SALINE COUNTY -- Hundreds of old car fans and owners filled the Saline County Fairgrounds Monday for the Memory Lane AutoFest.

Cars and trucks of all years, makes and models were on display while showgoers braved the heat to show their appreciation for the antique vehicles.

"Repeat Offender" and DJ "Big Elvis" performed for the crowd, and numerous vendors were on display.

The eighth annual car show also had inflatables provided by Southern Illinois Inflatables. Canned goods were also accepted for donation to local food pantries.
