The 1st Annual Freedom Car Show featuring vehicles with adaptive modifications. Subscribe to get the latest details!
Thank you for attending the 1st Annual Freedom Car show! We'll see you again next year!
The first annual car show featuring vehicles that have been modified with adaptive equipment. There will be vehicle related vendors, first responders, food vendors, live music, and of course – trophies! Come and see cars that have been modified in ways you’ve never seen before.
The purpose of the car show is to educate first responders and the public, provide awareness, and raise money to help people with disabilities get the vehicle modifications they need to be mobile.
Although the freedom car show is featuring vehicles with accessible equipment modifications, we want all car, truck and bike enthusiasts to join us. If its unique or unusual we want to see it. All years, makes, and models welcome!
After all, this event is to raise money for accessible modifications for people with disabilities who cannot afford them. What better way to help your brothers and sisters in wheels to become mobile by showing off your ride, winning trophies, and having fun. And if you want to see car modifications you've never seen before, you don't want to miss it!
The official date has not been set and registration has not begun. Planning is currently underway. This page will be updated once plans have been finalized, so check back often or subscribe below to be one of the first to know the latest news and information.
Established under federal and state legislation, WVSILC functions both independently and as a partner with the West Virginia Independence Network (WIN) and the West Virginia Division Of Rehabilitation Services (WVDRS) to ensure that West Virginians with disabilities have access to Community-Based Resources that promote personal choice and facilitate the achievement of their Independent Living goals.
The WIN has 3 Centers throughout the state; Appalachian Center for Independent Living, Mountain State Center for Independent Living, and LiveAbility (formerly Northern WV Center for Independent Living). The network provides Independent Living Services under the State-funded Community Living Services Program (CLSP).
CLSP assists individuals with disabilities to function more independently in their homes and communities. Funded under the State Plan for Independent Living with State and Federal Independent Living dollars to support West Virginians with Disabilities, CLSP services include:
Due to the disproportionate number of people with disabilities in WV, the wait to receive services from CLSP is a mind-numbing 3 to 5 years. Additionally, available funding first goes to home modifications and other items supported by the program. If any funding remains, vehicle modifications will then be addressed. There is rarely any funding remaining for vehicle modifications, which represents freedom, or lack of, for people with disabilities.
All proceeds generated from the car show will be used solely for vehicle modifications for people with disabilities. If you are unable to attend or sponsor the car show, please consider giving to CLSP through our GoFundMe Campaign so the program can provide freedom to people with disabilities who have no means of transportation for lack of adaptive equipment.
