Sloan Auto Fair

Sloan Museum celebrated their 41st annual Sloan Museum Auto Fair on June 22 and 23 at the Cultural Center. An estimated 5,000 people and 800 cars along with several food vendors covered the Cultural Center grounds over the weekend. 2013 also marks the 60th anniversary of the Chevrolet Corvette, so many local classic car owners brought out several different models of Corvettes in recognition of the anniversary.

Cathy Gentry serves as Marketing Director at Sloan Museum. She told My City Magazine that the Sloan Museum Auto Fair is “one of the longest running car shows in the state and definitely the longest running in Genesee County.” Gentry was pleased with how well things went over the weekend. “I think it was successful,” she said. “We had a great turnout and beautiful weather. You can’t ask for anything more.”

Forty-one annual celebrations naturally makes Sloan Museum Auto Fair one of the city’s many longstanding attractions, thus it serves as yet another “thing to do” in the ever lively Flint, MI. Mehdi Massoudi, a classic car enthusiast, came to Flint for the first time to attend the Auto Fair. He said that he enjoyed seeing the automobiles restored and upgraded with such loving care. “It was great to see the craftsmanship that the owners put into restoring their vehicles. It made me nostalgic for the early days of motor vehicle production” he said. Mehdi also stated that he was delighted to experience Flint in such a safe, positive way: “My family and I enjoyed our time at this great event!”
