COLUMBIA CITY — Columbia City’s downtown was the scene for the 12th Annual Junior Achievement Auto, Truck, and Cycle Show Saturday.

Nearly 130 vintage vehicles made their stop around the Courthouse Square as onlookers enjoyed the variety of two- and four-wheeled displays.

Owners from Northern Indiana showed off their vehicles as they stood by answering questions and being photographed.

One veteran of the car show, Joe Kramer from Columbia City, has been attending the event for at least seven years.

Kramer, who is retired from working 27 years for the Indiana State Highway Department, stood by his entry, a 1995 Ford F150 and shared how he became interested in car shows.

“I bought the truck used. It had 12,000 miles on it, and I probably drove it every day for three or four years,” Kramer said. “I did detailing work off and on for 15 years and decided to fix up the truck for shows.”

Today, his truck sits in his garage and is only driven when he goes to a show.
