2016 Autumn Harvest Collector Car Show
This was the scene on the show field at 10:00 am, the opening time on Saturday September 10th of our annual Autumn Harvest Collector Show at Manchester, Maryland. The sunny and warm day brought out 100 collector vehicles and many spectators.
Many participants arrived before the official show start time; others arrived steadily throughout the morning.
