The 68th Revival AAA Glidden Tour will be held for the first time in the Chattanooga area Sept. 8 through 13, with more than 225 antique cars from around the country taking part. And they will be in Cleveland on Sept. 13, for a car show at Westwood Baptist Church. The Glidden Tour is the largest premier antique automobile touring event in the world, and each year a different location is chosen as host. It was held in Texas last year and will be in Ohio in 2014. On the afternoon of Friday, Sept. 13, a show is planned from noon to 3 p.m., in the parking lot of Westwood Baptist. Residents are encouraged to come out to see the cars, and it is free to the public. A displayed automobile must have been built prior to World War II, and must be original to participate. Marques which have faded from history like Packard, Hudson, Auburn and Marmon will be driving the streets of this area for a week. The oldest vehicle registered is a 1909 Pierce-Arrow 48. The following Saturday, the Southern Fall Meet of the Antique Automobile Club of America will also have its event at Westwood Baptist. The AACA Fall Meet will have cars 1988 and older being judged for awards while every car in the Glidden Tour will be 1942 models and earlier.
