Antique Car Gallery features vintage vehicles, motorcycles and firetrucks

The weekend forecast is for scattered rain and thunderstorms, but it won’t disrupt the antique auto show scheduled for Saturday on the streets of downtown New Bern.

Zach Simmons, president of First Capital Chapter at Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA), said he’s been in shows for 20 years and hasn’t canceled the show yet due to rain. He does not plan to start this year.

Parts of Middle, Pollock and Craven Streets will be closed to motorists starting at 10 a.m., as the streets line up with precious cars ranging from century-old “Tin Lizzies” to supercharged ’90s muscle cars.

“There will be cruisers, foreign cars, hot rods, pickup trucks and military motorcycles,” Simmons said. “We also have a Morris, which is a rare car today.”
