Best of Show owner revved up by fundraisers

Tim “T.J.’’ Mesmer has won his share of awards the past six years as owner of a beautiful 1970 Plymouth Hemi ‘Cuda Convertible. Accepting them at fund-raising events is even more rewarding. 

That was the case on April 10 as Mesmer’s Limelight Green ‘Cuda, with its iconic Shaker hood scoop, was judged Best of Show at the San Jose Car & Truck Show, held at Dupont Station Shopping Center. 

The sixth annual event, held on a comfortable sun-kissed morning, had a strong field of 61 vehicles and arguably its biggest crowd. Combined with solid support from sponsors, the show raised $8,616 for the Bishop John J. Snyder Community Center at nearby San Jose Apartments for seniors.
