The roar of engines, the paint and the gleam of chrome at the AOH Auto Show in Wellsville | News

WELLSVILLE — Despite inclement weather, the Ancient Hibernians Organization’s eighth annual Park ‘N Park Car Show attracted nearly 100 entries.

While the vehicles came with their own entourage, the show also attracted a large number of spectators who enjoyed just looking at the cars, watching and listening to the competitions – and eating.

As part of the show, the organizers blew up a car engine and many contestants competed for the title of having the loudest car. On a more serious note, a trophy was also presented in memory of mechanic and car enthusiast Roger Gee, who founded a car show that ran for several years in Wellsville.

In total, 40 awards, each from a different sponsor, were given out at the show.

The Roger Gee Memorial Trophy, where the winner’s name is immortalized on a custom Stanley Cup-style trophy while also receiving a regular trophy to take home, went to Mark Tilley’s 1976 Chevy C10 pickup.

A 1932 Ford Dearborn Duel owned by Don Skinner of Belmont won Best in Show overall, a three-peat as he had won that award the previous two years in different vehicles.

“We blew an engine from a donor vehicle, thanks to Lietzell’s repair and used vehicle shop, and took home over $300 in the winning time period,” said Matt Cannon, president of AOH, who was in charge of the event. The engine ran for 3 minutes and 16 seconds at Full throttle without oil.

He also said: “One of our main competitions, for loudest exhaust sound, was a huge success as usual.”

Loudest car results:

1st – Daniel Fuller, 2013 Quay Dragster with 130.9 dB

Second place: Regis Faulkner, 2014 Ford Mustang, 129.0 dB

Third: Daniel Fuller, 1969 Chevrolet Camaro, 128.8 decibels

Fourth: Tom Knight, 2005 Mustang, 128.0 dB

Fifth: Mike Studer, 1995 Camaro, 127.9 dB

6th: Brian Flamini, 1981 Chevrolet Corvette, 127.2 decibels

Kids’ Choice – won by a 2008 Corvette owned by Jessica Flamini-Vass.

Entrant selection went to a 1946 International Rat Rod owned by Carson Harvey.

“They are helping to make this event a success,” he added.
