Chrome, spokes, big tailfins and fuzzy dice. All were in evidence Saturday at Notre Dame High School during its second annual Antique & Classic Car Show.

About 40 vehicles -- ranging from an old, souped-up 1923 Model T to a brand new Fiat 500 -- were featured, catching the eye of car enthusiasts as well as Notre Dame students and families. There were also several local businesses in the mix offering products and services.

A highlight of the event was the raffling of a 1967 powder blue Ford Mustang.

The Rev. Bill Sangiovanni, president of Notre Dame, said of the show: "This is all being done to raise money for the Booster Club, Home School/Parents Association and the Drama Club. It's one of the most significant fundraisers we do all year. We had a great time last year and so brought it back this year."

In a class by itself was a 1962 Vietnam-era M-37 weapons carrier displayed by Westporter Jeff Susa. Though not a military veteran himself, many in Susa's family are, including his father who fought in World War II.
