2010 Ford Flex
Detroit, Michigan – The Ford Flex has been named the most likely vehicle of 2009 to be desired by future collectors by the Friends of the National Automotive History Collection (NAHC) in Detroit.
Members of the organization, which supports the automotive collection at the Detroit Public Library, vote annually to predict the “Collectible Vehicle of the Future” from the year’s new American-built cars and trucks. The Flex was selected from eight all-new vehicles launched in 2009.
“This selection is unique among all the ‘Vehicle of the Year’ awards, because it is selected by car buffs who know what future collectors will value,” said Charles Hyde, chairman of the NAHC Board of Trustees. “We asked our members to predict which of this year’s new vehicles will turn heads in the Woodward Cruise of 2034.”
Previous winners are the 2008 Dodge Challenger, 2007 Dodge Viper SRT10, 2006 Pontiac Solstice, 2005 Ford Mustang, 2004 Chrysler 300, 2003 Dodge Viper, 2002 Ford Thunderbird, 1996 Chrysler Sebring Convertible, and 1995 Buick Riviera and Oldsmobile Aurora.
