The Kanawha Boulevard Rod Run and Doo Wop has revved things up in downtown Charleston.

More than 800 cars from 16 states will be on display along Kanawha Boulevard through Sunday. "I live to work on them. I live to drive them. I like to work on them. I like to walk around and look at them. I live the creativity that people put into them for hours and hours," said John Smith.

Organizers expect around 100,000 people to attend this year's event. In addition to the cars, there are live concerts, food and vendors who've set up along Kanawha Boulevard. There will also be a huge post-concert fireworks display on Saturday night.
