Classic cars come to South Georgia this week

Classic cars from as far as Canada are coming to Albany for a week long event.

They will be headquartered here for the 20th Annual Social Security Run, but will be driven all over the region.

To be an official entrant, your car has to be at least 65 years old. Like the 1930 Ford Model A that Jerry and Marcia McGill brought from Nebraska.

They own more than 15 classic cars and drive more than 2000 miles a year for events like this.

 It's the people and the old cars", said Marcia. "They are a challenge.  And you get to see some of the places in the country that you wouldn't normally stop at."

 This is a 1914 Dodge that will drive across South Georgia each day this week for various events visiting towns from Andersonville to Cairo. 

 Saturday, organizers expect more than 70 classic cars to take part in the final run.
