5th Annual Vintage Auto Show at Deering EstatePosted on: March 12th, 2017 by Staff Writer
The Deering Estate, in collaboration with the Antique Automotive Club of America – South Florida Region, will host the 5th annual Vintage Auto Show on Sunday, March 12, 2017. Car enthusiasts of all ages can enjoy a variety of vintage cars from 1959 and older. Children can participate in a scavenger hunt using photo clues to identify a selection of vintage automobiles. There will also be Pinewood Derby Race Car races throughout the day where children can bring their own car to race on the tracks. Guests can also enjoy old fashion lawn games on the main lawn or take a guided tour of the historic houses at 10:30 am and 3:00 pm, as well as a tour of the natural areas at 12:30 pm. The 1950 International Harvester Truck, which was donated to the Deering Estate Foundation, will also be on display. The truck was purchased brand new in Chicago by Marion Deering McCormick, Charles Deering’s daughter. After Mrs. McCormick passed away in 1965, the truck passed to her son and was maintained by the McCormick family until they donated it to the Deering Estate Foundation. Food & beverages will be available for purchase including wings & beer provided by Sports Grille. General Admission is $12 for adults and $7 for youth (ages 4-14).
