Food Lion AutoFair kicks off April 19th | Community Spirit
CONCORD, NC (WBTV) - The world's largest automotive extravaganza returns to Charlotte Motor Speedway, promising something for everyone!
Anyone with an interest in automotive history won’t want to miss the display honoring the oldest American car manufacturer, Buick, which will include a 1905 Model C that is believed to be one of the oldest Buicks still in existence today. In conjunction with the display, NASCAR great Bobby Allison, who twice drove a Buick to victory in the Daytona 500, will be on hand for an autograph session from 2 to 3pm on Saturday, April 21st.
Those with an interest in rare cars should be sure to check out Tom Cotter’s 1952 Cunningham C-3 that will take center stage in the Barn Finds display. The Cunningham, one of only 25 such cars made by Le Mans legend Briggs Cunningham, was discovered in a South Carolina basement, where it had been stored for nearly 50 years.
The AutoFair also promises plenty of family fun, with a wide assortment of activities in the expanded Powerade Play Zone, an array of fair food and so much more.
The annual four-day show attracts thousands of automobiles and features collector car auctions, a flea market with more than 10,000 vendor spaces, a massive manufacturer midway, a car corral with more than 1,500 cars for sale, special exhibits, a kids' zone, crazy fair foods and much more!
