Quad City’s Vintage Rods recently donated $3,000 to the Black Hawk College Quad Cities Foundation to support a student scholarship.

Since 1984, the car club has given more than $66,500 to the foundation and has donated to the college for more consecutive years than any other organization.

The donations are generated by gate admissions to the group’s annual car show held every fall at the college’s Quad-Cities Campus.

The 43rd Quad City’s Vintage Rods Annual Car Show was Sept. 28, 2014, and attracted more than 450 registered antique cars, hot rods, street rods and special interest vehicles. Approximately 1,200 adult spectators attended the event.

The donation supports the Vintage Rods scholarship, which is available to Quad-Cities Campus students with excellent academic performance. Four students received a scholarship in Fall 2014, four students received a scholarship in Fall 2013, and five students received a scholarship in Fall 2012.
