100 years old, and still running

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  A group of antique car lovers is spending some of their spring in South Georgia, and they brought some true antiques with them. 

A car club that boasts members from many Northern states is keeping the past alive with cars a century old, and beyond. All the cars in their group are 1914 and earlier, and they all run under their own power.

The group trailered 23 cars to Moultrie, and they're driving about 100 miles a day, exploring area cities. Tuesday, they came to the Welcome Center in Albany, and watched a movie at the RiverQuarium.

"That's the nice thing about the old cars, you're driving down the road, people wave to you. You pull in to a little town and they'll come out and talk. You just see a lot of things in the country side that you don't see running down I-75 at 70 miles an hour," said club member Duane Miller.

The group was in Quitman yesterday and plan to make stops in Thomasville and Cairo by Friday.
