DU QUOIN, IL (KFVS)- A legendary event makes its way back into Du Quoin after a 13 year absence.
The Car Craft Magazine Street Machine Nationals features hundreds of classic cars but has a history of creating a mess for the city.
"It got to be a crazy time, it was out of control really," said car enthusiast James Smith.
Known for its hardcore horsepower, cool classic cars with plenty of big block engines, the Car Craft Magazine Street Machine Nationals brings out the biggest car enthusiasts.
"It's just a really good time to see all of the cars, thousands and thousands of cars gather in one area, it's just hard to believe," said Smith.
But police say it also brings out the biggest problems the city has ever had to deal with, from drunken tirades to property destruction and public nudity.
