A hot day and cool cars greeted visitors at the Wareham Historical Society’s second annual Fourth of July car show on Wednesday.

Held in conjunction with the society’s long-running antiques faire, the events attracted hundreds of people.

Cars were parked at the Tremont Nail Factory District. The historic site, where nails were manufactured starting in the 1800s, is now owned by the town. Proponents hope to revitalize the site into a destination. Plans may include shops, restaurants and event space.

“Today is all about having fun and showing that this property has potential for many more events,” said Selectman Alan Slavin, one of the show’s co-organizers along with Paul Girard.

Last year, the show attracted 120 cars. This year, the number is closer to 80, said Girard. But organizers are hopeful the event, which serves as a fundraiser for the Wareham Historical Society, continues to grow.

“We’ve got a great spot and great cars,” said Girard. “We’ll see everybody next year.”

Car show sponsors include Wareham Ford, Don’s Custom Upholstery, Marc’s Auto Repair and Towing and Advance Auto Parts.
