What are orphan cars? They’re the castoffs and misfits of the collector car world—the lapsed and failed brands that make automotive history so rich and fascinating. The strict definition of an orphan car can get a bit complicated, but we leave those details to the show’s expert organizing team. As veteran attendees of the Ypsi Orphan Show, here’s what we know you will find on the display field at Riverside Park:
Packards, Studebakers, Hudsons, Nashes, Hupmobiles, Kaisers, Frazers, Willys-Overlands, Reos, King Midgets, Maxwells, Tuckers, Franklins, Corvairs, Edsels…
And many, many more forgotten and obscure automotive makes. There will also be a special feature category this year for orphan convertibles. Truly, here is an opportunity to see cars you just won’t find anywhere else. The Ypsilanti Orphan Car Show is widely regarded around the collector car world as the finest event of its kind. Copied, but never duplicated.
Of course, you’ll find complete coverage of the 2015 show here at Mac’s Motor City Garage. In the meantime, here’s a small gallery of cars from past events. We hope to see you there.
