Enjoy a day with Dad and Granddad peeking under the hoods of the cars they remember
from their youth at the Shelton Historical Society’s Vintage Vehicles Antique and Classic Car
Show on Father’s Day, Sunday, June 18. Two wheels or four, from Model T’s to muscle cars,
there’s bound to be something that will trigger a memory from every visitor. This annual event
will take place at Shelton History Center, 70 Ripton Rd. from 10:00 a.m.- 2:00 p.m.
Past shows have featured everything from a 1928 Rolls Royce Phantom, to a restored
rickshaw that was used as an ambulance in the San Francisco earthquake in 1906, to a 1911
wood paneled Model T. Sometimes a fire truck shows up; a 2016 entry included a penny
farthing, or high-wheeled bicycle. Nearly every decade of transportation history from the 20th
century has been illustrated on the shaded grounds of the Shelton History Center with more
recent muscle cars, Mustangs, and Army Jeeps joining many Ford Model A’s and T’s. All
vehicle owners generously share information, their cars, and their hobby with the public.
A new award category for Most Unique was added for this year so six prizes will be presented
to crowd favorites.
Visitors will enjoy refreshments and voting for their favorite vehicles. Admission is $1
for dads, $5/adults and $10/family of four. Proceeds will benefit the educational programs of the
Shelton Historical Society, whose mission is to “preserve elements of the community’s history in
order to create connections between Shelton’s past, present, and future generations through
education, maintaining a museum with its collections, and providing a voice in the community
regarding matters of historical significance.”
