The MAAC 42nd Annual Car Show

The 4th of July is a celebration of our Nations birthday, but it also means there will be plenty of classic cars!

The weekend started on Friday with Mountaineer Antique Auto Club hosting their 42nd Annual Car show and Swap Meet. This three day event was one of the most dynamic events I've attended this year! The events swap meet covered the venue with over 500 vendors with parts and supplies, and collector car owners from across the state traveled the distance to find a specific part to complete their restoration.

The car corral brought in approximately 250 classic to buy and sell. Among the unique collection of cars was a '65 Amphicar in remarkable running condition. Other cars included muscle cars, trucks, resto-mods and a couple newer classics.

The car show was another part of this event, and over 250 classics registered. Classic cars cruised in from neighboring states to participate in the three day event. The show had early era Fords, pickups, street rods, muscle cars and more.

The event only cost $5 for spectators, and free for children 11 and younger. The MAAC organized a great event, and everywhere you turned there were a club member to answer questions. I would encouage car enthusiast to venture over to next year's event. Please visit http://www.mountaineerantiqueautoclub.com/ for additional information on next year's event.

Congratulations to the Mountaineer Antique Auto Club on a successful event!
