Historic Nokomis Day Car Show

On February 19, 2023, the Nokomis Area Civic Association (NACA) hosted a car show as a part of their annual Historic Nokomis Day. This event is a celebration of the town’s roots, in addition to serving as a fundraiser for local children who could use some financial assistance to attend the County Parks and Recreation’s summer camp program. 

The show field was full, aided by the presence of 19 member cars from the Suncoast British Car Club. The weather was beautiful and, overall, it was a great day to be in Nokomis. To top it off, Jerry and Cathy Jurgenson’s 1973 Lotus Europa won Best of Show Classic 1970’s and Stu and Pat Clipson’s 1954 Jaguar XK120 Roadster won Best Import of the Show.
