Cars that will be on display include a 1929 Model A Ford Special Coupe, 1953 Jaguar XK-120 Fixed-Head Coupe, 1954 Victress S1-A, 1955 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith Touring Saloon, 1957 Ford Thunderbird, 1969 Camaro Super Sport Convertible, 1970 Chevrolet Impala Convertible, 1987 Corvette Convertible, 1997 Porsche 911 and several others.
As a special feature of the show, the Deerfield-Bannockburn Fire Protection District will present FDNY Rescue 4, a fire truck that served at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. The truck, now fully operational and touring the country, is an important piece of American history and a memorial to all fire, police, medical, and other first responders.
