"Nikki Ervin Featured in National Magazine - 1994"


Frog Follies 1993... first TSGS Cruiser Blog Photo Contest Winner - 2009

Little 5-year-old Nikki Ervin, as the 1993 Easter Seals Representative, was featured in a story in the January 1994 edition of Street Rodder magazine, page 41. Nikki is shown in the top two photos on the page in the magazine (second picture below). As always, click on photos to get a larger image. This photo of the page inside Street Rodder is my favorite for the TSGS Cruiser Frog Follies Photo Contest! This one plus some others will be the blog for tomorrow for the photo contest. It is going to be a hard task selecting about 6 more photos from the great ones submitted so far... and more will be coming in!

The Eville Iron & Street Rod Club sponsors the annual Frog Follies Antique Car Show at the Vanderburgh 4-H Center. And 2009 is its 35th. Anniversary! As in this photo story back in 1993, the proceeds go to several local charities of which Easter Seals is the largest. Nikki is seen in her wheel chair with a group from the street rod club in the very top picture. in the second picture, Nikki is in the driver seat of a hot rod that is her size - a minature of the full-sized one just behind it.

Nikki is the adopted daughter of Don & Betty Counts.
