Vintage Auto Show at the Deering Estate

MIAMI (October 12, 2017)

The Deering Estate, in collaboration with the Antique Automotive Club of America – South Florida Region, will host the Vintage Auto Show on Sunday, November 5, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Car enthusiasts of all ages can enjoy a variety of vintage cars from 1959 and older. Historic tractors from the International Harvester Collectors Club Florida Chapter 27 will also be on-site. Children can participate in a scavenger hunt using photo clues to identify a selection of vintage automobiles. There will also be Pinewood Derby Race Car races throughout the day where children can bring their own car to race on the tracks. Please note that there will be limited access to the historic homes.

The 1950 International Harvester Truck, which was donated to the Deering Estate Foundation, will also be on display. The truck was purchased brand new in Chicago by Marion Deering McCormick, Charles Deering’s daughter. After Mrs. McCormick passed away in 1965, the truck passed to her son and was maintained by the McCormick family until they donated it to the Deering Estate Foundation.

Food & beverages will be available for purchase including wings & beer provided by Sports Grille. Guests can also enjoy specialty teas from Serendip-A-Tea.

General Admission is $12 for adults and $7 for youth (ages 4-14).

Interested in having a vintage automobile on display at the show? The deadline to register is November 1, 2017. For more information, please visit the Deering Estate website.
