The 49th annual Sloan Museum Auto Fair (SMAF) is almost here! As the longest running car show in Flint, we invite you to come share your memories and visit with the wonderful individuals and businesses that help make the show possible. The funds raised from this event help to support the acquisition, restoration, and maintenance of the Sloan Museum’s important collection of vehicles and automobile archives that are significant to Flint. Some of these vehicles are one-of-a-kind and they all need tender loving care.

In an effort to assure the safety and security of our event, State and CDC guidelines in regard to masks, attendance inside buildings and the train, and social distancing will be followed. All patrons should self-monitor and make themselves aware of mandates, laws, and recommendations in effect at the time of the show. Sanitizer will be available throughout the village.

Golden Memories

FREE EVENT for exhibitors and attendees

Date: Sunday, September 19, 2021
Event Time: 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
Vehicle Registration: 9 a.m.-12 p.m.
Location: Flint Cultural Center
Sponsored by: Friends of Sloan*Longway, Roaring 20's Ice Cream Parlor, and Hot Dog Heaven

Enjoy a car show featuring vehicles who have celebrated their golden 50th anniversary, free for both car owners and eventgoers. This very special event is exclusively for original or authentically restored vehicles produced in 1971 or earlier. No visual modifications are allowed. Golden Memories 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 first 175 vehicles receive dash plaques.
• Driver and one passenger will receive free admission to Flint Institute of Arts.
• Drawings every hour for two free hot dogs and an ice cream cone.
Suitcase Swap Meet: Vehicle owners can sell or trade item(s) small enough to fit into a suitcase next to their vehicle.
Vehicle Owner’s Choice Award: Vehicle owners can vote for the award winner.
Youngest Registrant Award: Given to the youngest registrant, this award inspires younger generations to keep our golden memories alive.
• Special recognition for cars 50, 75, & 100 years-old with a pass-in review.
• Next year’s dash plaque winner is selected through a lottery-style drawing.

Some adjustments have been made to the show’s layout due to construction at Sloan Museum in the Flint Cultural Center. Trailer parking will be the same, and the show will continue to be the same, laid-back, DJ-free event that you love. Thank you for your suggestions for ways to improve the show.

Congratulations to our 2020 dash plaque featured vehicle:
