400 “orphan” vehicles expected at annual Ypsilanti show
Auburn Hills, Michigan – Some 400 “orphan” vehicles are expected to attend the 10th annual Ypsilanti Orphan Car Show on June 4, 2006 in Michigan. An “orphan” is considered to be any make or model of car, truck or motorcycle that has been out of production for at least seven years. The show regularly draws such defunct makes as Studebaker, Kaiser, DeSoto and Nash.
The show is open to all factory-stock, unmodified vehicles and this year will feature foreign-built models. Advance registration is required for vehicle owners, with a deadline of May 24. All proceeds from the show benefit the Ypsilanti Automotive Heritage Museum. For more information, visit www.ypsiautoheritage.org.
