Allandale Car Show brings classic rides to Kingsport

KINGSPORT — A large number of British cars and a relatively rare example of the American automobile — a 1928 REO Coupe — are expected to be among highlights of the 35th annual Allandale Car Show on Sunday.

Dan’l Boone Region Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA) is the sponsoring organization for the Allandale Car Show, which typically attracts hundreds of entrants and always draws crowds of participants and onlookers, rain or shine.

Organizers say a likely standout at this year’s show could be the 1928 REO, which was stored in a garage near Nicklesville, Va., for 50 years or so.

REO stands for Ransom Eli Olds, who in 1904 started the company, his second such venture after first founding what eventually became Oldsmobile.

The Allandale Car Show is open to all vehicles for a $12 advance registration fee, which increases to $15 the day of show. The fee includes two adult admissions.

Registration begins at 9 a.m. Sunday and continues until 1 p.m., with an awards presentation at 4 p.m.

Inside the mansion, there will be a display of local-interest photos related to automobiles and a collection of kiddie cars.
