Cars, guitars and veterans are what this weekend's big Houston auto event is all about. The fourth annual Guitars N' Cars show will rock the city this Saturday, Oct. 4, at Sam Houston Race Park, and it is bringing together some all-American favorites to honor and raise funds to support our country's servicemen and women living in the Houston area.
From noon to 5 p.m., rain or shine, the Guitars N' Cars Auto Show, put on by the Houston Construction Industry Charities, is open to the public. There will be an array of stunning cars on display, from classics, hot rods and muscle cars to exotics, as well as the official Gibson Tour Bus. Having chauffeured celebrities and rock stars, the Gibson bus will be open for visitors to get an inside peek into the lap of rock-legend luxury.
