Collector cars of many eras can be viewed on Saturday, September 21 at the 38th annual Edgar Rohr Memorial Antique Car Meet in Manassas, Va.  The show, on the grounds of the Manassas Museum, 9101 Prince William St., will feature antique cars, trucks and motorcycles, plus street rods and customized cars.  Last year 167 vehicles were displayed.  The event will run from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM.  Spectator admission is free, with free garage parking available just across the street.  The gathering will take place "rain or shine". 
 
The car meet includes a flea market and a "car corral" displaying cars for sale, as well as a silent auction and the Museum store's sidewalk sale.  The show is sponsored by the Bull Run Region of the Antique Automobile Club of America.
 
Every driver entering a car in the show will receive one free admission ticket to the Museum as well as an opportunity to win door prizes.  A team of antique car hobbyists will entertain spectators at noon and 2:00 PM by assembling a Model T Ford from its component parts and then driving the car away, all in a matter of a few minutes.  Sixty-four awards, in eight categories, will be presented to car owners at 3:00 P.M.
 
While at the show visitors can take in historic Old Town Manassas, with its many unique shops, patronize the outdoor farmer's market and enjoy the tenth annual Old World Festival -- all within two or three blocks of the car show.  The Museum is an attraction in itself, providing a fascinating glimpse of the area's history. 
 
Complete information on the show can be found at www.bullrunaaca.org . Show cars may be registered on the day of the event, but a discount is offered for registrations made by September 16.  The show field entrance is located on Liberty Street at its intersection with Prince William St.  Additional information is available by phoning Jon Battle at (540) 364-1770 or e-mailing him at terraplane@verizon.net .
