Slo Poks founding father Ron “Steve” Stephens puts his arm around his wife Gertrude Stephens while admiring a 1956 Ford Thunderbird during the Slo Poks car show, Show N’ Shine, in Vancouver Aug. 17. The Vancouver couple drove a red 1955 Ford Thunderbird to Reno for their wedding 65 years ago, giving Thunderbirds a special parking spot in their hearts

Slo Poks hosted their car show “Show N’ Shine” on Aug. 17 on Main Street in Vancouver. The show was open to hot rods, custom vehicles, motorcycles, rat rods and collector cars, with each registration paying a $15 fee and donating school supplies for Hough Elementary School. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Hough Foundation for programs and projects.
