This Saturday!

News 950AM WWJ was there yesterday, and here is their report on this weekend's events.

A Classic Car Show Like No Other « CBS Detroit

Written by Jeff Gilbert
GROSSE POINTE SHORES (WWJ) It’s a unique Fathers Day weekend tradition for car lovers, the annual Eyes on Design car show.

More than 200 unique vehicles will be arranged on the lawn at the Edsel and Eleanor Ford House in Gross Pointe Shores on Sunday June 19th. But the car show is part of a weekend of interesting events, which are listed below.

This is the 24th Eyes on Design, which is a fund raiser for the Detroit Institute of Ophthalmology.

Video: Some of the vehicles to be shown at Eyes on Design.

This year’s theme is “Designing for the Future.”

“All cars at one time or another were future designs,” says Frank Valdez, who’s chairman of this year’s show. “We have a class that shows a 56 Chevy, to 57, when they went to the fins.”

There are always unique exhibits.

“The three Lincolns that were designed by Edsel Ford for William Clay Ford, Benson Ford and Edsel Ford are all going to be returning to their ancestral home for the first time,” said Dr. Phillip Hessburg, one of the founders of the show.

Walter de’Silva, the head of Volkswagen Group Design will be honored with the Eyes on Design Lifetime Achievement Award.

On Saturday evening, car lover Ken Lingenfelter will open his private collection to the public for the first time.

“It’s a collection of just cars I like, cars I’ve enjoyed and wanted to own over the years,” says Lingenfelter, who has 130 cars in his collection. “It turns out to be about thirty per cent muscle cars and thirty per cent exotic cars.”

The weekend features a number of events:

Organizers of Eyes on Design relish their distinction as a unique type of car show.

“We were the first to show motorcycles,” said Dr. Hessburg. “We were the first to show a lot of different categories. We were the first to have “Stock to Rock,” and we’ll do that again this year, with a stock vehicle and it’s modified into a rock vehicle.”
