FRANKLIN TWP — A blaring siren called out over a crowd of people perusing car parts, pieces and other items that make those special classic cars run, purr and growl.
The siren belonged to a 1973 Cadillac Miller Meteor ambulance owned by former Butler resident Tom Slimick, now of Marienville.
“I’ve received an overwhelming response,” said Slimick, who played the part of a tour guide as groups of people arrived to inspect the classic vehicle.
Slimick’s ambulance was part of the Car Corral, a special feature Sunday, the final day of the Big Butler Parts-A-Rama auto part swap meet hosted at the Big Butler Fairgrounds.
