The Classic Car Club of America Museum will bring you The Experience, (June 2-5); a new exhibition of European Luxury cars, and a trip through the “Irish Hills of Michigan.”
Mark your calendars and join us here in Hickory Corners, MI for a great weekend of good food, entertainment, and a picturesque Michigan tour. Our 2023 European Luxury Exhibit will feature Classics not seen anywhere on the Gilmore Complex.
The Experiencing European Luxury will welcome you to the Gilmore Campus on Friday, June 2 for a “European style” BBQ, and a tour of the new 2023 exhibit that features 3 loaned Classics not seen anywhere on the Gilmore Campus. Friday evening will end with a VIP gathering on campus to hear the Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra Quartet, taking us through the sounds of Europe’s famous classical music composers.
Saturday will be filled with special events, including an on-campus luncheon, jurying of your great classic cars, and more music, and wine tastings. Also, at the CCCAM Banquet we will be gathering at the newest contemporary site in downtown Kalamazoo called The Catalyst Center. With floor to ceiling windows and a beautiful bright interior. This year each course will focus on a different European Country and the tastes that made each region famous! The same caterer from the Grand Opening will ensure this is a dining experience to remember.
Sunday we will leave from the Gilmore campus to the “Irish Hills of Michigan” for a two-day tour of this historic part of the state. Dan Cherry writes “As immigration into the newly christened Michigan state territory reached its peak, a small knot of Irish immigrants, some seeking new life in the United States, called a small portion of northern Lenawee County home. The rolling hills and crystal lakes, it is said, reminded them of their home country and they acquired that tangible reminder of Ireland. “
For those who want to experience this tour in luxury, we will be auctioning off the opportunity to tour this countryside in the newest addition to our collection, our 1937 Packard V12 Victoria Convertible coachwork by Rollston. The tour package comes complete with a chauffeur.
We will visit Ye Ole Carriage Shop, a collection of Michigan made cars as well as other eccentric memorabilia of the last 100 years. We will also dine at a local favorite restaurant situated on one of the many picturesque lakes in the region.
