Classic car lovers raced to Pantowners show

While the overwhelming majority of classic cars that most people get to see firsthand are parked on a clean piece of pavement somewhere (usually a parking lot or other designated area) with the engine off, this wasn’t the case at this past weekend.
No, there were more than a few classic car lovers and enthusiasts tearing up the pavement on their way to the major (and annual) Pantowners classic car show – speeding up and down Main Street (with the permission of the local authorities of course).
It was a rare glimpse at what these classic automobiles used to do when they were brand-new – or even just slightly used – and a chance to see some vintage muscle go tearing up the main drag like they may have decades and decades ago. Too many classic car owners are responsible for creating “show queens”, and it was really a sight for the local community and classic car enthusiasts who stop by the show to see these vehicles speed up and down with their paint gleaming in the sun.
A bit of a spontaneous performance, you may want to make sure that you don’t miss next year show if they decide to pull off an encore!
