Fans of classic and antique automobiles will have plenty to “Oooh,” “Ahh,” and talk about when the Memory Lane Car Club brings over 40 of these diverse, classic, beautifully restored and maintained rolling works of art for “show and tell” to the Deltaville Maritime Museum’s Working Waterman’s Weekend (WWW) festivities on Saturday, April 26.
The Saturday events of Working Waterman’s Weekend, April 24-27, at the Maritime Park begin at 8 a.m. with Billz Bistro’s opening for breakfast and coffee. The car show, antique boat show and farmers’ market run from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. and the Pierwalk tours, cruises, and shuttle to the schooner “Virginia” run from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Groovin’ in the Park concert with the “Ray Pittman Project” is from 6-8 p.m.

The organizing group for this year’s car show is the Memory Lane Car Club, based in Kilmarnock. Memory Lane, formed in 2011, is a club with the express purpose of encouraging the owners of antique, classic and even exotic motor vehicles to get together, enjoy operating, working on, exhibiting and, big surprise, actually driving their cars.
“It’s all about enjoyment,” quotes the Memory Lane website. Check it out at http://www.sites.google.com/site/oldcars2012 or call Jack at 804-435-6171.
Spokesman Jack Ashburn said, “We do this for fun and to help organizations like the museum with their fundraising. The museum is there for the community and we want to be there for them, both in their time of need and in the future.”
Deltaville Maritime Museum and Holly Point Nature Park is a non-profit organization at 287 Jackson Creek Road and on Mill Creek. Turn right off Route 33 across from the Shell Station to get there.
