Classy Classics

Do not miss the chance to get up close and personal with these great classic cars before you have to pay for the view at Shore Acres!

Where were you in '62, maybe in the backseat of one of these or if you are too young to know about submarine races and backseats maybe you saw American Graffiti? It doesn't matter the memories these great vehicles made and the anticipation each model change created brought the Soundtrak of the Sixties to life.

Even before there was Rock'n'Roll there were great cars and now you can see them and not just have to dream about them.

Join the rest of the cats and chicks at Baycrest Village. Have a burger, have a float cause the Wolfman would be there if he could, Ya'll come hear?
