YARDLEY BOROUGH >> Morning raindrops gave way to brightening skies on May 4 just in time for a spring auto show organized by the Morrisville-Yardley Area Rotary Club.

From the late morning to early afternoon, FitzGerald Field bustled with people who came out to see a cross section of automotive history, from a 1923 Ford Street Rod T-Bucket to a 1955 Jaguar and a 1972 Volkswagen Beetle.

Yardley Borough Council President Bryon Marshall was there with his newly acquired 1945 military Jeep. So was Yardley Borough resident Brad Varney who was showing off his red, white and blue 1937 Dodge truck.

Also rolling onto the show grounds were Dean Dickson, with his 1972 yellow Volkswagen Beetle, and retired Morrisville Borough Manager George Mount, with his 1929 Ford Phantom.

The event offered the public an opportunity to see and talk with car clubs and new car dealers, to learn about businesses that offer car-related products and services and to talk with private vintage car owners.

Festival proceeds will benefit the Rotary Club’s literacy and education projects that benefit local children.

The Morrisville-Yardley Area Rotary Club meets the second and fourth Thursdays at the Yardley Country Club, 1010 Reading Avenue, Yardley 19067. A gathering time begins at 5:30 p.m. with the meeting starting at 6 p.m.
