With the nation’s eyes turned toward Indianapolis this month for the centennial of the Indy 500, it’s also worth pointing out that the state of Indiana at one point rivaled Michigan as the largest state in the nascent automotive industry. Companies like Stutz, Cord, Auburn, Duesenberg, Haynes, Marmon and Studebaker all called the Hoosier State home – enough marques to fill an entire book – and the Classic Car Club of America intends to pay tribute to them all next month by inviting any Indiana-built car to its CCCA Museum Experience.
The CCCA Museum Experience, scheduled for June 3-5 on the grounds of the Gilmore Car Museum in Hickory Corners, Michigan, will welcome both Full Classic and non-Classic Indiana-built cars as well as the stately Full Classics from other states and countries that we’ve come to expect from a CCCA event. The weekend’s schedule will include a barbecue on the museum grounds Friday evening, followed by a driving tour, automotive flea market, automotive fine art show, and car corral on Saturday, then a judged car show on Sunday.
“For CCCA members who have not visited the CCCA Museum and Library recently, this is a good year to do so,” said Walter Blenko, CCCA Museum president. “There is really nothing else like it in the world and this is the only museum devoted solely to Classic automobiles.”
