Classic car enthusiast have been packing into the Civic Arena this weekend for the second annual Midwest Motor Rama.

The Motor Rama is the largest indoor car show in northwest Missouri, brining in classic cars, trucks, rat rods and more.

Car show coordinator Robert Davis operates the show with the help of his family. Davis said the show team prides themselves on bringing in the best of the best cars and motorcycles in the midwest.

“The Midwest Motor Rama is known for having premiere show cars. This isn’t like your local car show, these cars are all first class world winners from all across the country,” Davis said.

The show also brought in a few extra bucks for the local Camp Quality, a a summer camp for kids with cancer. All proceeds from the live auctions and a dollar from every ticket to the Motor Rama sold goes to benefit the summer camp.

“We really did our homework on this. We looked at several charities and we found that putting money into Camp Quality here, the money stays here. Camp Quality does so much for kids, and we’re all about kids and that’s why we chose them.We wanted the money to stay here and take care of local kids,” Davis said.

A check will be presented to Camp Quality during the awards ceremony Sunday at 1 p.m. Davis said he hopes to exceed last years donation and contribute over $5,000 to the summer camp.

The Midwest Motor Rama will continue Sunday from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. at the Civic Arena.
