The Antique Automobile Club of America, the world’s largest organization of its kind, held its annual Grand Nationals in Gettysburg in August. The event included AACA’s annual Zenith Award competition and its Grand Nationals car show.

This year’s show was a little different because of the coronavirus pandemic. The Wyndham Gettysburg property allowed 484 cars to be spread out over eight different outdoor show fields, permitting plenty of space for social distancing.

This year’s winner was chosen from the more than 2,800 cars, trucks, and motorcycles shown across the U.S. during 2019.

Judges crowned the 1958 Buick Century Caballero, owned by Joe and Julie Tonietto of Michigan, as the 2020 Zenith Award winner.

The Toniettos’ restoration took 4 ½ years to complete and was performed by a mix of professionals, the owners, and a few trusted friends.
