That should be an easy question for someone who is into cars as much as I am but it's not. You see, I mostly worry about the best craftsmen to take care of our old cars and I have a long list of specialists to go to. My dilemma is primarily my wife's modern daily driver. It's not an exotic car but the dealer which performed all the routine service on it since it was new was closed down by the manufacturer about a year ago. Since then, we've tried a couple different places but the chemistry just wasn't there. The dealer has other area locations but driving twenty miles for an oil change is a bit excessive.
So, we need your help. Where do you recommend as the best and most honest auto repair facility in the Akron area?
Classic Motorcar Auctions has teamed up with the Glenmoor Gathering of Significant Automobiles to present the first ever collector car auction to be held in conjunction with a concours in the state of Ohio. This exciting event will take place Saturday, September 18 from noon until 5:00 p.m. on the grounds of Glenmoor Country Club in Jackson Township, near Canton, Ohio.
A wide array of collector cars will be offered, including vintage sports cars, beautiful Classics, beefy muscle cars and other nostalgic vehicles. An original Porsche 356A Speedster will be among the one hundred or so vehicles to be auctioned, as well as a pre-war, twelve cylinder Lincoln. In addition to the great cars, the auction will begin with a special offering unique and original automotive memorabilia. There will be items and vehicles for every taste and budget and you won't have to fly all the way to Scottsdale to get the auction experience. Check out www.classicmotorcarauctions.com for a full listing of all consignments and more information. I hope to see you there!
Labor Day may be the official end of summer but for us here at Car Chase it means the Glenmoor Gathering is right around the corner! For one weekend the center of the car universe is right here in northeast Ohio. Car owners and car enthusiasts from across the United States and Canada come to Canton for what has become one of the top concours events in the country. Even if, like me, you are not a car expert you can certainly find plenty of things to appreciate during the event. My husband and I plan to enjoy a night out on Saturday for the Artists' Reception and Gala Dinner and then return on Sunday with the kids. I challenge you to find a better family day value than the Sunday concours. (Children 12 and under and military personnel in uniform are admitted free.) The kids enjoy the coloring books, Junior Judges contest and the Glenmoor Garage Christmas Tree Challenge. Chef Meeker's cooking demonstration is always entertaining and the automotive art is world class.
¦and then there are the cars! I could fill a week's worth of blogs reciting the unbelievable cars that I have seen at the Gathering. Names you know like Packard, Lincoln, Porsche, marques you think you know like Duesenberg and Rolls Royce and lines you may have never heard of before like Horche and Bizzarrini.
