Nearly 350 model cars and trucks lined the streets of downtown Great Falls on Saturday for the 13th annual Cruisin' The Drag Car Show.
While models came from all over the state, many of today's winners didn't have to come too far.
The Best in Show Car winner was a '38 Ford Coupe owned by David and Theresa Miller of Great Falls.
The Best in Show Truck, Best in Show Motorcycle, and the Best 60's and 70's Classics Winners were all also from Great Falls.
However, a few visitors still took home a prize. The Lutz's of Lewistown won Best 40's and Older Classic with their '49 Jeepster.
