Join Historic New England’s Phillips House and the North Shore Old Car Club for the Fourteenth Annual Car Meet
on historic Chestnut Street. Members of the North Shore Old Car Club
will display their vintage and antique vehicles; there will be special
tours of the Phillips House and Carriage House, including a close-up
look at the two Pierce-Arrows, Model A Ford, and five carriages on
display. Jazz music will be provided by the Trent Austin Duo. Light
refreshments will be provided as well.
New for 2015 will be a vintage Volkswagen photo booth, sponsored by Creative Salem
and Front Street Coffeehouse. Visitors will be welcome to take some
groovy pictures with a classic car. The Cannoli Cart will also be in
attendance with mini treats for purchase. Proceeds from both of these
additions will support historic preservation.
Returning for a fifth year, RFT Insurance of Lynnfield will be
sponsoring two award categories for the meet. All visitors will be able
to vote for a People’s Choice and there will be a Sponsor’s Choice
Award. The awards ceremony will take place at 2:30 p.m.
The meet takes place on Sunday, August 9 from noon – 3:00 p.m.
Admission is free. The car meet is open to all participants, though
members of the North Shore Old Car Club will receive priority parking
near the Phillips House.
The Phillips House Car Meet is part of Salem Heritage Days, which run August 1-9, 2015.
