ARCHBOLD – Antique car collectors from throughout the Midwest will be gathering at Sauder Village Saturday to showcase their vintage automobiles.
More than 100 antique cars are already registered for the event, offering a unique view of the automobiles of days gone by. Guests will have a chance to ride in an antique car, visit farm animals, try hands-on activities and watch demonstrations during the 10th annual gathering.
Sauder Village offers a unique backdrop for collectors to share their vintage cars with others. Again this year, car enthusiasts are coming from throughout Ohio, Michigan and Indiana to display their antique automobiles in the historic village, which features more than 40 historic homes, shops and community buildings.
“The cars on display at Sauder Village will be from a much earlier time period than some car shows since we require every car to be older than 1942,” said Kim Krieger, Media Relations. “Some cars will even date back to the early 1900s – making this show quite unique!”
From a Ford Model A, Willys Overland and Falcon Knight to a Hudson Super Six, Crosley Liberty Sedan and a Maxwell AB, there will be a wide variety of unique automobiles on display again this year. Throughout the day guests will be able to look at the cars and visit with car owners.
Many exhibitors plan to give demonstrations and will be available to answer questions about these unique vehicles. Throughout the afternoon, guests will even have an opportunity to take a ride in an antique car. Activities will take place throughout the day, weather permitting, and some are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Historic Sauder Village is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m.-3:30 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and each Sunday afternoon from noon-4 p.m. The Historic Village is closed Mondays, except holidays. Admission is $18 for adults and $12 for students ages 6-16.
Children 5 and younger are always free with family and Sauder Village members receive free admission to the Historic Village for an entire year. And again this year, children 16 and younger are free every Sunday this season.
