A local show celebrating classic cars is making a comeback in Alexandria next month.

The Classic Car Show is back on Saturday, Sept. 16, from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. at The Lyceum (201 S. Washington Street) in Old Town. The focus of the show is cars that are no longer manufactured.

“Join us in the parking lot of the Alexandria History Museum at The Lyceum for a classic car show featuring a variety of ‘orphan’ vehicles,” a release from the Office of Historic Alexandria said. “This show will bring together cars that are no longer manufactured – hence the term ‘orphans’ – and is scheduled to include cars made by Packard, Hudson, MG, Nash, Pontiac, and more.”

Note: this is different than the Old Town Festival of Speed & Style, another classic car festival in Old Town held in summer. That one comes back May 19.

The Classic Car Show is free and sponsored by Packards Virginia and the Alexandria History Museum.
