TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Some took the chance to show off some hot wheels this weekend! That's with Ivy Tech Community College's 9th Annual Car Show.

More than 250 cars, trucks, motorcycles and even tractors found a spot in the event.

Students from the automotive program were the judges.

The event helps raise money for student scholarships in the Wabash Valley.

In the past 9 years, organizers say they've raised more than $90,000. 

"Our ability to establish scholarship funds for students who may otherwise find it difficult to go to school is super important to the work we do," said Becky Miller, research development executive director.

Organizers say this will be the last year for the car show.

In honor of Don Smith, who started the event, Ivy Tech is creating an endowment in his name.
