The Alaska Custom Car & Cycle Show was held at the MacDonald Center in Eagle River, Alaska April 29th-May 1st, 2016. For the 26th annual event, exhibitors from all over Alaska displayed their cars, trucks and bikes both indoors and at the outdoor show & shine. The show featured something for everyone, with hot rods, classics, imports, muscle cars and more in attendance.
Exhibitors were all treated to goodie bags with show t-shirts and dash plaques and a pizza party on Saturday. Children in attendance had the opportunity to meet and take photos with Superman while walking around the show floor. Major marketing partners of the event were O'Reilly Auto Parts, Meyer Bros. Muffler City & Brake, Anchorage Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM, Safe & Sound and Classic Motion.
Winning the People's Choice award was Robbie Huck of Eagle River, debuting his Gene LaMay fabricated 2016 S&W dragster. Best in Show honors went to Dennis and Sharon Anderson, also of Eagle River, for their beautiful '61 Chevy Impala, and Troy Gonzales took the prize in the bike category with his 2006 Big Boy Chopper.
