For us at Car Chase, summer is car show season. We are excited to share with you the latest news release from the Glenmoor Gathering in Canton.
One of the highlighted features of the 2012 Gathering will be Allard, the legendary British sports cars launched by Sidney Allard immediately after World War Two. Allards carried lightweight European chassis and coachwork, which were coupled with powerful American engines. Carroll Shelby drove an Allard in the early 1950’s as did Corvette designer Zora Arkus-Duntov. A variety of Allard examples will be on display throughout the weekend.
In all, more than 200 vintage and classic American and European automobiles and motorcycles will be on the show field. There will be a display of Allard automobiles, “micro cars,” steam-powered cars and “The Trans Atlantics”—automobiles with European and U. K. coachwork and American engines.
On Friday afternoon, there’ll be two seminars. The first will be an automotive design seminar moderated by artist Peter Maier with automotive designers Bill Porter and Larry Turk. It will be followed by “How to Buy a Collector Car” with Wayne Carini of “Chasing Classic Cars” and collector car expert Ralph Marano.
Other weekend activities include the Passport Transport Countryside Tour, Classic Motorcars Collector Car Auction, cocktail party and Gala Dinner, cooking demonstrations, a Junior Judges’ program and other family activities. During the concours, automotive art by a variety of artists will be on display and for sale. Several automotive authors will also be in attendance to sell and autograph their books.
On Sunday, there will again be a separate, special display on the club’s front lawn of “World Class Performance Cars,” including Ferraris, Lamborghinis,
Maseratis, Vipers and Porsches.
