So, who's bringing what? I plan to be there with the 27 Fordor.
I plan to be there with our '14 Touring.
I'm bringing my Model S
Once again, I cannot go
We hope to make it but have yet price a hotel for the weekend? Bud.
Not cheap but several of us are staying at "Adoba." It use to be a Hyatt ? (i believe) and is not sold out as of last week. They are close and have a lot of parking.
We're taking the N and K,
When is it??
I'll have my 24 Touring and 26 Tudor there. Best old car event around. Hope to see you all there. Tom
Richard, it will be September 6th and 7th. Always weekend after Labor Day.
I just registered today. I will be bringing the '19 Runabout.
My husband and I are going to the Old Car Festival and we are bringing our 1914 Model T Touring. It will be celebrating it's 100th birthday. We are coming from Lockport, New York. Surprising that not many people come from NY which is not that far from Dearborn. We go through Canada to make the trip. 3rd time going. 1st year the 1926 went, second year the 1927 went and now the 1914.
Rob, thanks for the heads up on the Adoba Hotel. I'm now booked in there as well. Just look for the guy driving the cheap, mass produced Ford.
We stayed there last year, and it was Dearborn's best kept secret. I think because of the new name it didn't show up on searches and so there were rooms available while several other hotels were booked up.
See you there. I'll have one mass produced Ford (N) and one less produced Ford (K).
I sold the '13 RHD Fire Brigade car ... so, alas, I'm not going to attend. Old "Rusty" isn't interesting enough to drag 1,000 miles for the festival.
First time able to go. Randy Witz is joining me and we're driving the '14 touring from NY.
Way to go R.V. I'm sure you'll find it worthwhile. It's the ultimate old car good time. This time, I'm hoping to get some pics of my car at Henry Ford's house. It's only a five minute drive from the festival.
Dave,Don't forget the powerhouse when you are at Fairlane! Go to the lower level and see if that water cooled X engine is still there?? Bud.
Kenneth, last time I checked, the house was closed due to renovations and last year, the grounds were closed too. Hopefully the grounds at least will be open.
Walked around the grounds end of April. House was closed.
The grounds are open, the buildings are not. According to Henry Ford Estate:
The historic buildings on the Estate are currently closed for restoration. However, the grounds remain open year-round for the general public to explore and discover. Maps highlighting walking loops of the Jens Jensen landscape are available on site. The grounds are open Monday through Friday until 6 p.m. Admittance to the grounds and on-site parking are free of charge.
The historic buildings of the Estate will be opened on a limited basis for pre-arranged group tours. To inquire about availability for a group tour, contact Donna Buchanan or 313.884.4222.
The great thing about the Old Car Festival is it is about ALL old cars not just Fords. Where else can you see such a wide variety of fine automobiles driving around?!
It must be the spirit of the Old Car Festival holiday. I am opening my garage door so my friend can park his '08 Buick inside since he's opting to drive it from western New York.
My missus and I will have our '24 and '16 Touring cars there and my son will have his '12 along with a 29 roadster if he can stop catching his dash wiring on fire. If Fun Projects ever duplicates the small ammeter, I know my son will get one for his Model A.
Tbomas, too bad the grounds are closed on the weekend. Guess I won't be getting any pictures again.
