Despite drizzling rain and gray skies, the third annual Cars in the Park auto show, presented by the Kiawah Island Community Association, was a smashing success! Over 300 automobile lovers of all ages enjoyed leisurely strolls through rows of classic and exotic treasures displayed throughout Kiawah’s Night Heron Park soccer field. From a 1931 Ford Model A to a 2009 Lotus Exige 260, a rare 1949 MG TXECU to a 2003 Ferrari 360 Modena, this event included over 70 beauties from all eras of motor vehicle history. Following the show, registered vehicles made their way down Governor’s Drive to the Ocean Course and back in a 16-mile parade of cars. Both participants and spectators left the event with an appreciation of the craftsmanship and history of these unique vehicles.
