Fifty-five carefully selected cars from throughout the world are included in this unique non-competitive, non-commercial display. A special exhibit of vehicles from 1927-1931 will recognize the 85thAnniversary of Merchants Square, while a second will illustrate the dramatic changes in high-end transportation from the 18th to the 21st Century. This exhibit will feature a circa 1775 replica landau from the Colonial Williamsburg collection of carriages, a 1937 Rolls-Royce and a 2013 Tesla.
This show is open to the public at no charge. All who attend are encouraged to make a cash donation in support of the wonderful service provided by the Williamsburg area Meals-on-Wheels, who will have a special display at the center of the car show.
