Joe Simeone, background, came from Massachusetts on Saturday morning to check out the cars on display at the 40th annual Founders Day & Classic Car Exhibit on Paris Hill in Paris. This 1934 Packard Super 8 Convertible Sedan was driven to the event by a private collector who came to show off his vintage automobile. In addition to private collectors, businessman Bob Bahre opened his garages to the public to see one of the best car collections in the world. See more photos at sunjournal.com.
