More than 2,000 people braved the hot weather Saturday to walk down automotive memory lane as they attended the first community event of the Olde Town Hiram Business Association titled, “Hot Rod Madness.”

More than 150 antique and classic cars joined numerous hot rods and other road machines at the event across from Hiram City Hall.

In addition to entertainment, awards were given out to the top three automobiles in the show, including the Mayor’s Choice Award presented by Mayor Doris Devey.

That award was presented to David and Pam Martin of McDonough whose restored 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 won the mayor’s heart.

Other automobiles featured in the show that took awards were a 1969 Red Chevy Camaro, owned by Ken Rupp, which captured the Best in Show Award, while the People’s Choice Award went to the 1969 Orange Chevy Camaro of Jeff Freeman.
