10th annual Vintage Auto Show at Deering Estate

The Deering Estate, in collaboration with the Antique Automotive Club of America – South Florida Region, will host the 10th annual Vintage Auto Show on Sunday, November 6th from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Car enthusiasts of all ages can experience a variety of vintage cars, from 1965 and older, displayed on the historic grounds of the Deering Estate.

As a salute to Charles Deering, first chairman of the International Harvester Company, The Deering Estate’s 1950 International Harvester Truck will also be on display. The harvester truck was originally purchased in Chicago by Marion Deering McCormick, Charles Deering’s daughter. After Mrs. McCormick passed away in 1965, the truck was inherited by her son and maintained by the McCormick family until it was donated to the Deering Estate Foundation.

Tickets to the event are $15 for visitors (ages 15 and up), and $7 for children (14 and under). Admission is free for Deering Estate Foundation members and children under 4 years old. Tickets and foundation member tickets are available online via Park Link. Create your Park Link account today.
