As a yearly Father’s Day outing my son and I attended the Sully Historic Site Car Show in what once was the Sully Plantation in Fairfax County, Virginia. This is by far the most prestigious car show in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
Every year cars from around the region, and the nation, converge here to show off the restorations that make these outstanding centerpieces for a hobby that gives pride to their owners. Some cars are sold here, but most gather to win recognition and trophies for the efforts put into them. Our host was Justin Mawdley who steered us to our particular interests. There were food and antique venders, and even a ‘Down Home’ band to provide refreshments and music during our stay.
Automobiles ranged from Ford Model T’s to Muscle Cars, and from Classic collectables to Rolls Royce’s. This is a show to delight auto enthusiasts from all walks of life. The entrance fees were low and the weather was great. There was even a display that most enjoyed showing how a Ford Model T could be put together under eighteen minutes. All this could be found off of Route 28 in Fairfax County just off of Interstate 66. The Sully Historic Site offers many other events year round as well. You can call for information of events at (703)437-1794 or visit their web site at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/sully.
