Antique and classic cars featured in downtown Johnson City event

Decade’s worth of antique and classic cars could be seen today lining Main Street in downtown Johnson City.

The City of Johnson City celebrated Homecoming – Remember When, by inviting the public to see a showcase of automobile history.

Owners lined their cars according to the decade they belonged to, ranging from the 1920s to the 60s.

“One of the things that we’re doing is trying to capture some of the stories that people have of downtown,” said Jenny Brock, a city commissioner.

“We’ve got a booth set up where they can tell their stories. And also if they have pictures in their own personal archives that they can bring down so we can scan them and at least have a digital version of that picture.”

The city dedicated bricks and plaques purchased by supporters of the area’s downtown revitalization during the event at the Lady of the Fountain plaza.
