A rural Devils Lake man is spending most of his winter touring the country with his classic car.

Stan Orness is one of 10 vintage car-owners chosen to show his 1951 Mercury at the Auto-rama Cavalcade of Custom Cars show in Detroit.

Orness was chosen by last year's Auto-rama builder of the year, Chuck Miller.

He says he became interested in the cars while he was working at his dad's shop in Valley City in the 50's.

"I could envy them and their hotrods and their cars and the 50's was hotrod time and I guess I've been with it ever since," explained Orness.

Orness is also working on plans for the annual Devils Run that will be held the weekend of June 4th.
