Deep Run Recreation Center will host “Sunday Afternoon with the Classics” from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. The topic will be the “Day 2” Modified Car. This “back in the day” 1960s trend embraces the philosophy that to improve performance and get the look of the vehicle just right, purchase the perfect car and on “Day 2” – or the second day of ownership – add near-instant modifications and upgrades such as Crager mag wheels, white letter tires, side pipes, a fancy paint job, fender skirts and other aftermarket accessories. Richmond Region AACA will give a presentation with mildly modified, period-correct cars to see up-close. Admission is free.
