    More than 50 antique cars lined up for the Kentucky Kruisers annual car show Saturday.

    Organizers this year decided to hold the show earlier in the summer and move it to the entrance of General Butler State Resort Park. Previously, the show was held in September at Point Park, but that location was in heavy demand.

    Brent Stucker, who has been president of the organization for six years, said the new location offers more shade and less competition with other events.
