A variety of classic cars were on display at the Grand Central Mall in Vienna, West Virginia, over the weekend, as the Pioneer Antique Auto Club took up residence.
The club itself has been around for more than five decades and is made up of more than 200 members, according to the Marietta Times.
The oldest vehicle in attendance at the mall was a Ford Model A, originally built in 1931 and still surviving, thanks to the tireless preservation efforts of enthusiasts.
Spokesperson, Roy Meredith, said that many of the people in attendance from older generations were actually able to remember seeing these cars when they were new, although most are, of course, considered to be archaic antiques by modern standards.
It is not only vintage cars that featured in the show, but also more recent classics, including a 1975 Buick LeSabre.
The majority of the cars were from the General Motors stable, which shows just how much influence this manufacturer has had over American tastes and the national auto industry.
A trio of Ford trucks built in 1946 and all currently owned by the same man, were also on hand for public viewing and the event was considered a success.
