Auto Historica XI, the most elite exhibition of rare and unusual automobiles and other motorized vehicles in the Midwest, will be held Saturday, July 23, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., on the grounds of the Highland Park Historical Society, 326 Central Avenue, Highland Park, IL.

All proceeds benefit the Highland Park Historical Society. This invitation-only event is considered to be one of the finest automotive exhibitions in the United States, thus the nickname “Little Pebble Beach”. Auto Historica XI invites a select group of collectors to participate with vehicles that are specially chosen each year to create a themed exhibition.

This year’s theme is Woodies, classic American wood-bodied station wagons from the 30s, 40s, and 50s, as well as unique European wooden skiff-bodied touring cars. Approximately 50 cars will be on display, including such rarities as a supercharged Duesenberg, an Allard J2, and a Bugatti Atlantic Coupé. A $5 donation is suggested. Children under 12 are free.
