Are you a gearhead? Do you dig classic cars? Are you a history geek and track mankind’s progress based on its taste in automobiles? Or perhaps you honestly know nothing about cars, you just enjoy looking at them because they are cool and shiny? If you even remotely fit into any of these categories, then the place you want to be this weekend is the Michigan History Center for the 2021 R.E. Olds Museum Car Capital Auto Show.
Since 1993, the R.E. Olds Museum Car Capital Auto Show has brought together some seriously cool cars from a huge range of eras. This year, there are 64 different classes, 140 unique awards that will be given out and a $5,000 trophy budget for the lucky collector with the car that really knocks the judges and the audience out. Visitors to the Michigan History Center will be able to check out vintage pieces from the ’70s and ’80s, as well as some of the most classic of well-preserved cars from decades stretching as far back as the ’30s and ’40s. And it would be foolish to forget about all of the fascinating motorcycles that will also be present at the show. The R.E. Olds Museum Car Capital Auto Show will also hold a raffle to win one of four multi-drawer tool chest on wheels.
