Club hosts East Coast car show

June 13, 2004|By CHRIS COPLEY

The Mason-Dixon chapter of the Antique Automobile Club of America is hosting the Eastern Divisional national meet from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, June 19. Auto enthusiasts will bring and display old vehicles of all types.

"We have 700 cars so far," said Les Adlesburger, Mason-Dixon president. "You'll see anything from gasoline-powered bicycles to steam cars to brass cars - no chrome. It's for cars that are 25 years and older."

That's the definition of antique, Addlesburger said: vehicles that are at least 25 years old. That includes vehicles built in the 1970s and earlier.

"We have cars from the '60s, probably a hundred of them," Adlesburger said. "And 20 Corvettes, nine Thunderbirds, muscle cars."

These recent vintages join older vehicles - more than three dozen Ford Model A and T cars, a long list of cars from the 1940s and several autos made in Hagerstown - on display outside at the Washington County Agricultural Education Center, seven miles south of Hagerstown on Md. 65. Car show admission is free.
