Each Memorial Day weekend, a parking lot on the Route 102 strip in Londonderry glimmers in the sunlight. Antique cars and trucks of foreign and domestic makes, each sporting a unique paint job and interior, line the parking lot, vying for titles like “Best Engine” and “People’s Choice”. Car lovers and enthusiasts unite, dragging their spouses, children and grandchildren to this once-a-year event.
