Voodoo Kings Kustom Car Club

hosts American Cancer Society benefit


VOLO — The rumble and roar of hundreds of customs, hot rods, muscle cars and motorcycles will thunder into Volo Saturday morning for the VooDoo A-Go-Go Show.


The rain-or-shine show, benefitting the American Cancer Society, will feature rockabilly bands, grilled food, flame shows, auctions, raffles, vendors and more. It is hosted by the VooDoo Kings Kustom Car Club of Northern Illinois, said Rob Weinberg, aka Voodoo Rob, of South Elgin.


Show cars will roll in starting at 9 a.m., and the show opens to the public from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the Volo Auto Museum grounds at 27582 Volo Village Road, Volo.


Lil’ Red & the Howlin’ Wolves, with VooDoo Larry, will be among the featured live musical performances.


Those entering a vehicle in the show will pay $20 and receive two wristbands for museum admission. All event proceeds will go to the cancer society, Weinberg said. Advance registration is requested, but not required. About 200 cars had registered by mid-week.


“We’re looking to raise $3,000 to $4,000,” Weinberg said. “Of course, we’d like to raise as much as possible …  we lost a member of our club to cancer. One of our club members just lost a sister. My uncle has Stage 4 cancer. It’s hit home pretty heavy in our club.”


Spectators will pay regular museum admission: free for members, $13.95 for adults; $8.95 for children 5 to 12; $11.95 for seniors 65 and older and for veterans and military personnel with ID; and free for children younger than 5 as well as military personnel in uniform.


“If you want to come see some of the coolest cars you’ll ever see, and some of the coolest people if you have questions about cars, you shouldn’t miss this,” Weinberg said. “We’ll have free Hotwheels ® for the first 100 kids who come, handmade trophies … the whole point of this is it’s for a great cause. Volo Auto Museum is a great venue, and it’s going to be a great time.”
