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.
