Antique Car Rally Comes Through Bedford

Bedford, VA - One parking lot in Bedford hosted an impromptu car show Thursday, as the Tour Americal road rally passed through town.

Parking spaces outside Liberty Station restaurant were filled with classic Jaguars, a Porsche, and an Alfa Romeo. Drivers and passengers stopped for lunch. They're visiting from Belgium. The rally started in New York City.

"Mostly in New York spectators were watching us," said Koan Helsean, a rally participant. "We made the tour around New York. It was very nice. 5th Avenue, 6th Avenue, 7th Avenue. We drove through it all."

The cars pulled out of Bedford on their way to the next stop, Winston-Salem. The tour ends in Miami next Friday.
