A light mist that fell off and on Saturday didn’t dampen enthusiasm for the Auto Fair at Chantilly Farms on Franklin Pike Saturday as hot rods, custom cars and even a dragster or two gathered for display to enthusiasts.
Mixed among the street rods were custom VW bugs, a Jeep CJ, a restored Railway Express Truck and an assortment of American iron, including Corvettes, Mustangs, Shelby Mustangs, GTOs, GMC and MoPar muscle cars. Even spotted an MG B and other British and European sports cars.
A benefit ride for Floyd County’s Fire Department Station 1 helped bring two-wheelers to the event as well.
Some of the cars were for sale and potential buyers haggled with owners while vendors offered parts, food, crafts and car-related memorabilia.
Even with the dampness, a good time and a good kickoff for an event that organizers hope will become an annual attraction.
Chantilly Farms is becoming a popular multi-use venue.
