More than 100 cars — including those of state Sen. Joe Addabbo Jr. and Assemblymember Phil Goldfeder — got a scrub at this year’s “Wash for Autism” Sunday and nearly 30 classics and hot rods were on display at the annual car show — both of which raised more than $10,000 to benefit the New York Families for Autistic Children Foundation.

NYFAC staff and board members of the Howard Beach-based organization and its foundation joined volunteers in the parking lot of the Queens County Savings Bank in Lindenwood.

Volunteers from all over, including Girl Scout Troop #4993, and more than 40 members of Disturbin Tha Ntelyfe, gave of their time. The group also donated juice boxes.

In addition to the car wash and car show, there was also a DJ, entertainment – and prizes.

Trophies went to the top three cars in the classic division, luxury division and sports division.
