With the flick of a switch, Chucky Williams can make his car dance.
The front wheels to his alligator-green Cutlass Supreme take turns rising in the air and falling back down to the beat of the song playing out of a nearby trunk.
More than 1,000 people showed up Saturday to see tricked-out cars of all varieties at the Red Dirt Kings Car and Bike Show in the Transportation Building at State Fair Park in Oklahoma City.
Williams, who outfitted hydraulics to his car to help make it move, said the community behind these specialty cars is a lively one.
“This is serious business out here,” he said. “Lots of people put lots of time into these whips. We all want to be the best.”
Cars filled every inch of the building Saturday as the proud owners took turns showing off their car's unique features.
One car, belonging to a man who identified himself only as “Snap,” was a themed Froot Loops cereal mobile complete with the image of Toucan Sam and giant blue, purple and yellow spinning wheel rims.
The themed cars are known as “donks,” which are typically painted in bright colors and feature brands of cereal and candy bars.
Snap sprinkled a handful of Froot Loops cereal on the show room floor around his “donk “for good measure.
“It's all about the presentation,” Snap said. “Got to show people what's good.”
Other highlights of the car show were:
• A neon purple Hot Wheels car that used trophies from past car shows to prop open the hood.
• An orange and blue car dedicated to the Thunder Basketball team.
• A car with a fully stocked wet bar in the trunk.
• A Power Wheels toy car tricked out to include its own sound system and television screens.
“People just really have a passion for making their cars look good,” Williams said. “We have a lot of fun doing it, too.”
