Well, it rained, and it rained, and it rained, but the show must go on.
The 39th Annual Gettysburg Region antique car show at the Latimore Valley Fairgrounds on June 14th was preceded by days of downpours and flooding that would’ve sent Noah into a frenzy. Thank goodness, just when we thought we’d have to break out rowboats and Amphicars, the sun came out on Saturday! Sure, things were a bit soggy, but GRAACA members are not easily deterred and we ended up with a pretty good turnout.
This year’s featured class was the Mercury in celebration of Mercury’s 75th year. Of course, as always, a wide variety of vehicles were in attendance and the winner of this year’s President’s Award was a unique and rare 1926 Ajax.
There was an abundance of food including delicious desserts and homemade barbeque donated by our members as well as sundaes and French fries made fresh by the Lions Club. A special thanks goes out them for helping us year after year.
So, in spite of damp feet, the weather didn’t dampen our spirits. We came, ate, and of course enjoyed all the antique cars and trucks. There were lots of awards and new faces, and we can pray for better weather and an even better turnout at the 40th annual GRAACA car show. Hope to see you there!
