GAS CITY, Ind. (AP) - A vendor selling racist signs and plaques has been permanently banned from a popular classic car show in Gas City.

Ducktail Run Rod & Classic Car Show organizer Mike Salter says the vendor was ordered off the premises after organizers saw a Facebook video that showed the booth selling signs reading “white only” and Colored seating in rear” as well as posters of black children eating watermelon.

He tells RTV6-TV that he and other organizers were furious that someone would sell such items at the event that attracts about 50,000 people a year to see nearly 2,500 classic automobiles. He says organizers have already talked about making sure vendor applications for next year’s show include specific language that prohibits displaying such items.
