More than 100 antique automobiles will be on display May 21 at Sauder Village in Archbold for the 7th Annual Antique Car Gathering.
Antique car collectors from throughout the Midwest are planning to display their antique automobiles for all ages. Guests will also have a chance to ride in and even drive an antique.
“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.”
Models will include a 1906 Cadillac Model M Surrey, a 1916 Reo MG Touring, a 1928 Rolls Royce, and a 1942 Willys World War II Jeep. 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 have an opportunity to take a ride in an antique car, and there will be a special drawing for one adult to win a chance to actually drive a car. Some activities will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Sauder Village is open Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m.-3:30 p.m., Saturday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.. and Sunday, noon-4 p.m. Admission is $16 for adults and $10 for students ages 6-16. Children five and under are always free with family. This year, children 16 and under are free every Sunday.
