“I’ve had it for nine years,” he said. “I bought it brand new in 2010. It’s an ‘11 but I bought it in ‘10 when this body style just came out. I only have about 8,000 miles on it now.”

 

When it comes to a car this nice, Traficante said he doesn’t like to drive it much.

 

“It kind of sits around in the garage,” he said. “I drive it to shows, and that’s about it. Every once and awhile I’ll take it out for a cruise.”

 

Traficante, who has lived in Martinsburg, WV, for almost a year after moving from New Jersey, said those involved in the local car show scene are a friendly crowd.

 

“I love the area,” he said. “The few shows I’ve been to everybody’s been very outgoing and welcoming. Coming here today, it was a little overwhelming.”

 

Sholl said car shows can be special and nostalgic events.

 

“It’s fun to see how well maintained the cars are and to see it bring back memories for so many people,” he said.
