Local dads had the chance to spend their special day checking out classic cars in Hermitage.

Car enthusiasts gathered on East State Street on Sunday for the 31st Annual Father’s Day Car Show. The event was hosted by the Shenango Valley Region of the Antique Automobile Club of America.

Over 400 cars were on display in 27 different classes. Club members said the recent rain hurt the car turnout but not the turnout from the public, thousands of people came to share their love of cars.

“Everyone can relate to a car. You can remember when you were 12 years old and your grandfather put you on his lap and let you steer the car,” said publicity director Fred Ross. “Everybody has some type of memory of a car. You look around and there are a thousand people here and there are a thousand different stories.

Awards were given out for the best cars of the day.
