Outstanding weather rewarded antique car owners as well as spectators Sunday at the 16th annual Out of the Past Revue.

Every one of the 130 antique cars that were on display at the Spring Hill Recreation Center in McLean has been featured in the AutoWeekend section of The Washington Times.

Thousands of spectators viewed the selection of spectacular automobiles while listening to music provided by a crew from radio station Smooth Jazz 105.9 FM.

Following tradition, the crowd favorite from the previous year, a 1930 V-16 Cadillac owned by Pete Sanders of McLean, was exhibited in the center of the field beneath a show tent provided by Brooke Rentals.

A gleaming black 1963 Jaguar XK-E roadster owned by Bill Kellenberger of Manassas won the People’s Choice award as the crowd’s favorite automobile this year. The story about the car appeared on Aug. 2, 2002.

A green 1951 Crosley owned by John Van Sickle of Manassas took the first runner-up award. The story about his diminutive car appeared in last Friday’s AutoWeekend.

Brendan O’Leary drove his red 1966 Amphicar (presumably on the street, not the river) from Alexandria to be selected as second runner-up. The story about the unusual Amphicar appeared on Feb. 27.

Owners of the antique automobiles on the field, voting among themselves, selected a three-tone Packard Caribbean owned by Thomas Brooks of Fairfax Station to be the recipient of the Owner’s Choice award. The story about his car appeared March 19.

Pictures of the event appear on Page G9.
