Our Local Antique Car Club

by Nancy DeWitt


Last night we were pleased to host a meeting of the Vernon L. Nash Antique Car Club. There were some very cool cars in our parking lot - can anyone identify them for me?

Approximately 75 people attended the meeting, which involved a lot of discussion about the club's upcoming car show at the Carlson Center May 29-30. That is a show you definitely don't want to miss! The meeting also covered our Midnight Sun Cruise-In set for June 18-20, as the club is organizing the Saturday car show and "Tour de Fairbanks" cruise. Many thanks to the car club for their support! I am constantly amazed at how much activity this club packs into our short summer season.

Afterward the meeting, club members got a good look at the new museum layout. Willy and his many helpers did a huge re-set of the cars this week, so if you've been here before you'll notice a lot of changes! Please note that starting Sunday our entrance shifts to the north side of the building.

Also on Sunday we shift to our summer hours: Monday - Thursday 11 am - 10 pm, Friday & Saturday 11 am - 6 pm. We're offering a cool new deal this summer - for only $15 you can get a pass to both our museum and the University of Alaska Museum of the North. Perfect for visiting relatives!

If you'd like more information about the Vernon L. Nash Antique Car Club, drop us a note or stop by the desk in the museum.
