Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - Northland motorheads got their fix Saturday during the Dennis Godfrey Memorial Car Show at Lake Superior College, in Duluth.

The event is held in memory of Dennis Godfrey, a car tech and auto–instructor who helped found the car show eight years ago.

Since his death, family and friends have honored his memory and kept the auto show rolling while featuring his signature orange GTO, "The Judge".

Car enthusiasts enjoyed a colorful display of classic muscle cars, along with some experimental vehicles to boot.

Relatives of Dennis say the car show is a great way to keep the love for classic cars alive and well in the younger generation.

"The classic cars, the muscle cars, all of that," listed Marie & Alison Godfrey, "and bring it from the past right up to the present; to keep that history of cars alive."

"Alumni... continue to come back," said Godfrey's daughter Kristen Godfrey Walters, "and then also the newer students coming and getting to show their cars that they're currently working on."

As part of his enduring legacy, the Lake Superior College Foundation offers a scholarship for the autotech program in Dennis Godfrey's name.
