  • The Hagley Car Show returned on Sunday, Sept. 16, where more than 600 antique cars, trucks, and motorcycles vehicles were on display. This year's focus was the pick-up truck, with featured selections that included examples of the earliest American pickup trucks.
     
    The earliest vehicles resembling today's pickup trucks were produced for the military during World War I. Both Chevy and Dodge were producing pickup trucks for the public by 1918.
     
    In addition to perusing the antique trucks and cars on display, visitors also tried pedal-powered go-kart racing and NASCAR simulators, watched vehicle parades, enjoyed motoring music and festival food, and relished in the sounds of a room full of fabulous operating vintage jukeboxes.
