Photos in the “USO Car Show Ontario, Calif.” Album

Album photo
Description: Our club, Street Rods Unliimited, So. Cal. helped put this show together.

The USO Ontario Charity Car and Motorcycle Show took place at what is now called the old Terminal of Ontario Airport.

The show was to raise money for the USO Ontario to help members of the military find a place to relax, sort of a home away from home as some members call it.

The USO or United Services Organization is private, non-profit organization that although is not a government organization it is recognized by the Department of Defense, Congress and the President of the United States who serves as Honorary Chairman of the USO.
The most interesting part of the event to be the Angel Cars.
"Each car represents the different areas where people died in 9/11," she said. "Whether it be the Twin Towers, Pentagon or in flight."
Two officers from the airport police paid for the gas for the five Angel Cars to travel to the USO event.
Angel Car 1 is dedicated to first responders; Angel Car 2 is dedicated to the first World Trade Center tower; Angel Car 3 is dedicated to victims of the second tower; Angel Car 4 is dedicated to victims of the Pentagon, and Angel Car 5 is dedicated to the in-flight victims.
375 cars joined in the festivities.
$2500 was spent and the show raised $25,000. All to be donated to the USO.
Jim Busch of of Street Rods's Unlimited, So. Cal. won Sunday's raffle prize of $1,100. He garnered applause from the audience when he decided to donate the prize money back to the USO. Kudo's to Jim.

"The USO is really a special organization and they need all the help they can get," Busch said.

Next year will be bigger and better.
