Cadillac-LaSalle automobiles will be featured at the Classic Car Club of America Museum’s 2014 “Experience,” scheduled for Sunday, June 1 on the campus of the Gilmore Car Museum – home of the CCCA Museum.
Both full classic and non-classic Cadillac automobiles built from 1903 to 1962 are welcome. Automobile owners need not be CCCA members to display their cars at the 2014 “Experience.” In addition to Cadillac-LaSalle automobiles, full classics owned by members may be displayed on the show field. Prior to the “Experience” on Sunday, a CCCA Grand Classic will be held on Saturday, May 31. Only full classics owned by members may be displayed at this event.
“For CCCA members—and Cadillac-LaSalle enthusiasts—who have not visited the CCCA Museum and Library recently, this is a great year to do so,” said Howard Freedman, Museum president. “There is really nothing else like it in the world. This is the only museum devoted solely to classic automobiles.”
A 1913 Cadillac Torpedo Touring Car and a 1932 LaSalle Phaeton, both unrestored originals owned by restorer Steve Babinsky will be on display
On Friday, there will be a driving tour and automotive art show. The art show will be held throughout the weekend and will include an introduction to automotive art by artist David Chapple. Sunday events, in addition to the classic automobiles on display, will include a silent auction of unique automobile-related items. A narrated awards-drive-by will take place on Sunday afternoon followed by a post-show farewell supper.
2014 “Experience” attendees can see the CCCA Museum, the Gilmore Car Museum, the H.H. Franklin Museum, the Pierce-Arrow Museum, the Ford Model A Museum and the Tucker Archives, as will all be open. The CCCA Library and the Gilmore Car Museum library are also available by appointment. The CCCA Museum contains not only a fine collection of full classic automobiles but a world class radiator mascot collection.
