Coordinated by Neal Rein ‘66, star classics like the supercharged Cord 812 from 1937 were on display, as was a 1924 Ford Model T, 1926 Ford Model T Tudor, a 1930 Ford Model A, modified Ford roadsters, glorious 1950s Chevrolets and even a fire-engine red Mercury Woody!

Several hundred attendees enjoyed the cars, campus tours, concessions and a D.J., spinning tunes from the times when these cars were new!

Now that the All-Classes Picnic and Car Show has been reconstituted, how to make it better, more fun and more inclusive was a lively topic of discussion. Join the discussion and send your ideas for the 2017 show to Connect@UHEF.org!
