Deering Estate at Cutler to host Vintage Auto Show on Mar. 10

The Deering Estate at Cutler, in collaboration with the Antique Automotive Club of America–South Florida Region, will host the 2013 Vintage Auto Show on Sunday, Mar. 10, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Car enthusiasts of all ages can enjoy a variety of vintage cars from the 1920s through 1950s. General Admission is $12 for adults and $7 for youth (ages 4- 14). The Deering Estate at Cutler is located at 16701 SW 72 Ave.

The 1950 International Harvester Truck, which was donated to the Deering Estate Foundation, also will be on display. The truck was purchased brand new in Chicago by Marion Deering McCormick, Charles Deering’s daughter. After Mrs. McCormick passed away in 1965, the truck passed to her son and was maintained by the McCormick family until they donated it to the Deering Estate Foundation.

Guests can take a guided tour of the historic houses at 10:30 a.m. and 3 p.m., as well as a tour of the natural areas at 12:30 p.m. It also is the final exhibition day of Speak Now, part of the Deering Estate Festival of the Arts.

Food and beverages will be available for purchase at the event. In addition, preordered picnics are available by Chef David Schwadron Catering and Joanna’s Marketplace for pickup or delivery. They can be contacted directly to place an order. Call 305-238-5881 for Chef David Schwadron Catering and 305-661-5777 for Joanna’s Marketplace.

  1. Deering, and our other parks, need a free admission policy for folks who qualify fo food stamps or medicaid. They can't afford the admission. These government owned and run tourism sites must have a policy whereby all citizens can partake of the experience and knowledge offered. Then we wonder why urban kids don't exhibit the gestalt.that comes from participating in our civilization. It's because we've excluded them. They can't ever get into Deering unless a school takes them and pays for it. I wonder how often that happens. Probably never?
