WORTHINGTON — Early next week, Worthington residents’ ears will be treated to the deep rumble of small-block V8s and the rugged drone of the 1924 Chevrolet Superior’s four-cylinder engine.

Members of the Vintage Chevrolet Club of America will be in Worthington from June 11-15 to hold its 42nd annual Midwest Meet.

The event will bring 35 people from all over the Midwest, and cars from eight different decades.

The club will display their vehicles in the Comfort Suites & Conference Center parking lot from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday.

The collection mostly includes cars from the ’40s, ’50s and ’60s, as well as older, rare models such as a 1932 Confederate Coupe and an original 1934 1.5-ton truck.

“There’s old cars if people are interested in that, and there’s Corvettes, Camaros, Impalas,” said Mary James, a member and organizer who lives just outside Minneapolis. “We’ll be out in the town as well, so people can see the cars then.”

The group will tour various businesses during their visit, inducing Toby Shine’s Man Cave in Okoboji, Iowa, the Intivity Center at AGCO in Jackson and Highland Homes Manufacturing in Worthington.

They’ll also tour Spomer Classics and meet with owner Marv Spomer, who owns his fair share of classic Chevrolets.

“We picked Worthington because of Marv and Marv’s big attraction of his,” James said. “And Worthington is a nice small town with a lot of things to offer and easy to get around in, so we’re looking forward to spending the week in the city.”

Spomer is excited to see the group, in Worthington of all places.

“It’s quite a big deal for us to get this in Worthington, Minn.,” Spomer said.
