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.

Muscle cars and horsepower go together like shoes and shoelaces. But what made these eye-blink-quick chariots so unique was that few, if any, began as purpose-built performance cars. Unlike Jaguar XKEs, Ferraris or even Corvettes, nearly all muscle cars began as simple A-to-B family coupes that were originally designed as economical versions of their full-sized siblings. This philosophy certainly holds true with the potent Chevelle SS 396. This car's roots date back to the autumn of 1963 when the Chevelle was launched as Chevrolet's first intermediate "A-body" car. The Chevelle was built to fill a niche that was half-way between the compact Chevy II that was introduced in 1962 and the full-size bread-and-butter Chevrolet Biscayne, Bel Air and Impala models.

andrews@herald-mail.com PENNSYLVANIA - Candy flew from everywhere. From floats, from muscle cars, from trucks, from people walking the parade route and dipping into baskets for liberal handfuls. It was an early touch of Christmas in Greencastle and children were grabbing it. They were stuffing sweets into whatever bags or other receptacles they could find. Four young children from the Perini families of Washington County kept their bounty in their hats. The sun provided light Saturday morning, but for heat, it was outmatched by a biting wind.

Dave George bought his 1966 Dodge Coronet brand new at the former Central Motors Dodge of Hagerstown in 1966. In the 45 years since, Central Motors, the oldest continuously run Dodge dealer in the nation until 1996, lost value and ultimately closed, but George's merchandise has appreciated in value. George, of Waynesboro, Pa., said he bought the car for $3,900 in 1966, and has only logged 32,000 miles on it. It still sports a showroom shine with the original 426 Hemi powerplant under the hood.

SHARPSBURG - Fine art, muscle cars and fried food might sound like unlikely companions. Even so, the three worked as a complementary trio in the case of the Mighty Mo Car Show and Reunion Saturday at Antietam Gallery. Antietam Gallery owner Jim Kehoe and street rod photo artist Thomas O. Nichols teamed up to create an artistic rendering of the drive-up diners and hot-rod cars of their high school days in Prince George's County, Md. They celebrated the release of the limited edition print, titled "There's a Moon Out Tonight: A Tribute to the Mighty Mo," last November with an "everything '60s" car show and reunion.

If classic cars had dances, Saturday night might have been the prom. As teenagers spend time, care and money on alterations, makeovers and workouts before the big night, classic car owners have spent the past weeks and months committed to arduous sessions of tweaking, buffing, polishing, tuning and overhauling their vehicles. And finally, the evening of Saturday, April 8, owners paraded the motorized objects of their affection into the parking lot at Valley Mall for the 2006 season's first Classic Car Group for Children Kruz-N.
