If nothing gets your motor running like the roar of a classic car's engine, then you will want to clear your schedule for this Saturday and make your way to Osceola Park, at 50 Osceola Street in Pittsfield, for what is sure to be one heck of a car show!

The Osceola Park Car Show and Picnic, running from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM, will feature a wide variety of vintage cars and trucks, according to its organizers. The show, sure to excite you with all the sites and sounds of some very cool vehicles, is free and open to everyone. Trophies will be given to the "Best of Show" vehicle, and for the "Attendees Pick" vehicle.

The car show is actually only part of what is happening at the park on Saturday. Organizers say that attendees are also encouraged to attend the picnic in which you can bring your own food, drink, and chairs and enjoy the camaraderie of what will be a family-friendly event. There will be some canopy tents and tables set up. Please note however that alcohol is not permitted in the park so, you will want to refrain from bringing any along.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
