Harlem, NEW YORK—Checked out the Upper Manhattan Autoshow today—an annual showcase of vintage cars where classic American design was on display.
Marking its 22nd year, the Harlem Week event began with a procession through the neighborhood, starting at Duke Ellington Plaza at 110th Street and Fifth Avenue.
The owners were on hand to share the history and design details of their prized vehicles, including a Lincoln with suicide doors, convertible Jaguars and Cadillacs, Buicks and Fords.
