Lorain classic car show supports the center for the elderly
The Lorain Community Senior Center welcomed vintage car enthusiasts on August 22 for their All Start Vintage Car Show.
A collection of vintage cars, including classic Ford Model T’s from the late 1920s, muscle cars and trucks, were parked to support a good cause.
The event included People’s Choice Awards, raffles and door prizes accompanied by a DJ and refreshments, all in support of the Lorain Community Senior Center and the programs and services they provide to local residents at 3361 , Garfield Boulevard.
Kevin Myers from Lorain brought a 1973 Buick Century Regal, bought in 2014 with only 46,012 miles from the original owner who bought it new from Joyce Buick in Lorain. In a written description of the vehicle, Meyers wrote that he had his eye on the car for four years before he finally had a chance to buy it.
Assembled in Flint with a purchase price of $ 3,700 in 1973, the two-door Buick Century Regal hardtop was the first generation of their 1973 thru 1977 luxury car lineup.
Other attendees brought in the humorous side of classic vehicles, with a classic truck fitted with skeletons under the hood and in the passenger seat, with a license plate stating “when all else fails, read the directions”.
