Cars 'R' Stars @ PPG  Returns for our NINTH year
  on Sunday June 10, 2018
OUR THEME - "ASK THE MAN WHO OWNS ONE"
Will Celebrate the best of Packard History
and
The 90th Birthday of the
PACKARD PROVING GROUNDS

 Profits from this event help us to preserve and restore the Historic Packard Proving Grounds
                          
  8am to 3pm
Our 2016 event featured "Fins and Family Haulers" and was a huge success.  Finned cars from the 40's, 50's and 60's and station wagons from 1930 to 1979 were very well received by our guests, with lots of attention generated by the famous Ford Country Squire wagon used in filming the "Mad Men" series.  Last year's "Hoods in the Rear" featured rear-engine cars, and we filled the Feature Car area with a 1948 Tucker, a 1948 Tatra, and THREE of the remaining Stout Scarabs, of which only 9 were built!  Several Corvairs, VWs, Porsches, an Isetta, a Delorean an Amphicar and a Fiat Jolly were among the fabulous gathering of rear engine cars in our Feature Area. 
THE ALGONAC/CLAY TWP HISTORICAL MUSEUM STAFF WILL BE BACK, ACTING AS DOCENTS TO MAKE THE MISS AMERICA X DISPLAY ENJOYABLE FOR ALL.  Look for it INDOORS in the Tank Test building, where some of the Feature cars will be displayed along with Miss America X.  This is the tallest building on the site, near the DJ and the FOOD.
