The 1948 Ford Deluxe Coupe owned by Canyon Lake resident Paul Kakis won him a People’s Choice award at the 20th annual Perris Rods and Rails Extravaganza on June 8 at the Orange Empire Railway Museum. At the Temecula Rod Run in March, Paul won a Best Custom Hot Rod award.
The car has won Paul more than 10 awards since he purchased it six years ago. The next car show he plans to enter is the annual Canyon Lake Car Show in October.
In addition to entering about five car shows per year, Paul directs the annual Lamb’s Fellowship Car and Motorcycle show to help raise funds for children’s ministries.
