Orphan vehicles are makes (not models) of cars,trucks,motorcycles no longer manufactured. A large percentage have been out of business over fifty years.
The show features a "pass-in-review' by make or group, where we have several automotive historians describing the vehicles as they pass by.
The show has gained national recognition, appearing on national TV several times, written up in the New York Times twice, featured in AUTOWEEK magazine, Cars & Parts, Old Cars Weekly, US Auto Scene, Hemmings Motor News.
The New York Times writer actually drove a vintage car furnished by one of our committee members on the tour we do for early arrivals on the day before the show.
The Walter P. Chrysler Museum, located on DaimlerChrysler Headquarters campus, has been the show sponsor for 9 of its 11 years.
