2012 preview


18th Glenmoor Gathering
will be held September 14-16;
2012 feature classes announced

Following a record-setting year in 2011, the Glenmoor Gathering will present another field of outstanding automobiles and motorcycles in 2012. Dates are September 14-16.

Featured classes in 2012 will include early supercharged automobiles, steam-powered automobiles, the Allard sports car, automobiles designed by Zagato and the Tucker automobile. The motorcycle class will feature classic 1928-48 American motorcycles and there will be a display of “mini” cars.

Leading the line-up of early supercharged cars will be the legendary “Mormon Meteor,” a 1935 Duesenberg race car that was raced on the salt flats and was recently restored to its authentic 1930’s condition.

Another unique class for 2012 will be “The Trans Atlantics” class, which will feature European and U. K. coachwork with American engines.

On Friday afternoon, there’ll be two seminars. The first will feature a fresh look at the legendary Studebaker Avanti by Andrew Beckman, archivist of the Studebaker National Museum. That seminar will be followed by “How to Buy a Collector Car” with Wayne Carini of “Chasing Classic Cars” and long-time car collector Ralph Marano.

The 2012 weekend activities will include the Passport Transport Countryside Tour, a cocktail party and Gala Dinner, cooking demonstrations, a Junior Judges’ program and other family activities.

During the 2012 concours automotive art by a variety of artists will be displayed and on sale. Several automotive authors will also be in attendance to sell and autograph their books.

On Sunday, there will again be a display on the club’s front lawn of “World Class Performance Cars,” including Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Porsches.

Approximately 5,000 people attended the 2011 event, which included invitation-only vehicles from throughout the U.S.—from as far away as California and Florida.
