This very special event is exclusively for original or authentically restored vehicles produced in 1974 or earlier. No visual modifications are allowed, including wheels and hubcaps. 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.

• Driver and one passenger will receive free admission to Sloan Museum of Discovery and Flint Institute of Arts.
