Considered a breakthrough automobile in the postwar period, the featured sports touring car was considered one of the sleekest and fastest of its time traveling at speeds of nearly 150 mph. The show will present model SN1083L, built in 1962 and one of only 28 left-hand drive convertibles manufactured.

While not an officially judged show this year, all persons attending the show will be invited to vote in several categories including People's Choice, Women's Choice, and The Car I Would Love to Drive Home In.

The show runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. General admission is $12; active service members and their immediate family, and veterans will be admitted free of charge. Other admission discounts are offered.
