The light rain Sunday couldn't keep auto enthusiasts away from the dozens of classic and antique cars parked in downtown Geneva for the 13th annual Concours d'Elegance Car Show.

Autos of all styles from every era were on display, some well over 100 years old. Besides showing off the cars for spectators, owners were competing for awards in a variety of categories.

The judges were not all adults. Sarah Nolan, 11, of South Elgin, was among about a dozens kids to make up the Youth Judging team.

"I like judging cars because it is fun to see the cool features you don't normally see everyday," she said.
