Albany- They may be classic cars but many of them looked better than new. There were over 70 cars from the 50's, 60's, and 70's and some newer models at Confetti's car show at Wallace Chevrolet. Many people browsed and reminisced about the cars.

Robert Guinn's 57 Chevrolet 4 four door BelAire still has all of the original parts. It was once owned by his grandfather and has been passed through the generations.

"Cars come and go, you buy them and you get rid of them and everything. It's just harder to keep something in the family. You know this is definitely a family heirloom right there," said Guinn of Leesburg.

The car is now owned by his two and a half month old grandson, Darrel. His grandfather is keeping it until he's old enough to drive. Prizes were handed out in various categories.
