Visit Kurt, Mike and their WWII Jeep at 2nd Car Show for Autism

Newtown PA. Kurt Eberling Jr. and Mike Kettlye love car shows. They enjoy taking their WWII Jeep (1942 Ford) dressed the part as WWII GI’s and answering curious kids’ questions. They remember growing up listening to their fathers’ stories of WWII. Last year, they won “Best in Show, Kids’ Favorite” at Potential Inc.’s 1st car show for autism, dressed as Band of Brothers paratroopers. They can’t wait to take part in this year’s 2nd annual car show for autism on June 11, from 10 to 3, at 170 Pheasant Run, Newtown, PA.

Gadi Naaman, director of development for Potential, explained: “We are excited about Kurt and Mike coming back this year. We have worked hard to create a real family event for the community. In addition to their Jeep, our Touch-A-Truck section will include a ladder fire truck from Newtown Fire Department, a “monster” tow truck from Rob’s Automotive and Collision Center, a police cruiser from Newtown Police Department, a camouflage Hummer from Discount Auto and an autism clad motorcycle, courtesy of Patrick Healy.

Besides show quality cars, there will be games for the children, face painting, balloon artists, live band performance by Rose Parade, Karate demonstrations by Action Karate, music by WPST 94.5 that will be broadcasting live from the show and food, lots of food, as well as crafters and other vendors”

The cars, trucks and motorcycles will be judged professionally and trophies awarded to the winners. The first 100 vehicle owners to register will receive a dash plaque. Car owners, vendors and volunteers can register online:
