For the 25th straight year, the Butch Cassidy Car Club hosted the Helper Outlaw Car Show amid fantastic weather and even better cars.

"This year we had a great show," said Butch Cassidy member Mike James, who has been with the show from the very beginning. "In fact, I believe there were more cars and patrons at this show than we have ever had before."

According to James, over 200 vehicles from Utah, New Mexico, Colorado and Arizona participated in this year's contest making it one of the most unique and lively shows in the state.

"We had so many amazing cars this year," continued the longtime organizer. "From beautiful late model rides to rare and classic customs, this show really had a little bit of flavor for everyone."

At the 25th Annual Outlaw Show, more than 200 entries competed for over 100 custom trophies in a bevy of categories, with several of the cars drawing special notice from the collectors crowd.

"The best of the 1930s award went to a one-of-a-kind 1935 Packard which has competed all over the United States, winning at the Packard Nationals," explained James. "The seven year complete restoration was brought to Helper by John Mason and thoroughly enjoyed by the crowd."

Dwayne Carpenter's 1959 Mercury Turnpike Cruiser, a 1957 Ford Wagon and a late model Dodge Magnum, which won the Boyack Award, were also noted by James.

"This show gets better every year," commented fellow long time Butch Cassidy/Helper Outlaw organizer Jimmy Noyes. "It's so great to see all these great cars come into town. And it is heartwarming to see the way the community supports this show. We will keep it coming back as long as we can."
