(Rain date October 10)

We will hold our 35th annual classical car show at Palmer Field, Route 66, Washington Street in Middletown, CT.

In addition to the ever popular classic cars on display, the show will feature an expanded Harvest Market. Opportunities are available for vendors such as antique dealers, vintage purveyors, crafts people, folks downsizing, and food trucks.

The Market will be from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. with set up beginning at 7:30 a.m.

The Fall Harvest Market is being held at a prime location with thousands of cars passing by each day. The classic car show, a perennially popular event, draws a large crowd and vendors are sure to do a brisk business.

2021 Classic Car Show's Featured Car 1966 Chevrolet Impala SuperSport

All eyes at the Middlesex County Historical Society’s 35th Annual Antique Car Show and Fall Harvest Market will gravitate to this year’s featured car, a 1966 Chevrolet Impala SuperSport. It has Strato bucket seats and power steering and has won over 30 trophies at various shows throughout the years.

It will motor to the show located at Palmer Field adjacent to Washington Street, Route 66 in Middletown on Sunday, October 3. Car registration begins at 9:30 am and judging starts at 11:30 am with trophies awarded to the top vehicles at 2:00 pm. General admission is $3.00 and children 12 and under are free. Car registration is $10.00. Although cars registered for judging must be dated 1996 or older, there is no cut-off date for cars being placed in the car corral. In case of rain, the show will be held Sunday, October 10.

This Impala sports its original 327/275 horsepower engine, its Chateau Slate color and rare factory built air conditioning, and has only 56,000 miles on the odometer. It was restored over a period of four years by its second owner in West Chester, PA. The third and current owner, Jim Caruso, says “Of all the classic cars that I have owned, this one is by far my daughter’s favorite, therefore it is not for sale!”
