Amherstburg’s Gone Car Crazy


by Garrett Fodor

From Corvettes and VW Beetles to Lamborghinis and McLaren’s, there was a vehicle for every preference on display at the “Amherstburg’s Gone Car Crazy” event on Sunday, July 24.

  Following a two-year hiatus, Amherstburg’s Gone Car Crazy returned to Dalhousie Street, in Amherstburg. Nearly 300 classic, modified, and hot rod cars lined the street for attendees and judges to see. 

  “We were extremely excited to be back and be able to have this event once again for our 15th year,” Scott Elliott, Chairman and event organizer for Amherstburg’s Gone Car Crazy, said. “The weather held up pretty good and despite the temperatures, there were a lot of spectators checking out the cars and local shops around the area.” 

  He was extremely pleased with the variety of vehicles on display, with the show featuring a wide-range of years, makes, and models. For Elliott, his favourite car on display was a black 1935 Buick. 

  Elliott noted that last year, they tried to host the event in October, but it was rained out, while the year prior was lost due to the COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions. He thanked all the attendees, along with the 30 volunteers, support of Windsor Police Service-Amherstburg, and the Town of Amherstburg for their support with the event.

  Elliot looks forward to being a part of next year’s “Amherstburg’s Gone Car Crazy” event and hosting the 2023 edition of festivities.
