Justin Sprinkle captures highlights of one of the most eclectic antique car shows
on the calendar.
The previous night’s storm didn’t seem to keep the cars and showgoers away from the 42nd Annual Sully Antique Car Show, presented by The George Washington Chapter of the Model A Club of America and the Fairfax County Park Authority. Held on the grounds of the Sully Historic Site in Chantilly, VA, the main house, outbuildings and rolling hills provide an amazing backdrop to roughly a century of automotive design and technology.
Mercury Woody, top, provides a cool foreground for a great car show. You would have never guessed that 12 hours earlier there were torrential downpours and hail in the area! I caught Kelly Buckland just as she was leaving in her Viking Blue ‘71 Olds 442, above. You’ve gotta love it! Even though the horsepower dropped to around 340 from the previous model’s 365, this Olds 442 was still more than enough to get your blood pumping!
