Golden Memories

The Golden Memories Automobile Gathering is exclusively for original or authentically restored vehicles produced in 1968 or earlier. The event is sponsored by Friends of Sloan*Longway, making it free to exhibitors and attendees. We welcome all authentic and original automobiles 1968 and prior. No visual modifications are allowed. Registration takes place between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. the day of the event. Driver and one passenger will receive free admission to the show grounds, Sloan Museum, and 10% off all Sloan Museum store purchases. The first 200 vehicles will receive dash plaques.

The show is free and open to the public. Sloan Museum is currently free to all visitors as well, every day through December 9, 2018. This event is non-competitive, so there will be no judging; just a relaxing day with friends and fellow car enthusiasts who love well-preserved and restored automobiles. The event will include a lottery drawing for the dash plaque vehicle of the 2019 show, as well as special recognition and a pass-in review for vehicles celebrating 50, 75, and 100 year anniversaries.


Congratulations to our 2017 dash plaque featured vehicle: 1930 Ford A owned by Jim & Jackie Booth of Davison.
