KANDIYOHI COUNTY — The rumble of cool, antique cars was heard along country roadways in eastern Kandiyohi County bright and early Saturday morning, as dozens of extremely old cars cruised in the 37th annual New London to New Brighton Antique Car Run.

Rural residents along the route in the county sat at the ends of their driveways in sometimes large groups to wave and cheer on the vehicles as they buzzed their antique horns and kept putting along.

The event is open to all vehicles up through 1908 and any 1- or 2-cylinder vehicles up through 1915 are eligible to participate.

While en route to the final destination in New Brighton later in the day, the cars made pit stops Saturday in Grove City, Litchfield, Kingston, Buffalo and Crystal.

Earlier in the week, cars took part in smaller cruises around the region and held a parade in downtown New London on Friday afternoon.
