"I will just walk up to anyone and start a conversation," Sefton said. "I enjoy listening to stories and enjoy learning the history of these cars."
More than 1,000 vintage cars will line the Kanawha Boulevard this weekend. The line begins at Haddad Riverfront Park and stretches to Magic Island.
Trucks are part of the show as well.
While many of the automobiles are vintage, some are more modern.
Dave Lambert of Beckley brought his full-size Chevrolet truck that he has turned into a memorial for the 29 miners that died in the Upper Big Branch coal mine explosion on April 5, 2010.
It took Lambert three years to get all of the details finished. He has all of the miners' faces and names painted on the sides of his truck.
Lambert was a miner employed at the Upper Big Branch Mine in Montcoal. He was supposed to be underground with the miners that day but wasn't because there was no ride down at the time.
"Those guys never came back out. They were all like family to me," Lambert said. "I had a sports car and decided to go trade it for a truck because I had an idea to do all this detail work and memorialize these men. I consider this their truck, not mine."
Lambert has shown his truck at many car shows around the country. He has won several trophies and plans to place the truck in the coal museum in Madison for permanent display.
The Rod Run and Doo Wop will continue through Sunday. A fireworks display is slated for 9:15 p.m. Saturday.
