Reminiscer Dad’s Day Auto Show Replaced By Hometown Auto One

Reminiscers’ Dad’s Day Auto Show

Replaced By Hometown Auto One

Yvonne Dewitt of Hobart helps set up husband Alfred's 1966 Plymouth Sports Satellite this morning at the first annual Father's Day Celebration Car Show & Swap Meet on Route 7 west of Oneonta.  Hometown Auto proprietor Keith Liggett took on the Father's Day tradition after the Reminiscers' Car Club decided to let its annual Neahwa Park show lapse.   The crowd was forming this morning despite threatening weather – in fact, the sun almost broke through the clouds at a couple of points.  First 150 dads to register will receive a free Brooks BBQ lunch.  (Jim Kevlin/allotsego.com)
