Prize car on display at weekend show

A prize piece of a Cos Cob resident’s collection will be on display this weekend at the Alden Sherman Classic Benefit Car Show.

Cos Cob’s Michael FitzSimons will stand proudly alongside his 1948 Lincoln Continental at the show this Sunday, Sept. 23, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at Weston High School on School Road in Weston.

The 1948 Lincolns are part of the first generation of Lincoln Continentals produced under Edsel Ford, son of Henry Ford and president of the Ford Motor Company from 1919-1943. The 1948 model is recognized as a “full classic” by the Classic Car Club of America and is one of the last-built cars to be so designated. It is also the last V-12 engine car produced and sold by a major U.S. automaker.

Mr. FitzSimons will be joined by at least 100 other car and motorcycle enthusiasts from all over Fairfield County and beyond at The Alden Sherman Classic to show their collectible cars, race cars and motorcycles and answer questions about their vehicles.

Anyone attending the show will have an opportunity to vote for his or her favorite cars and motorcycles. Based on these votes, “people’s choice” awards will recognize cars in the different decades represented at the show, from pre-war to present day, as well as motorcycles, race cars, Best in Show and more.

“Nearly everyone has a car they feel passionate about, whether it’s a 1965 Mustang they always wanted to own or the first car they ever bought,” said Mr. FitzSimons, who is a member of the car show’s organizing committee. “This show is about America’s longstanding love affair with the automobile, and it’s for a good cause, too.”

The Alden Sherman Classic is free and open to the public, with a suggested tax-deductible donation at the gate. Proceeds will support the Weston Senior Activities Center, which serves the active senior community in Weston and surrounding towns.
