16th Annual Ypsilanti Orphan Car Show

Sep 23, 2012

An automobile whose parent company no longer produces that particular make here in the US. Thats an Orphan, or loosely just discontinued and uncommon but not forgotten.

A rare part of our rich, automotive history and a treat to walk among hundreds of these cars gathered from Northeast America and Canada. All here in Ypsilanti for an annual show by the faithful stewards and owners who are dedicated to their preservation and unusual past.

Walk through our yesteryears to see Hudson, Tucker, Studbaker, Kaiser-Frazer, Nash, Citroen, AMC, REO plus many, many more.

We also have a local hero here in Ypsilanti, The Chevrolet Corvair. Which was produced at our local Willow Run assembly plant through the 1960s.

Cars drive Riverside park and are reviewed by a set of judges who share their vast knowledge of these iconic automobiles and award the finest of 18 different classes, which are mostly by manufacturer and era.

If you are a fan of Cars the movie you can find many of the models these characters were created after.

-Doc the Fabulous Hudson Hornet
-Tow Mater an International Boom Truck
-Sarge a Willys Jeep
-Lizzy a Ford Model T
-Stanley a Stanley Steamer
-Grem and Acer an AMC Gremlin and AMC Pacer
-Uncle Topolino a Fiat Topolino
And a few others I have probably missed.

The $5 entrance fee goes to support the Ypsilanti Automotive Heritage Museum.
Children under 12 are free.
