ALAMANCE REGION’S 50TH ANNUAL ANTIQUE CAR SHOW

Our 50th Annual Antique Car Show was held on May 21, 2022 in Downtown Burlington, NC.  We had a great time checking out all of the beautiful vehicles at the show, and the weather was fantastic! 

We would like to thank all of the sponsors that made our show possible!  Please take visit our sponsors and mention that you saw their ad on our website.  Sponsorship supports the show and club expenses, as well as a $1000 scholarship to the Automotive Program at Alamance Community College each year!

Otis Thomas “O.T.” Smith, Sr

July 30, 1937 – May 16, 2022

 We are sad to announce the passing of longtime Alamance Region member O.T. Smith. We will miss O.T’s big smile, and hearty handshake.  He and Sylvia served the Alamance Region in many capacities over the years. Our prayers go out to his brother Floyd and sister-in-law Elsie, as well as his son Tommy and daughter-in-law Kellie.

October 30  Tour to S&T Soda Shop in Pittsboro!  37 members and friends  met at the Carli C’s in Graham, and enjoyed a beautiful morning tour to Pittsboro.  Lunch at the S&T Soda Shop was really good, but the ice cream was even better!  One scoop was all I could handle.  After a tour of the street festival, and a walk back to the parking area, our club members made their way back home on their own time.  We had great participation on this mini tour, and everyone had a great time.  Thanks to Henry Gaither for setting up this activity!

Charlie Humble and Gage Hutchins loving the rumble seat!

 

Jerry Whitfield of the Old Salem Chapter, NC Region sent in these photos of his unique and beautiful 1956 Plymouth Sport Suburban station wagon from his recent “single car tour” to a truly unique location: the old Shell filling station in Winston Salem.  This unique building is on the National Register of Historic Places, and is the sole surviving structure of the eight original shell shaped stations built in the 1930’s.   If you are looking for an awesome photo op for your car, you can find this Shell station at Sprague and Peachtree Streets in Winston-Salem.  The site is owned and maintained as a (very small) museum by Preservation North Carolina.  Thanks for sending in these awesome pictures Jerry!
