Old Car Festival... Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village

Where was I this past weekend.
In my natural habitat = old cars.

Old Car Festival
Sept 6-7, 2008
America's Longest Running Antique Car Show
Take in the spectacle as the streets and grounds of Greenfield Village are filled with sights, sounds, and smells of hundreds of authentic vehicles from the 1890s through 1932. Enjoy a self-guided tour through this fabulous exposition and talk to proud owners about their treasured vehicles. Watch drivers engage in games of skill, see a Model T assembled in just minutes, attend fascinating lectures and sit back and enjoy our experts sharing “car talks” while vintage vehicles pass by.

In this 58th year of the Old Car Festival, we celebrate a number of important anniversaries and milestones for the American automobile industry. Among the most important is the 100th anniversary of Henry Ford’s Model T. This truly universal car put the Ford Motor Company on the map and America on wheels. You’ll be treated to an amazing array of Model T Fords and hundreds of other unique and historically significant vehicles of America’s motoring past. Old Car Festival is free to members and free with Greenfield Village admission.

That looks like fun. I just read an article in the last Car and Driver that came about a car museum in one of H Ford's original factories where they began building the Model T. I'd love to visit that. Can't remember the name of it offhand.

Because the antique cars are going back into storage, until next year.
