Mitsubishi Evolution and Allan Foster’s 1975 Datsun 280 topped the “Super Street Legal” class and “Redneck Custom” and a white Suzuki Hayabusa topped the “Best Motorbike” group.  

The race category, which was just for fun, saw Rohelio Wright’s Saxon-sponsored Chevrolet Camaro and Bobby Hulse’s Toyota Altezza as the top rides.
