ALTON — A long-running southwestern Illinois car show was canceled after only a dozen classic cars showed up to go on display.

Organizers of Sunday's All-Wheels Drive-In Car Show in Alton tell The Telegraph that they couldn't afford to run the 16-year-old event with so few entrants.

Typically, about 150 classic cars, hot rods and other vehicles are displayed.

The annual car show raises money for Alton Main Street and Time Machines Unlimited Car Club.

Organizers tell the newspaper they plan to reschedule for late July and are hoping for a better turnout.
