Albany- The cars in the parking lot of the Albany Mall looked as if they had traveled back in time. More than 125 cars were on display for the 32nd annual Artesian City Car Show. Hundreds wandered the area around the fountain peering into the engines. For some, it's a dream come true.

"Ever since I was little watching the Dukes of Hazzard, I always wanted a '69 Charger, so that's what I wound up getting when I graduated college," said Hal Jackson of Thomasville.

Cars were judged in 40 different classes. The judges gave marks for good body condition, paint, interior, engine, originality and uniqueness.
