During today’s open hours, George DeLorean, brother of John DeLorean, stopped in for a tour. This was the first time he had seen the collection and was very impressed! He took time out to take photos with our volunteer staff, including Vern Lancaster. Vern has brought his DeLorean automobile to several of our Thursday Night Cruise Ins.
This weekend we have two shows we are participating in! Our 1935 Lincoln we be on display at the Cincinnati Concours d’Elegance on Sunday, June 9 at Ault Park. Our 1935 Chrysler Airflow will make its way to the Packard Proving Grounds for the Cars are Stars show! If you in either location, be sure to stop by and say hello! We will have flyers on hand about the collection!
Thank you to everyone who came out on Wednesday, December 19th and helped us raise money and food for the Vietnam Veterans Chapter 154 and brought so many toys for the Marines Toys for Tots drive! We had a record number of donations of food and toys! Thank you to the No Name Car Club, Father and Son’s Pizza, and Marco’s Pizza of Chesterfield for all you do to make this event great! A special shout out to First Place Lounge for holding your own toy drive and dropping the toys at the museum. Visitors got to see the new additions right before they are being tucked away for a bit. They also got to see the 1916 Hudson go for a quick spin! Be sure you don’t miss out for next year, bigger and better things are in the works! We start collecting food and toys on Black Friday! Merry Christmas and Happy Motoring New Year to all!
Our 1938 Mercedes-Benz 320 Cabriolet B traveled to the Sunshine State this past week and won Best in Class for Mercedes-Benz (Pre-1947) at the 2018 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance! The show was moved to Saturday once again, due to threatening weather. The sun was out and a nice, cool breeze accompanied to make it a very delightful day! We hope we were able to entice more people to make the trip to Michigan and see all the wonderful cars in our museum and neighboring locations!
