The Audi R8, a new, exotic mid-engine car, will be on display Sunday at the 19th annual Out of the Past Revue — along with scores of authentic antique cars, whose beauty will take your breath away.

The annual gathering, which features some of the most spectacular and unusual antique vehicles in the D.C. area, is free and open to the public. Any of the more than 1,000 antique vehicles that have been featured in Vern Parker’s Out of the Past column since 1988 will be eligible to be on display at the invitational event.

The crowd favorite from last year, a 1936 Cadillac, will be displayed under a tent provided by Brooke Rental Center.

The antique car show is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Spring Hill Recreation Center in McLean, rain or shine. Refreshments will be available on the grounds, or spectators can pack a picnic lunch to enjoy while viewing the antique vehicles.

To get to the Spring Hill Recreation Center, take the Capital Beltway exit onto Leesburg Pike (Tysons Corner). Exit Route 7 by turning right onto International Drive and pass in front of Tysons II shopping mall. After a few blocks, International Drive becomes Spring Hill Road. Continue under the Dulles Access Road. Spring Hill Recreation Center is straight ahead at the intersection with Lewinsville Road.

Spectators are encouraged to cast ballots for their favorite car for the “People’s Choice” award. Trophies will be presented at the conclusion of the show.

A complete list of vehicles that have appeared in the Out of the Past column and therefore are eligible to be on the field Sunday begins on page G6.
