Field of Wheels

A car isn't just a mode of transport. Automobiles can be a rite of passage, a means of freedom and a vehicle of exploration. Some of those treasures -- and their doting owners -- were gathered May 14, 2011, at Field of Wheels, a classic and custom auto show hosted at Newsday headquarters in Melville.
