"Heads swivel when an antique car passes," said Elaine Egdorf, chairwoman of the Homewood Heritage Committee. "When dozens of vintage and classic cars pass, mouths drop open in wonder."

Area residents will have an opportunity to experience that wonder Saturday, June 18, when the 15th annual Drivin' the Dixie vintage car tour rolls through Homewood.
