ALLIANCE − An early threat of rain Saturday didn’t deter car lovers or owners from coming out for the Greater Alliance Carnation Festival’s Car Show at Glamorgan Castle.

Hundreds of classic cars and trucks, hot rods and customs were on display. Also on hand were food vendors, military vehicles, and a Sept. 11, 2001, display.

Bob Dailey, 70, of Alliance showed his orange and white 1958 Edsel Pacer, a car he’s owned for 40 years. It’s only had two owners.

Dailey said he comes every year to the auto show.

“It’s always a nice, big show with something new to see,” the retiree said. “This is social time when you’re retired. You get to meet so many nice people.”

Rich Vicencio, 67, of Canton brought his custom 1920 Ford T Bucket to the show for the first time.

“It looked like rain,” he said, sitting near his car. “I didn’t think there would be that many people who’d come. It looked bad.”
