Remnants of Tropical Storm Ernesto last Sunday could not keep enthusiastic antique car aficionados from visiting the 18th Annual Out of the Past Revue in McLean.

Visitors viewing the more than 100 antique cars on display were amazed at the four V-16 Cadillacs on display, three from the 1930s and one new one, the Cadillac Sixteen concept car provided by General Motors. The incredible concept car was sheltered beneath a tent, compliments of Brooke Rentals , as was the People’s Choice selection from last year, a 1933 Datsun fire truck owned by Dan Banks of Ellicott City.

After a day of voting by spectators at the show, the People’s Choice award went to a maroon 1936 Cadillac V-12 convertible sedan with a Fleetwood body owned by Byron Alsop of Oak Hill, Va.

It is fresh from a restoration completed two weeks ago.

The First Runner-up trophy was awarded to Fairfax residents Thomas and Claire Brooks and their three-tone blue 1955 Packard Caribbean convertible. Howard Byron, of Chevy Chase, and his blue 1957 Porsche were Second Runner-up winners.

The discerning antique car owners, voting among themselves, selected Jim George, of Haymarket. as the recipient of the Owner’s Choice award for his black 1931 Cadillac V-16 rumble seat roadster.

With the exception of the 1990s, every decade in the 20th century was represented from a 1909 Buick on up through the century to a 1981 Imperial.
