    In less than two weeks, downtown Cynthiana will be transformed into a massive parking lot for some of the most beautiful and outrageous automobiles.
    The Cynthiana Rod Run was the brain child of local car enthusiast Jerry Adams. Adams said a few years ago at a Cynthiana City Commission that he loved Cynthiana and wanted to do this for the community.
    It has to be so.
    There is so much work behind the scenes to put on something of this class and size.

    One had done quite a bit of running, swimming, exploring and generally aggravating mothers by the first of August, and we kids were looking for new ways to use up the riches of no school and good weather.
