The city of Cary, North Carolina, is getting ready to host a brand new classic car show this weekend, which is good news for any auto fans in the area.
The Wheels on Academy event is being funded by the local council and it is part of a wider initiative being run by the city, to encourage visitors to come more regularly.
Council spokesperson, Don Frantz, said that he was excited to see the various classic cars and custom hotrods which will be lining the edges of Academy Street this month.
Mr Frantz is a classic car enthusiast himself and will be bringing along a Camaro, which he restored from scratch, to add to the festivities.
A total of 150 different vehicles are already confirmed to attend the event, although there is still time for late sign ups, should there be any newcomers who want to get involved.
As well as the cars themselves, there will be various exhibits and events dedicated to all things automotive, from vehicular art to historical information.
Around $6600 is being spent on the running of the event, with two thirds coming from the council and the rest being supplied by local businesses.
