Riding the roads in style

A wide variety of vintage, antique and restored autombiles took center stage Saturday during the 6th Annual River Cities Model A's Ford Club auto show.

Cars rolled in throughout the morning to the National Civil War Naval museum at Port Columbus in preparation for judging, which began at noon.

This is the sixth year of the event.

On display, but not being judged, were a dozen Model A Fords, owned by club members, who not only show the cars, but make a point of touring them on a regular basis, said Joe Spooner of Waverly, Alabama, the club's president.

"Our club is one that likes to enjoy and use the cars," said Spooner, owner of a 1930 Model A Ford pickup.

The club's next tour is scheduled for May 31, when they will meet at Port Columbus for a tour to Andersonville.
