If you are a car lover and thought the recent St. Clair car show was a washout (literally -- it poured buckets almost the entire night) there are plenty of other chances to enjoy vintage cars in the county. So take in a local car show and dream about your "if I won the lottery and could spend my days fixing up a classic car" choice.
