Model A’s, Model T’s and their contemporary cars and trucks filled the parking lot at Richardson Ford in Standish July 13 for an antique car show. A joint effort between the Standish Historical Depot and the dealership, about 48 vehicles and their owners came from across Michigan, from as close as Standish to as far as cities like Dearborn. Sloppy Joes were served for lunch, and an ice cream social was held at 2 p.m.
