Concours d’Elegance of America 2018

We participated in the Concours d’Elegance of America this past weekend at The Inn at St. John’s in Plymouth, Michigan.  Our 1940 Packard Darrin was on display in the Founding Fathers circle.  It was previously owned by Dave Holls, GM exec and founder of the Meadowbrook Concours.  We also displayed our 1938 Mercedes Benz 320 and our 1934 Hupmobile T427, both taking home Best in Class awards.  All in all, it was a great show and we look forward to next year.  Check out more photos from the show on our Facebook by clicking here.

Amelia Island 2018: Best In Class with 1938 Mercedes-Benz

   

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!

See our 1911 Olds Autocrat at Autorama!

If you are heading down to Cobo for the Autorama this weekend, be sure to stop by booth 624 and see our 1911 Oldsmobile Autocrat!  The Yellow Peril sits on 38″ tires and is powered by a massive T-head 4-cylinder engine capable of displacing 500 cubic inches!  The vehicle has a custom boat-tail body built by the original owner, John Henry Greenway Albert.  Yellow Peril has competed in many races in its lifetime including the Great American Race from 1984-1986 and even traveled 3,000 miles through the Canadian Rockies!  It retains the original engine, drive train, and bodywork.  Come by and say hi to Yellow Peril this weekend!

Veterans Day Open House and Charity Hockey game 2017

What a wonderful turnout we had for our 4th Annual Veterans Day Open House!  Veterans, their families and those who just wanted to honor our heros with a “thank you for your service” strolled the museum to the sounds of organist Dave Wickerham.  Visitors also had the opportunity of being the first to hear our new 1920 Gaudin Dance Hall Organ play.  We were pleased to partner with Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs, Inc. as this years charity.  Veteran Mike Ronan is pictured here with Julie, his pup he received from Guardian Angels.  Mike told his very touching story to our guests and we so happy to hear how Julie turned his life around.  We thank all who donated and hope to see you all again next year!
