DELAVAN--Bigger isn’t always better, although that mantra was true for the Cars Time Forgot celebration.
However, the event’s growing popularity among vintage vehicle enthusiasts of all ages, unfortunately, had made it more dangerous. That’s because increasing numbers of entries and spectators created potential problems along Delavan’s high-traffic downtown streets.
So, this year’s ninth annual show has expanded from a four-hour event on a Sunday to a three-day celebration -- July 6 through July 8. And it’s moved to a much bigger venue in Lake Lawn Resort, something that organizers are hoping will make it that much better for everyone involved.
“The event’s been growing every year, with more than 200 vehicles entered last year,” said Jackie Busch, executive director of the Delavan-Delavan Lake Area Chamber of Commerce. “Cars were blocking Second Street completely and quite a few others had to be parked farther away from everything else. It was becoming a little dangerous being on a major highway with so many cars on top of each other, some with doors and hoods open, and it was becoming increasingly difficult to do that safely.”
