we've got a demonstration of a 1910 Stanley Steamer.
Also demonstrations of a hundred and hundred and eleven year old electric car.
That evening we have the "big tour de Fairbanks" we call it.
That's when a lot of these antique cars are going to be buzzing around.
Going all the way out to the pipeline viewpoint through Gold Stream Valley, past Pioneer Park and through town."
