2012 Standish Depot Car Show entries


The Standish Model A and Model T Show returned July 13, 2013, this time as a co-project of the Standish Historical Depot and Welcome Center and Richardson Ford on US-23 in Standish.


Approximately 50 vintage vehicles lined the lot under a pleasant sky. The Shopko "next door" gave permission for spectators and attendees to use its parking lot for the show.


Entries were restricted to vehicles manufactured in or before 1931, which was the year Model A production ended. A new category, the speedster class, was open to people who turned Model As and Ts into hot rods but kept the old engines. Registrants came from across the Lower Peninsula and the Ohio border region. Several entries were shown by area residents.
