34 years ago, Skip Knowles decided it was high time to drive some attention to his adopted home of Vicksburg. And I do mean "drive."
"I've always had old cars and attended shows, and you know Vicksburg's kind of a unique little town that's not on the way to anywhere," says Knowles. "I decided we needed something to bring people to town to see what we had down there. So I thought, ’Well we’ll do a car show.’"
