"Cars Under the Stars" at Trade Mart

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) - One of the state's most eclectic collections of cars was at the Trade Mart on the state fairgrounds Saturday.

More than 70 cars were on display. The wide display of vehicles ranged from old to new and classic to one-of-a-kind cars.

The Mississippi Automobile Manufacturer's Association organized the event. All of the proceeds go into the association's scholarship fund.

"We sponsor kids and sponsor students in engineering and technical trades so that they can carry on the technical end of the auto industry in the state of Mississippi".

Organizers say the wide variety of cars that were on display represent the diversity of the automobile industry. It was the fifth annual Cars Under the Stars event.
