Cars, cars and more cars at Portsmouth Abbey
PORTSMOUTH — It was a car lover’s dream today at Portsmouth Abbey School.
Hundreds turned out for the 58th annual Newport Motor Car Festival hosted by the Portsmouth Rotary Club. The oldest classic car show on the East Coast is an annual Father’s Day tradition.
Visitors were treated to fine views of Narragansett Bay as they inspected automobiles and motorcycles of all makes and models, some of which dated back more than 100 years.
The Rotary raises about $8,000 to $10,000 annually at the car show for its 25 or so charities in Newport County. The Rotary also awards scholarships of $1,000 each to two Portsmouth High School seniors every year.
