ALBION – Fifty classic cars and trucks are lined up on East State Street today and at the Merrill-Grinnell Funeral Home parking lot, and the classic car show still had an hour to go before it started.

The funeral home is hosting its first-ever classic car show today from 1 to 5 p.m. Proceeds from the event, including a 50/50 raffle and entry fees for the cars, will go to Hospice of Orleans.

Scott Schimdt, owner of 2004 Viper SRT-10, gives the car a shine before today’s car show. Schimdt was parked next to his father Bruce, who brought along a 1973 Triumph TR6.
