Rolling wonder: Elks showcase some sweet rides (slideshow)

On Saturday, April 9, sixty classic cars were on display at the second annual Charlottesville Elks Club Car Show on Stony Point Road, including a beauty owned by Bob Archer of Bob's Wheel Alignment: a 1935 Buick that won top honors at the National Car Show last year and was recently appraised at more than $180,000.

Proceeds from the event will help send local children to summer camp. Va-roooom!
