Moultrie- After three days of work these vendors are saying goodbye to South Georgia.

"We want to go do Superbowl in our hometown of Jacksonville, so we've got everything loaded up," says Freddy Sleffel.

Nearly 3,200 vendors from all over the country set up shop at Spence Field for the 29th annual Spring Auto Show and Car Corral. It's an event many car lovers have made a tradition.

"It was the best Saturday that we've ever had on a February show. So, the numbers were up, and we're real fortunate," says show coordinator Jerry Kelly.

A final tally of how many people attended won't be available for several days, but according to vendors the show was a complete success.

"We had a good weekend, great weather. We're grateful to Jerry and the rest of the staff, and we're going to keep coming back," Sleffel says.

"It seemed like a lot of people wanted the things that we were selling, so it seemed to be a pretty good show for us," adds Henry Schneider.

In addition to being able to buy auto parts, car enthusiasts were able to chose from over 1,300 vehicles for sale.
