Vintage Cars Roll Out in Lansing
If you’re a fan of vintage cars, you may already know what is rolling into town, and these classics will be coming from all over the country. The 26th annual Oldsmobile Homecoming Car Show & Swap Meet rolls out June 16 and features the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Oldsmobile and Curved Dash Oldsmobiles.
Keeping the Oldsmobile history resonating through Lansing, the homecoming will display show-car aisles, a car corral and a swap meet area for enjoyment. The car show and swap meet are scheduled for the day before Father’s Day. The event will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 6101 Anacapri Blvd. in Lansing, the new location of the Auto-Owners Insurance complex. The event is open to all models of Oldsmobiles and Oldsmobile-powered vehicles.
Lansing resident Ransom Eli Olds founded Olds Motors Works –which will later become Oldsmobile – on Aug. 21, 1897. He helped create the supplier industry in the modern age and trained numerous future carmakers.
The Oldsmobile Homecoming is hosted by R.E. Olds Chapter of the Oldsmobile Club of America. The nonprofit chapter was started by Oldsmobile Club of America members in the mid-Michigan area in 1984 for those interested in Oldsmobiles from 1897 through 2004. The chapter is best known for hosting the annual car show and swap meet, which typically gathers more than 500 display vehicles, 100 vendors and 30-40 cars for sale.
Admission is free to the public or register a vehicle for a fee. For more information, visit reolds.org/homecoming.htm.
