2016 Alden Car Show
The 17th annual Alden Classic
Sports Car Show will be August 13th and 14th, 2016. Sponsored by the
Twin Bay British Car Club, the show features sports cars from all over
the world - no hot rods, motorcycles, trucks, or replicas. Just sports
cars. Vehicles from Germany, France, Great Britain, Italy, and Japan
and the U.S.A. have all attended in the past. We feature over 100
entries yearly in the quaint Antrim County resort village of Alden,
Michigan, 25 miles northwest of Traverse City, Michigan. The village of
Alden offers shopping and dining with a wonderful, supportive group of
merchants who provide door prizes to lucky entrants. Lodging is
complimented in the region with wineries, tasting rooms, casinos,
breweries and hundreds of miles of great touring roads. A tour of the
Torch Lake area is offered on Saturday with a dinner following. The
tour highlights the region's lakes, rivers, rolling hills and scenery
that will not be soon forgotten. Valve cover racing is also part of our
unique and friendly show, with trophies being awarded to the fastest
valve cover racer. Clubs from throughout the Midwest offer challenges
each year to the racers, there is no fee to enter this contest. Each
year we choose a special marque for a featured vehicle. The iconic
Porsche has been chosen as the featured marque in 2016. A special area
for the chosen marque places the vehicle front and center for the
enjoyment of all who attend. Awards are presented on Sunday in several
categories to entrants in all classes. Snow times will be 9 a.m. to 4
p.m., with awards presented at 3 p.m.
Please join us in Alden on August 13th and 14th, 2016.
