On their way to participate in last Friday's Show & Shine Dam Cruz at 3 p.m. in Orofino City Park, Bev and Kyle Latham stopped by the Clearwater Tribune to share some fun information about their 1958 Chevy Impala. The car won second runner up in the custom modified cars category at the "Lost in the 50's" car show in Sandpoint on May 21. There were approximately 585 cars in the show. Entertainment included a large dance, as well as a separate show with an Elvis impersonator and an even better Jerry Lee Lewis impersonator, along with other great acts. "What a surprise to win an award at that show!" said Bev.
