Motors revving, hundreds of classic cars from around the nation toured eastern Idaho for the first time, ever, this week.

This week marks the 75-year anniversary of the Veteran Motor Car Club of America and the 50-year anniversary of the eastern Idaho chapter, who is hosting the national club this year.

"We have at least 19 different states represented here," Idaho Falls VMCCA member Mark Schwartzenberger said. "We just wanted to give them a good side of all of the different things eastern Idaho has to offer."

Today the national tour started in Aberdeen before making its way down to the Museum of Clean in Pocatello. Next, drivers made their way to Fort Hall and then to Blackfoot.

Schwartzenberger said all of the cars are at least 20 years old, with some dating back almost a century.
