Summer is officially here and in full swing and, with it, the usual spate of car shows, cruise ins and miles and miles of open road. A lot has happened in the last couple month, so let’s take a look at some of the most recent HVA award winners.
This August, the HVA is partnering with the Antique Automobile Club of America Museum in Hershey, PA, to offer a once-in-a-lifetime chance to not only check out the 1986 comedy classic, but also spend a little time with one of the film’s stars. No, it’s not Ferris Bueller himself Matthew Broderick, but it is the car he drove around Chicago with his best friend Cameron Frye (Alan Ruck) and girlfriend Sloane Peterson (Mia Sara) in the iconic film Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.
We spend a lot time focusing on people and places in the U.S., but as we all know, there exists a thriving car culture in Canada as well. In keeping with our museum-centric theme this month, we put together a list of just a few of the must-see car museums that can be found north of the border. If you’re headed that way this summer, be sure to check these great museums out!
Summertime is a great time to get out on the open road and check out the many wonderful car museums dotting the country. We’ve touched base with a few to find out what they have planned for this summer and will continue to do so with museums across the country throughout the year. Check ‘em out and then get out there and enjoy!
Five cars are being celebrated this month at the Historic Vehicle Association’s Cars at the Capital exhibition in Washington, D.C. All are on the National Historic Vehicle Register and are recognized as historically significant by the Library of Congress. Anthony Mason reports.
When the original Highland Green 1968 Ford Mustang GT from the classic Steve McQueen film Bullitt resurfaced this year after decades of obscurity, the car immediately became a hot property.
Ford shocked the collector-car world at the 2018 North American International Auto Show, unveiling the 1968 Ford Mustang GT featured in film “Bullitt.” In case you weren’t in Detroit to see the ultracool classic in person, the car is now on display on an even more prominent platform, our nation’s National Mall in Washington, D.C.
An original 1968 Ford Mustang from Bullitt is currently on display in a special glass box in the capital of the United States.
For car enthusiasts, the 1968 Ford Mustang driven by Steve McQueen in Bullitt represents everything that’s great about America. So it’s appropriate that this movie icon will be displayed on the National Mall among other American landmarks.
