OLCOTT – The 33rd Annual Olcott Beach Car Show attracted 800 classic cars and vehicles that were on display at Krull Park.

The show sometimes draws 1,000 cars. There were some sprinkles on Saturday that may have deterred some of the car owners, but the weather was ideal for one of the biggest car shows in Western New York.

Robert and Kim Regian won Best of Show with a 1959 Chevy Impala.

The show draws a big group on onlookers throughout the day at the park along Lake Ontario.

Some of the enthusiasts relished the chance to get an up-close look at the cars and trucks.

The cars were shined with their hoods up at Krull Park.

A one-wheel motorcycle also joined the car show, and took many trips around the park.
