This is the sixth year the Myra Museum in Grand Forks will hold the event History Rocks celebrating classic rock and roll music and this year, the oldest car registered in North Dakota.

"Hopefully tomorrow our friends down at Valley City museum will be able to bring their 1901 Oldsmobile, that's not something you see very often at all."Historical Society Director Leah Byzewski said.

Organizers say this event has grown over the years and people come from all over to show off their cars, and learn about others.

The Grand Forks police department donated a 1965 Ford Galaxie to the museum and tomorrow will bring classics from many different eras.

"There'll be cars form the 50's and 60's, even some modern classics now, the new Camaro made it's debut last year. So we're wide open and just about having a good time." Byzewski said.

Six years ago there were just under ten people showing their cars but last year that number grew to over 90. People involved in the car show say every year it gets more exciting.

"Meet old friends, see cars we haven't seen before, cars from out of town. My wife and I have a very modified 62' Austin Healey with an engine in it about 4 and 1/4 horse. It's well modified and we just have a lot of good times with it." classic car owner Skip Narum said.

With such a wide variety of cars, music and food the event seems to have something for everyone.

The event runs from 1 to 4 p.m. tomorrow with music from Kenny and the Classics. Admission is 5 dollars and kids under 12 get in free.
