The Troy Kiwanis Club had it's biggest hot rod turnout at the third annual "Best in Alabama" car show. 

Thi weekend at Ken Cox Ford, 50 classic cars and their owners came to Troy from across the state.

All the money raised will help fight maternal and neonatal tetanus in the U.S. and developing countries.

"Tetanus is deadly. In our country, it's not a big problem, because most of us get our vaccinations and our shots, but in the developing world, people are born with tetanus and it's fatal for a lot of people," said Troy Kiwanis member Caleb Dawson. "So it's conceivable that our organization can vaccinate everybody in the world."

Based on Saturday's car entries, organizers say they'll be able to provide 400 tetanus vaccines.
