The Deering Estate at Cutler, 16701 SW 72 Ave., in collaboration with the Antique Automotive Club of America – South Florida Region, will host the third annual Vintage Auto Show supported by Mercedes-Benz of Cutler Bay on Sunday, Mar. 15, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Car enthusiasts of all ages can enjoy a variety of vintage cars from 1954 and older. Children can participate in a scavenger hunt using photo clues to identify a selection of vintage automobiles. There also will be Pinewood Derby Race Car races throughout the day where children can bring their own car to race on the tracks.
The 100 Ladies of Deering will be hosting an Old Fashioned Cake Walk and selling vintage treats to support their philanthropic circle composed of women dedicated to helping preserve the cultural and natural heritage of the Deering Estate. Guests can also enjoy old-fashioned lawn games or 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. Food and beverages will be available for purchase including wings and beer provided by Sports Grille.
The 1950 International Harvester Truck, which was donated to the Deering Estate Foundation, 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.
General admission is $12 for adults and $7 for youth (ages 4-14); free for Deering Estate Foundation members. For more information on the Vintage Auto Show at the Deering Estate at Cutler, visit www.deeringestate.org or call the Deering Estate Ticket Office at 305-235- 1668, ext. 233.
