Sponsors of the Sept. 29 annual car and bike show at Pleasant View Assisted Living, 641 Euclid Ave., were disappointed with the small number of vehicles entered, blaming it on the rain earlier Saturday. They explained owners of classic cars don't like to take them out in the rain.

The show was sponsored by the Beth-Haven Retirement Center at 2500 Pleasant St., and proceeds will go to its Pleasant View Gazebo fund.

The cars and bikes were judged by the residents, exhibitors and People’s Choice.

All the winners are Hannibal residents.

John and Debbie Golian's yellow 1979 Corvette won first place in People's Choice and Residents' Choice. John Golian said he is grateful to be attending, because he has had a triple bypass surgery and was in the hospital for 21 days.

Lana Link's bright pink 1972 Volkswagen Bug - covered with decals - won first place as the Exhibitors' Choice and second as Residents' Choice. Link explained she had it painted pink after recovering from breast cancer, declaring, "I pinked out."

Her car was previously owned by her dad, Babe Rouse, 92, who attended the car show. He is well-known in Hannibal as a World War II veteran, who often rides in military parades. He bought it for a fishing car, then she saw it and wanted it for herself. Link earlier owned a 1966 Volkswagen Bug.

Three people won trophies for their motorcycles.

Bob Orr's 2009 Harley-Davidson Electra Glide won three first-place trophies, for People's Choice, Residents' Choice and Exhibitors' Choice.

John Foubester's 2016 Harley Road Glide took second place in Residents' Choice and third place in People's Choice.

Jeff Rush's bike won second place in People's Choice and third in Residents' Choice.
