Coming this Sunday: One of the great classic car shows in America and a Father’s Day tradition in Detroit, the annual EyesOn Design Automotive Exhibition. Here’s a full report from Wednesday’s media preview.
This coming Sunday is Father’s Day and time for a Motor City tradition: the EyesOn Design Automotive Design Exhibition at the beautiful Edsel and Eleanor Ford House in Grosse Point Shores. The show, which features more than 300 expertly selected vehicles, will once again benefit the Detroit Institute of Ophthalmology.
This year’s theme is House Style, showcasing the designs of the major automakers and their legendary design bosses. Special vehicle categories will celebrate the work of Harley Earl, George Walker, Virgil Exner, Raymond Loewy, and other famed styling chiefs of America and Europe. Other groups include Jazz Age Coupes and Golden Era Classics 1925-1948. It’s going to be a great show and naturally, we’ll have full event coverage here at Mac’s Motor City Garage. In the meantime, below are a few vehicles from Wednesday’s media preview. We hope to see you there.
