Antique Autos in History Park
September 2019


The weather was perfect for the 19th Antique Autos in History Park event, with sunshine and happy people strolling the grounds. There were 150 antique autos in attendance, which included many different types of vehicles. Besides the usual Model Ts, Model As and Chevys there were some rare ones such as a Thomas Flyer, an unrestored Oakland, a Detroit Electric, the 1889 Olsen Hunt, a Mitchell, a 1903 Haynes Apperson, along with many Packards, Linclons and Pierce Arrows. The featured autos this year were from the Durant Motors Inc., which included Star, Durant, Flint and Locomobile.

This year’s event had many things for visitors and participants to do and see, such as the dance performance by the Swing Cats, singing performance by The Fabulous JewelTones, music by the Toot Sweet Jazz Band, early day gas exhibits by the Early Day Gas Engine and Tractor Association, blacksmith demos, print shop demos, crafts and collectibles, trolley rides, Barbershop Quartet, Charlie Chaplin, and a Durant Company movie, and open houses.

Everyone enjoyed the event this year and we look forward to next year’s show. Thank you to all that brought their antique autos and those who helped work the event on Sunday.
