As in the years past Memory Lane exhibit was displayed at the Miami International Auto Show in the Miami Beach Convention Center. This display consisted of a great collection of 33 vehicles worthy of the great Memory Lane tradition of displaying fine examples of automotive history. The display originally was to have 50 automobiles but some last minute changes by the venue forced us to cut the display down in size. With an added flare the cars displayed ranged from 1928 through 1998 including American and European cars. Thank you to all the club members who volunteered to displayed their cars.
Every car owner volunteered and contributed to the event, probably one of the best group of volunteers in the past several years. A very special THANK YOU to Stephen and Kathy Greenblatt who always spend countless hours all week long at the show doing everything they can.

It was an amazing day, weather was excellent, a little warm but great. The cars showed up everything from 1920 to 1998 was on display on Biltmore Way. The great setting and awesome example of automobiles drew the crowds over.
Besides having a record setting 100 cars at the show there was probably the most pedestrian spectators to ever attend the show. The quality of cars and varied years gave everyone attending something they cherish from their youth and other examples of automotive history to admire.
The most amazing thing was that 20% of the show field was comprised of European Sports cars, something which is growing every year, forcing us to expand the classes for next year, yes we are already thinking on how to improve on this year’s event for next year.
Thank you to all the volunteers that made this happen, the judges and especially to all the amazing car enthusiast that brought their amazing automobiles out to the show. See you in 2024!

The November 2022 Deering Estate Vintage Auto Show could not have been a better experience! Everything went perfectly as the cars came to line up to enter; and thanks to Jean Hawa’s meticulous preparation, it was as easy as 1,2 & 3! Then with assistance from Ira Shapiro and Bob Squier, checking the cars in and getting them on the grounds was probably one of the easiest car shows to have been a part of.
The weather was perfect a nice high 80’s but with a beautiful nice summer wind (in the fall) coming in from the bay. With over 35 cars on the lawn at the Deering Estate and a slew of spectators streaming through for five hours, it was a special day. We had entries from 1911 through 1965 showcasing a spectacular array of vintage classic automobiles, including vintage International Harvester vehicles.
