CHEVY 210 Hardtop is one of the vintage “fintastic” cars to be displayed at the Auto Show.

Get your motors running. The free Gilmore Heritage Auto Show, “Fintastic: A Tribute to American Cars of 1957,” will take place Sat., June 3 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at The Original Farmers Market at Third St. and Fairfax Ave.

In 1957, automobile design expressed the country’s unbridled optimism. Chrysler’s forward-looking tailfin design set the standard, with GM, Ford and others close behind.

More than 100 classic and vintage cars, including a De Soto Adventurer 2 Door Hardtop, a Ford Thunderbird and a Chevy 210 Hardtop, will be parked on site.

Visitors can rub shoulders with car fanatics as they view vehicles on display up-close and personal before they roll off in a grand finale at 5 p.m.

“1957 was a peak year for Baby Boomers: the year the hula hoop was invented, Sputnik was launched and Elvis purchased his Graceland mansion. It was also a very special year for the automobile – tailfins aplenty – and we can’t wait to celebrate that history with our fans at the Market!”  said Ilysha Buss, Farmers Market marketing director.

Since its founding in 1995, the annual Auto Show has been nurtured by the memory of The Gilmore Oil Company. Oil was discovered on the property circa 1900.
