Father’s Day Motor Muster @ Henry Ford Museum

In Traveling & Antiques on June 18, 2012 at 12:43 am

Every year The Henry Ford Museum hosts the Motor Muster http://www.henryfordmuseum.com/events/motorMuster.aspx  You have a chance to celebrate automotive history from 1933 to 1976 in the streets of Greenfield Village.   Hundreds of classic cars, vintage trucks and bicycles were everywhere you looked.   Dreamy,simply dreamy.  I forgot my camera.  I still can’t believe it.  Even though these are cell phone images, I just love this one above.  Standing behind the rope we couldn’t tell what type of radio this was, but it was cool.   The owner of this radio did not use the receiver, just the speakers.   It still was cool hearing Big Band music through it.

Here is my youngest son looking adorable in this Vintage Peddle Pusher Car.  He’s a bit large for pedal cars, but he just had to try out the police car and the hot rod in the background.  I couldn’t resist taking this image.

Here is a 1934 Morgan Super Sport and in the background is a 1935 Dodge Brothers Sedan.  The Morgan is a rare and unusual car with its 3 wheel configuration and V-twin engine that is mounted sideways in front of the radiator.  It was very cool to get to see one in person.  There is loads of information on http://www.conceptcarz.com/vehicle/z9297/Morgan-Super-Sport.aspx

    To the left is a 1963 Ford T-Bird.  This particular convertible came with the optional fiberglass tonneau cover that was paint matched to the car.  The tonneau cover covered the back seat giving the car a more modern and sportier appearance.  What a beautiful ride!

Can anyone name the color?  Submit a post!

To the right is a beautiful 1967 Buick Wildcat convertible.  This car is black with a black interior accented by tires with red side walls (which is period correct).  This is one LONG car!  What do you think?  15 or 16 feet?

    Gotta love vintage bicycles.  There weren’t as many bicycles as there were cars, but what were there were beautiful.   The Donald Duck bike was cute and whimsical and VERY rare.  All these bicycles were from the 1950’s and looked to be in excellent condition.

We’d love to hear your stories and thoughts on these beauty’s.  Do you have a pedal pusher car story?  Does anyone own one of these featured cars?  Write to us and share.
