18th Annual Autofest Showcases Hundreds Of Classic Automobiles
NEW ULM, MN- Despite the rain this morning, classic cars rolled into the Brown County Fairgrounds for the annual Autofest.
Wheels of all models and colors, packed with history were on display, allowing hundreds of motor enthusiasts to take a peak under the hoods of New Ulm's oldest cars and trucks.
The event serves as a show and not a competition.
Some of the cars are for sale, and there's something for fans of all ages to enjoy.
Showers dampened the turnout for the event, which usually sees 400 to 500 vintage automobiles.
Despite the weather, the hot rod community showed its muscle!
Autofest club president Jessi Havemeier says "New Ulm's a very strong town in its heritage. I think the heritage of the cars even continues with that. People love to bring back the old nostalgia."
Autofest club member Norman Grathwohl says "We just want to thank everybody for coming out. Minus the rain, it turned out to be a good day."
In all, more than 200 classics shined in the spotlight Sunday.
