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.
