SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) – South Portland Police say a Circle K clerk thwarted an attempted robbery by getting the would be thief in a choke hold on the store's floor.

Antique cars line up at Bug Light


SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Looking at the old Model T's and Corvair's along the waterfront may have felt like a blast from the past -- but the Bug Light Classic Car Show is right in line with city officials' vision for the park's future.

The South Portland Parks and Rec. Department has been trying to bring more community events to the lighthouse, and the car show is one of the fastest growing events.

In three years, the number of antique cars has grown from 50 to 220.

"There's something going on here all the time now," said car show organizer Linky Erskine. "People love it down here, and we're really trying to use the park as much as we can."

Admission was free, and hundreds of people attended this year's show on Wednesday night.
