The 45th Sloan Museum Auto Fair (SMAF) is almost here! This annual fundraising event will take place June 24-25, 2017. The show is made possible because of people like you who attend and care about vehicles and Flint history. More than ever before, we need your support this year. Over the last 44 years, Sloan Museum Auto Fair has contributed more than $250,000 for the acquisition, restoration, and maintenance of Sloan Museum’s important collection of vehicles and the automobile archives that are significant to Flint. The only way this was possible is through your continued support of vehicle registrations, volunteering, admission tickets, and all levels of sponsorships. As Sloan Museum begins to dream of a new facility, it’s important to have your support of the show to keep our automobile history at the forefront of the displays. Please send in your vehicle registration or become a sponsor today.

During the Auto Fair, Sloan Museum and Buick Gallery will be open to all participants and spectators. It's a great opportunity to enjoy rare collectable cars, take pictures, videos, and learn about Flint's historic role in the automotive industry. Car enthusiasts of all ages, vendors, and sponsors will want to be a part of this annual celebration of automobiles! All proceeds from the show go to restoring, acquiring and maintenance for the Sloan Museum auto collection and archives.

The newest addition to Sloan Museum’s automotive collection will be on display during Auto Fair at Buick Gallery. On October 12, 2016, the museum picked up a 1963 Chevrolet Corvette, bringing the total number of vehicles in the automotive collection to 103. 1963 marked the first major redesign of “America’s Sports Car” and the new Corvette (assembled in St. Louis) was smaller, lower, lighter, and more aggressive, featuring a Flint-built 340 horsepower, 327 cid V-8 and a 4-speed transmission. 1963 also marked the first year a Corvette coupe was available, and the only year for the “split rear window” that has become the Stingray’s hallmark.

Awards for 2017 will include Best GM-original, Best GM-modified, Best Ford-original, Best Ford-modified, Best Mopar-original, Best Mopar-modified, Best RatRod, Best Truck, Best Lowrider, Best Foreign, Best Orphan, Best Youth-Owned, Best Woman-Owned, Best Paint, Best Interior, Best Engine, Best Millennium (2000 or newer), 3 Military Awards, and the Top 25. In addition, there will be awards for One Fine Ride (Judges’ Choice), the Best of Show Original-Restored, the Best of Show Original, the Best of Show-Modified, and the Executive Director’s award for Best of Show. Only judged vehicles are eligible for awards.

Our special displays are a great attraction. Sloan Museum Auto Fair is proud to celebrate the 50th anniversaries of the Camaro, Firebird, and Cougar. A timeline display will showcase preserved and restored Camaros and Firebirds throughout the years. Applewood Estate will also host a display called All American Classics. Finally, we will showcase the very popular Police Car display again this year.
