This will be our largest car show yet! Cars entered by Colony Auto Enthusiasts members provides the basis for this unique, comfortable, non-competitive, non-commercial event that presents a broad array of cars at their best and benefits the programs of the Williamsburg Area Meals-on-Wheels. This year Jaguar, the Featured Marque, will be represented by an impressive collection of more than a dozen cars providing a history lesson about this wonderful British company. In addition, a group of more than 15 Invited Guest cars including an all-original 1933 Buick, a 1958 BMW Isetta, a 1961 Cadillac, and a 1949 Lincoln Cosmopolitan convertible should provide a great show for any visitor to Merchants Square.
And finally, a very special display will include fire engines of years past while another will recognize the 101st year of Chevrolet.
Who Are the Colony Auto Enthusiasts?
We are an authorized Club within Ford’s Colony, a community just outside the City of Williamsburg, VA. Ours is a group of more than 60 residents whose common interest is cars! From pre-war classics and old British, German and Italian cars, we are interested in old cars, new cars, sports cars, race cars, exotics, domestic and foreign cars. Some members own them; others just admire and enjoy them.
What do the Enthusiasts do?
We meet monthly for discussion, to hear speakers, see audio-video presentations, and learn more about what is going on in the automotive world that can impact each of us and our cars – today and tomorrow.
We sponsor The Annual Williamsburg Invitational Car Show in Merchants Square, a picturesque setting of shops and restaurants in Colonial Williamsburg, we conduct unique automotive events and services for the residents of Ford’s Colony, participate in driving events, car shows, rallies, parades, visits to shops and museums and have parties . . . all related to our interest in cars.
How can I become a member and why would I want to?
