Skip Barber said, Last years event was one of the most democratic shows Ive ever seen. We had Bentleys from the 1930s shoulder to shoulder with Honda Accords, which, by the way, were right next to jacked-up diesel pick-ups, Z28s and Austin-Healeys. Thousands of vehicles... Its wonderful when everyone feels as one, to do what they can for Newtown.
