FLINT, Mich. (WLNS) – Are you itching to see some awesome vintage American cars?

Downtown Flint is being taken over Aug. 15-20 by thousands of old school muscle cars, hot rods, and other vintage beauties for the annual Back to the Bricks car show and cruise.

Returning for its 18th year, Back to the Bricks is a celebration of Flint’s historic role in the automotive industry.

The multi-day event features several parades through downtown Flint’s red brick stretch on Saginaw Street. Thousands line up to check out classic cars and vehicles of every description imaginable as they roll down the street.
