WAVERLY, N.Y. – In downtown Waverly, N.Y., on Sunday, Binghamton, N.Y., resident Ed Hunt stood next to his Cutlass Oldsmobile, a car he had bought new 33 years ago for $9,000.
Down the street, 46-year-old Kurt Knapp of Waverly stood next to a tow truck that he is restoring, which had been built 15 years before he was born.
At the same time, many people were looking at a 1956 General Motors Century sedan, which had a signs on its side indicating that it was a sheriff’s patrol car from Cochise County, which is located in Arizona on the Mexican border.
These three vehicles were among the 171 cars, trucks and motorcycles that were part of the "Last Chance" Classic & Antique Auto, Truck and Bike Show, which was held Sunday in Waverly.
The day-long event, sponsored by the Waverly Business Association, also featured a disc jockey, food vendors, door prizes, and a 50-50 raffle. A food collection drive was also underway at the car show for a local food bank.
