Conklin, NY (WBNG Binghamton) More than 200 cars lined up in Conklin Sports Park for the 48th Annual Cruise, Auto Show and Flea Market.

Nearly 1,000 people strolled up and down the rows checking out cars dating from the early 1900's to today.

"Everyone is having a good time looking around, reminiscing and seeing what they like," said George Simon, president of Iroquois Region, one of the show's sponsors. "Most importantly, seeing and talking with some of their old friends."

Proceeds from the show are given to local non-profits.

"We feel it's only right that we donate back to the community that's been good to us," said Simon. "So over the past 10 or so years, we've given over $17,000 back to the community."

Some of the organizations that have benefited from the show in the past are the Boys and Girls Club, the Danielle House, and S.P.E.A.K.

Music was provided by Rich Wilson throughout the afternoon.
