If the cars on the Chattanooga streets you travel in the next week cause you to believe you've gone back in time, you're not crazy. The 68th Revival AAA Glidden Tour is in town.

The tour, first held in 2004, involves nearly a week of activities for more than 400 participants in nearly 225 antique cars from Sunday, Sept. 8, through Friday, Sept. 13.

The public will be able to see the cars in and around the Chattanooga Choo Choo and The Chattanoogan hotel event headquarters, as well as on the road as drivers visit sites around the region.

All the cars involved in the tour were built before 1943.
