Beckley VA Medical Center Car Show showcases hot rods from all across Appalachia


BECKLEY, WV (WVNS) — Every year, the Beckley VA Medical Center partners with West Virginia Classic Cars and Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 860 to put on its car show, which took place Saturday.

Beckley VAMC Public Affairs Director, Sara Yoke, said veterans who live at the facility or come for in-patient care can get some fresh air while looking at classic cars — from muscle cars to army jeeps.

“Having it right here at the hospital, it makes them feel really special,” Yoke said. “They almost feel like people are coming to see them.”

Yoke said people from other states came to show off their rides, including some of this year’s attendees driving up all the way from Tennessee.
