Car Show

Joe Mazzeo poses with his 1936 Auburn Boattail Roadster Replica and Glen Nickerson, Sun Publisher, who chose it as his favorite car of the show last year.

It’s back.

The 12th annual Collector Car Show & Open House is from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. today at the Charlotte Sun, 23170 Harborview Road, in Port Charlotte.

And from 10 a.m. to noon, you can see how the Sun newspaper operates during a tour of the office and plant.

Admission and parking are free. Food and beverages will also be available, along with live entertainment.

The show is open to only non-modified cars, trucks and motorcycles that are at least 24 years old, along with any year reproduction or race cars.

Owners pre-register and there is no registration fee, but the event is limited to up to 100 vehicles.

Fifteen Ferrari cars are slated to be on hand, along with 2019 vehicle models. In the end, 20 trophies will be awarded.

Students and instructors with Charlotte Technical College Automotive Training Department will be on hand to answer questions about modern vehicles.

Charlotte County Tax Collector Vickie Potts and staff will also be in attendance to answer questions about motor vehicle titles and registration.

Other groups expected include consignment and auction specialists, and the Peace River Wildlife Center.
