The annual Tinley Park Police Department's Cops 'n Rodders Show was finally held Sunday in the downtown area.
After being postponed three times this summer, the Tinley Park Cops 'n Rodders Show was finally held Sunday at the Oak Park Avenue Metra station, where scattered showers didn't discourage car enthusiasts from making a pit stop. Modern, classic and custom cars were on display, as well as public safety vehicles from area officials, including those from the Tinley Park Police Department.

Tom Miller, 58, of Tinley Park, is proud of the original steel body on his bright red 1934 Ford three-window coupe and he chafes when people ask who "made" what they assume is a fiberglass replica.
