From Model T Fords, a 1958 Mercedes, Mustangs, and a Cobra kit to trucks and MGs, there was something for every taste in old jalopies.

Wayne Smith, site manager for North Hills Museum in Granville Ferry, was more than happy with the turnout for the museum's annual Vintage Auto Show Sunday. There were 63 vehicles perfectly parked on the groomed grass of the 250-year-old estate and scores of car enthusiasts there to take pictures and ask questions.

Smith said 63 entries is a record for the event. Although there was some threat of rain in the morning, the sun did come out and it was an almost perfect day for a car show.
