ELVIS SIGHTINGS in Glen Burnie, a '57 Chevy or two, the sounds of doo-wop in the air it's time for the 6th Annual Car Show and Model Car Contest, noon to 4 p.m. Sunday on the Glen Burnie Improvement Association carnival grounds.

More than 150 antique cars, street rods and custom cars are expected to participate, said Bob Eveson, the event co-chairman.

"The street rods and the custom autos seem to be the main attraction," said Eveson.

In addition to full-size automobiles, dozens of model cars will be on display.

Scheduled activities include a live "Elvis" concert, raffles, auctions and a swap meet. Refreshments will be sold throughout the day.

The show is sponsored by the Lost In The '50s Custom Car Club of Maryland and the Maryland Automotive Modelers Association. Proceeds will benefit Special Boy Scout Troop 216 for physically and mentally challenged youths.

Admission is free for spectators.

Registration for participating autos is $8 in advance and $10 from 9 a.m. to noon on show day. The fee for each model registration is $3. The first 200 cars registered receive dash plaques.
