Truly Nolen Pest Control recently hosted the company’s first-ever Community Car Show. The free event was open to the public and it featured over 50 of its late founder Truly David Nolen’s antique cars from seven decades in one spot. In addition, there were food trucks available on-site.
Among the cars featured were Mr. Nolen’s personal favorite 1957 Chevrolet Bel-Air, which was the car he drove to and from work and was shipped in from Naples, Fla. for this special day. Other antiques on display included a 1918 Ford Model T Roadster, a 1922 Ford Model T Speedster, 1930 Ford Model A, a 1940 Oldsmobile 4 Door Sedan, a 1960 Nash Metro, and a 1974 Volkswagen Bug.
Because the company enjoys adding value to the lives they touch, several local non-profits were on hand with displays about their organizations next to an antique they “paired” with for the day. Non-profits committed to the event included Big Brothers Big Sister of Tucson, TRAK, Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona, Ben’s Bells, American Heart Association, and Southern Arizona Women’s Foundation.
“The last conversation I had with my father before he passed away earlier this year was about doing an event that showcases a large portion of his collection in one place,” said Michelle Nolen Senner, longtime company employee. “He told me he liked the idea because people always want to sit in his cars and have their picture taken.”
