Car show revs up support for Notre Dame programs
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.
