Vintage Vehicles Antique & Classic Car Show June 18 at Shelton History Center

 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.”
