Alexandria car show sparkles

Classic cars with sparkling chrome and vibrant paint jobs lured hundreds of people to the Vintage Car Club of Alexandria's 23rd annual Car Show and Swap Meet at the Douglas County Fairgrounds on Sunday. Everything from Studebakers to Mustangs were on display. Across the display area, hoods were popped open for a closer look at engines and a few were revved up for the crowd. Classic car enthusiasts of all ages mingled amongst the vehicles and "talked shop." The swap meet section of the show grounds was a collection of car parts and shoppers were hunting for must-have items. Results from the car show were not available at press time.
