About Joe


Joe Jones was a long standing member of Friendship United Methodist Church and the surrounding community with his wife, Nancy. Joe was a hard and diligent worker, made evident by the fact he was a US Marine and worked for Gilbarco for over 40 years.  Joe had a love for cars, especially old cars. He loved to work on them and spend time in his shop. His real love was his 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air. He worked on his '55 for years along side his friends. Joe never got to show his '55 before his untimely passing in April of 2023. This car show is in memory of Mr. Joe and his contribution to those around him. We look to have this annual car show to give his community the opportunity to share the cars they love with their friends.
