A Night With Cars

Do you have a significant other, male or female, who is maybe more into hot rods and football than wine and theater? And did you, perhaps over the holidays, drag said other to various events that he or she hated — maybe a nephew’s fifth-grade holiday play or a performance of The Nutcracker? Both? Wow, you’re mean. Well, here’s your chance to make it up to him/her. The 11th Full Throttle Show of Shows will be hosted by the Sheehan Autocomplex from 6 to 10 p.m. Saturday. At this annual event, your car enthusiast can register and display his/her vehicular love, including Pro-Mods, Alky, and Nitrous cars. There’s even a prize for Best in Show in each category. And not only will you be soothing your conscience about taking poor other to Christmas at Nana’s but you’ll know that the $20 registration fee is helping to support the Darrel Gwynn Foundation to find a cure for paralysis and to donate wheelchairs to those in need. The Sheehan Autocomplex is located at 2800 N. Federal Highway in Lighthouse Point. Call 954-410-5536, email edreidy@comcast.net, or visit darrellgwynnfoundation.org.

KEEP NEW TIMES BROWARD-PALM BEACH FREE... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Rebecca McBane is the arts and culture/food editor for New Times Broward-Palm Beach. She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
