Valley car enthusiasts can go back in time when the city of Phoenix’s Heritage & Science Park hosts the “Motoring Thru Time – Where the transportation past meets the future!” classic vehicle exhibit on Saturday, Feb. 7 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

More than 100 classic and antique cars, trucks, travel trailers, motorcycles and bicycles from the early 1900s to the mid-1980s will be displayed. The free exhibit is a signature event of the statewide Arizona SciTech Festival. This year’s event will feature an 1898 Jeanperrin Vis-a-Vis Voiturette and 1907 Stevens-Duryea (Little Six Touring) automobile as well as live music to celebrate Heritage Square’s 35th anniversary. View a list of vehicles scheduled to be on display.

Event goers are invited to participate in a unique People’s Choice Award canned food drive to benefit St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance. Those in attendance can vote for their favorite vehicle with a can of food, with one can equaling one vote. Attendees may vote as many times as they wish.

The day also will serve as grand opening of “Phoenix RE:Imagined” in the park’s historic Stevens House. The new exhibit about the city’s urban renewal and restoration efforts in the 1970s is free.

Heritage & Science Park, a Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department facility, is located at 6th St. and Monroe in downtown Phoenix. The park is within walking distance of light rail stations at 3rd St. and Washington/Jefferson, and Central/1st Ave. and Van Buren.
