BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – The Friday Night Locker Room’s Steve Wilson was at the “Celebration of Cars” Antique to Modern Auto Show and interviewed special guest Dennis Gage of the TV show My Classic Car. The car show was on the lot of the American Muscle Car Museum in Melbourne and drew a huge crowd.
The annual event was sponsored by the Antique Automobile Club of Cape Canaveral which is the local affiliate of the Antique Automobile Club of America.
The festival this year featured “The Fabulous Fifties” – a tribute to the fins and chrome of vehicles built between 1950 and 1959.
More than 500 1950s vehicles were on display for a capacity crowd to enjoy.
This year’s celebrity guest was Dennis Gage known for his popular long-running TV show, “My Classic Car,” and Gage was available for photos, autographs, and special award presentations.
The American Muscle Car Museum opened its doors to the public for this event.
Families were invited to the outdoor event which last year attracted more than 1,000 spectators.
Attendees enjoyed food vendors, a Kids Korner of games, activities and face painting along with displays of award-winning cars.
The AACCC, a non-profit 501C-4 organization, uses the proceeds from the event to support the club’s activities and local charities such as the South Brevard Sharing Center, Space Coast Honor Flight, and Public Schools Automotive Technical Program Scholarships.
The AACCC, founded in 1964 by four auto enthusiasts dedicated to the preservation and restoration of antique and classic automobiles, has grown to more than 100 members.
In 1984, the club was granted a charter by the Antique Automobile Club of America, a national organization of nearly 80,000 members.
Today, the AACCC continues its affiliation as an AACA chapter in the Cape Canaveral region.
