QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Downtown Quincy was filled with about 750 street rods that were on display for spectators of all ages to enjoy.

The Early Tin Dusters is celebrating its 37th year this weekend. Drivers came from 13 states to show off their pre-1949 classics. Tin dusters serves as a fundraiser, primarily for Camp Callahan. The last few years have raised an average of $14,000.

But this event also has an impact on the city of Quincy.

"All of our participants in this car show fill the stores and the hotels and the restaurants in they city of Quincy. And it helps the economy of the Quincy area," said Jim Albert, the co-chairman of the Rod Run.

Tin Dusters continues Sunday at Quincy's Upper Moorman Park from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., with the awards ceremony to follow at 2:30 p.m.
