Variety. There’s our one-word review of the huge collection of vehicles on display at The Henry Ford’s annual Motor Muster in Greenfield Village.
There are a matching pair of great two-day car events held each year on the scenic grounds of Greenfield Village at The Henry Ford: The Old Car Festival every Labor Day weekend, open to 1932 and earlier vehicles, (see last year’s coverage at MCG here) and the Motor Muster on Father’s Day weekend, featuring 1933 to 1976 vehicles. They’ve both become Motor City traditions.
The Motor Muster is enormous—we’ve seen estimates of 900 cars or more. On our tour of day one at the show this weekend, we didn’t try to count them, only to soak in as many as we could. The wide variety is equally impressive. Here are just a few of the memorable vehicles:
+ The 1957 Jaguar XKSS of Dick Harms
+ Kevin Sherwin’s 1973 Trans Am Super Duty 455
+ John Forster’s 1963 Ford F-250 pickup hauling a wild double-decker camper unit
+ A rare 1970 Chevrolet C10 panel exhibited by Wendell Johncox.
Actually, there were far more vehicles than can fit into one photo gallery, so MCG will be circling back with more in the coming days. The slide show below is the first installment.
