An array of vintage vehicles gleamed under brilliant summer skies Saturday as crowds ogled the classic rides showcased at the 2nd annual "Fired Up" Car Show.
The event, sponsored by the Southport Volunteer Fire Department Auxiliary, took place in the parking lot at Roger Ludlowe Middle School. It was open to all cars and trucks, with most of the entries clustered in the early 1900s and 1950s.
Proceeds from the show benefited the Southport volunteers.
In addition to approximately 50 cars on display, two bands, the Mertzes and Sidetract, performed.
One of the classic cars on display, competing for a "Best in Show" award, was Stratford residents Frank and Pat Wismer's 1910 Model T Ford. "The car has a whole different driving system to this car -- no gas pedal, just low and high gears," Frank said. "People find that fascinating."
