Essex Antique and Classic Car Show Moved to July 4

Essex, CT
— Citing problems with unpredictable weather for the past few years with a fall show date, the Essex Automobile Club has announced plans to present its 5th Annual Antique and Classic Car Show on Wednesday, July 4.  Various classes of pre-war cars, muscle cars, foreign sports cars, exotics and others will be on display for public viewing from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm at Hubbard Field located at 75 North Main Street in Essex.

According to EAC Co-founder Tim Lynch, “Our annual show has been growing in popularity and support among car collectors and the public.  Unfortunately, the weather has not been equally supportive.  So, we decided to hold the show in the summer, and thought, ‘what better time and place then the 4th of July in the Best Small Town in America…Essex!’ “

EAC Co-founder Wes Bray added, “The club is proud to continue our tradition of donating a portion of the proceeds from the show to Child and Family Agency of Southeastern Connecticut so we hope for good weather and a great turn out.”

People’s Choice Awards will be given to the first and second place entries in multiple domestic and foreign car categories.  Admission is $5.00 per person with children under age 12 admitted free.  Information for owners of antique (pre-1982) or exotic cars who would like to enter the show should go to www.essexautoclub.com or send an email to “tim@essexautoclub.com”.
