Saturday November 7th may have been a rainy day but it didn’t hamper the crowd that attended the 2015 10th Annual Classic Car Show on Celebration Plaza in Sulphur Springs. The number of cars entered this year was less than previous years. However, those attending enjoyed the beauty of the classic models and, for many, remembered either driving or wishing they could have driven one of the classics.
