SHELTON, Conn. – Car lovers of all ages flocked to Shelton on Sunday to check out the Ross Jenacardo seventh annual Antique and Classic Car Show and to help out a good cause.

The show benefits the Arthur C. Luf Children’s Burn Camp while honoring its founder, Ross Jenacaro, who died in 2014.

The show featured cars from the early 1900s up until the 1970s, with even a few current cars on display.

Shelton Mayor Mark Lauretti took in the car show, going around the lot and choosing one car as his favorite.

“Let me thank you to everyone for showing up today. You’re making a difference in someone’s life,” Lauretti said as he announced Bob Sabre and his 1958 Chevy Impala as the lucky recipient of the Mayor’s Trophy.

Winners in other categories included Gene Merli with a 1932 Ford, Joe Sandella with a 1965 Ford Mustang, Nick Tiberio with a 1962 Plymouth Fury and Butch Forte with a 1957 Ford Fairlane 500.

“I thank everyone for coming out and making a difference,” Lauretti said.

Born and raised in Bridgeport, Jenacardo had a passion for helping those in need and became dedicated to helping the camp after visiting with his late friend, Frank Gaudiano.

The show is held at 4 Corporate Park, home of Aristocrat Limousine, which Jenacardo owned and operated.

The host of this year's event was Round Town Cruisers, led by Joe Perna and Mike Bordonaro.

Frank Szivos, executive director of the Connecticut Burns Care Foundation, played a big role in setting up the day's event. The foundation's camp is specially designed for children ages 8 to 18 who have suffered burns. The camp runs for a week in July.
