ELIZABETHTOWN — About 50 pre-1927 vintage cars will be making their way to Cape Fear Vineyard & Winery in Elizabethtown on Tuesday, July 19, as part of a week-long sightseeing venture around eastern North Carolina by the N.C. Horseless Carriage Car Club.

The club is made up of members throughout the southeast, as well as a few scattered members from north of the Mason-Dixon Line.

The group will be spending the week in Mt. Olive and take a number of day trips between 50 and 80 miles away. The 50 cars, along with about 120 people, are expected to arrive in Elizabethtown at about noon on July 19, have lunch at Cape Fear Vineyard & Winery and depart back to Mt. Olive at about 2:30 p.m.

“People are more than welcome to come out and look at the cars while we are at the Winery,” said Trish White, organizer of the trip.

The group of cars — which will be coming out of North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Connecticut — will include a 1910 Stanley Steamer and a 1911 Model T Ford.

Those coming out to see the cars are also invited to take a look around the grounds at Cape Fear Vineyard & Winery.
