The Classic and Antique Car Show at the Randolph County Fair is set to take place this Saturday, and it will be filled with automobiles of all sorts.
"I will accept anything from go-carts to tractors - anything on wheels," said Boyd Badget, director of the event, when asked about the types of models expected at the fair.
This Car Show, set from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., will consist of a public show and a contest that will award two prizes.

From the beginning of the day until approximately 1 p.m., viewers will get to admire the craftsmanship of each entry while helping select the Public Choice Award.
The Public Choice Award will be based on monetary donations that will be placed in boxes in front of each automobile. At 1 p.m., the amounts of each box will be counted, and the box with the greatest amount will win the prize.
All funds collected for this award will be donated to the Randoph County Pin Wearers, a local charity affiliated with 4-H.
A portion of each $12 entry fee from the Car Show participants also will be donated to the Pin Wearers. The charity will receive $10 of each entry, and $2 will go to the fair.
A Queen's Choice Award also will be given.
Notable entries in the past include a Model A and a corn binder. Chevelles and Mustangs are among the host of newer cars that have made past appearances.
Door prizes have been donated by Advanced Auto, Napa Auto Parts and Duke's Steakhouse, according to fair organizers.
A wrecked car also will be provided by Bill's Auto Repair, for a showcase that is intended to bring awareness to the dangers of drunk driving and texting while driving.
