Enthusiasts saw a wide variety of Brass Era cars, Depression Era classics and Post-War luxury and sports cars competing in 31 classes. “We’re especially excited for this year,” said Aaron Weiss, Co-Chair of the event. “People really enjoyed last year’s inaugural event so we’re building upon that to showcase even more cars this year and to let people see firsthand prominent parts of automobile history.”
