BOONSBORO - The Boonsboro Historical Society will sponsor its annual antique car show in conjunction with Boonesborough Days on Sunday, Sept. 7.
The show at Shafer Park will be managed by the Blue & Grey Chapter of the Model T Ford Club of America.
This year's feature car will be a 1927 Model T Ford pickup truck. The truck is owned by Frank and Derek Artz of Washington County. The truck was purchased new in 1927 at Newman's Garage in Smithsburg. Unique to this original condition pickup is the fact that it has remained in the Artz family for five generations. Members of the Artz family will be present to share additional information on the truck's local history with show visitors.
Last year's show featured 90 cars from four states. Show organizers encourage local owners of antique cars (at least 25 years old - absolutely no modified cars, please) to participate even though they may not belong to an organized club. The invitation comes from the Boonsboro Historical Society and the Blue & Grey Model T Ford Club.
