Drivers revved their 20th century engines and commenced the first day of the pre-tours for the 33rd annual New London to New Brighton Antique Car Run Wednesday at Peace Lutheran Church in New London.

The pre-tours are held for the rest of the week and allow the drivers to test their antique cars before their 120-mile ride from New London to New Brighton on Saturday.

For a full preview of the festivities surrounding the Antique Car Run, see Page C1 in the Showcase section of today's paper.
