MiM ‘History of the American Auto- Ford vs. Chevrolet’ @ Dearborn Inn
Jul 8 @ 4:00 pm – Jul 12 @ 11:00 am

MiM History of the American Auto- Ford vs. Chevrolet

July 8 – 12, 2018

National Corvette Museum Curator, Derek E. Moore, will be leading a group of time-travelers on a fascinating expedition through American automotive history. In this tour we will see for ourselves the way that innovators, inventors, and entrepreneurs used the automobile as a vehicle to change our world forever.

Join us in Detroit, Michigan at our historic host hotel the Dearborn Inn.  In 1931, Henry Ford commissioned prominent architect Albert Kahn to design the Inn to provide lodging for a nearby airport.  Since then the Inn has seen major renovations but is still recognized as one of the premier historic hotels and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.

Beginning our journey at The Henry Ford, where Derek will give us a behind-the-scenes tour thru an impressive collection of historic vehicles. We will discover together how Henry Ford and the Dodge brothers drove America into a new era that changed the way we worked, played and connected with one another. While we’re here, feel free to explore other areas of interest to see artifacts belonging to George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and other Presidents, along with exhibits covering nearly every aspect of American history and innovation.

From there we will go on to Greenfield Village where people still get around by horse-drawn carriages, Model T, and steam powered locomotives. You will have the opportunity to watch craftspeople at work as you shop their goods, and see where Thomas Edison created his inventions, dine in an historic tavern, and see a recreation of the first Ford Motor Company factory.

In the last leg of the Ford vs Chevy Tour, we’ll take a very special trip to the GM Heritage Center to witness for ourselves how William Durant created a company to challenge Ford, calling it General Motors. Bringing together Oldsmobile, Cadillac,  Pontiac, Buick, and numerous other companies, along with men like Walter Chrysler and Louis Chevrolet, Durant took on Ford in an epic all-out battle that continues to this very day on showroom floors and race tracks around the world.

In this ongoing rivalry, we will see for ourselves how the innovations of one have always spurred on the passion and drive of the other. By the end of this tour you can be the judge of the winner.

Check back for registration in Early Spring 2018

Join us at the National Corvette Museum on March 3rd at 10:00AM for the re-introduction of our “MEchanics” program – sponsored by Autozone and Leachman Cadillac.

In this two hour class hosted by our own Daniel Decker, students of all ages will learn about the basics of car care from the professionals at the National Corvette Museum.

From changing a flat tire, to checking fluids in an engine, to changing a headlight bulb, students will learn first-hand how to care for their car and become more prepared drivers for whatever may happen on the road.

$20 – Includes museum admission
