Classic car show planned this weekend in Raleigh

Posted August 14, 2012

The 3rd annual Carolina Classics at the Capital is a family-friendly event featuring hundreds of classic and show cars. 

The event will take over the Raleigh Convention Center starting Friday. 

Highlights of this year's event are a Ford Model-T assembly challenge and a visit from the "Lizard Lick Towing" gang on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. 

Last year's show drew about 40,000 people, according to event organizers. 

Admission is $10 per person. Children aged 7 to 12 years old get in for $5 each. And those 6 years and under get in for free.

A portion of the show's proceeds and money from a daily 50/50 raffle will be donated to the Foundation of Hope for Research and Treatment of Mental Illness.

Classic cars are a major attraction. A few weeks ago, we did a blogpost about Coffee and Cars events happening across the Triangle area.
