Vintage vehicles once again ruled the roadway in downtown Waynesboro for Mainstreet Waynesboro Inc.'s 11th annual Classic Car & Truck Show on Saturday. About five blocks of Pa. 16 was closed to traffic so several thousand car and truck enthusiasts could stroll past the 160 automobiles on display. “I had a bunch of these cars, not this nice,” John Marzullo said referring to a Falcon and Camaro. The Orrstown, Pa., man and his children, Daren, 12, and Annie, 16, were in the area to purchase a load of dirt when they spotted the car show and couldn't resist stopping.

Just about everybody at a car show has a story to tell. Some are more poignant than others. For years, Wayne and Susan Heinbaugh of St. Thomas, Pa., were fixtures in the car-show circuit. They would polish up their purple and white 1979 and 1973 Corvettes until they sparkled, said the Heinbaughs' son, Steve Heinbaugh. But that stopped two years ago. On Aug. 14, 2011, Wayne lost his battle with pancreatic cancer and Susan just couldn't continue showing their cars without him. So the cars stayed in the garage until the Antrim Brethren in Christ Church Cruz-in Car Show on Saturday.
