C.A.R.S. Club, or College Automotive Restoration Students, is a student led club open to any McPherson student interested in antique and collector cars. The club gives students an opportunity to get together and share their passion for automobiles outside of the classroom. Club members are able to participate in numerous events throughout the year, including car shows, cruises, travel, old car movie nights, and insider trips to museums and private collections.

The culmination of the year is the student led C.A.R.S. Show in the Spring, where students plan their own large car show unlike anything else in the area, attracting participants from around the country.
