  • Three event highlights
    1. There will be two demonstrations of a team of students assembling a fully functional Model T from a pile of parts in less than 15 minutes. One demonstration will be at 10 a.m. and the other at 2 p.m. at Harnly Gardens north of the gazebo.
    2. A youth judging program, Hagerty's Operation Ignite, will be offered for the third year in a row. The program gives young people the opportunity to get up close with great classic cars and ask questions directly of their owners as they make their own judgments about cars in the show.
    The event is free for youth to participate, but reservations are recommended to make sure there are enough materials for everyone. Reservations can be made by contacting Tabetha Salsbury at 231-313-7475 or tsalsbury@hagerty.com.
    3. Attendees also will have an opportunity to buy a signed book about automotive metal shaping by Ed Barr, assistant professor of technology. Barr will give a metal shaping demonstration at 1 p.m. before the signing at Templeton Hall.
    Why you should attend
    Jared Coho, junior, Bellwood, Pa., and president of the club said the show is unique in the nation because of who organizes it.
    "It's all student-run by the club to focus on promoting automotive restoration and the college," he said.
