Greenfield Village Motor Muster - 2018 Early Ford V-8 Club Grand National

Special Invite Has Been Awarded - June 16 & 17, 2018

Oct 27, 2017
From the 2018 Grand National Committee

The MOTOR MUSTER is an annual car show held at historic Greenfield Village each June.  Your Grand National Committee, in partnering with theHenryFord for 2018, specifically scheduled the GNM to coincide with the Motor muster so that GNM attendees could take advantage of attending both meets while in town.

The theme of this coming year’s event is “Iconic Power Plants” and the V-8 Ford will be a featured vehicle of the Muster.  Participating Early Ford V-8 Club members will be honorary guests of the Village.   To that end, any and all entry fees, etc, etc are being waived for us and each entry will be afforded four (4) weekend passes to the entire Henry Ford/Greenfield Village facility.  Furthermore, eligible entrants (defined as Rouge, Concourse and Touring Division vehicles) will be spared the formal registration process and will register and be assured a spot in the show by utilizing a special section of our GN Meet Registration Form.  Names, hometown, and a description of each vehicle entered will be supplied by us to the Village to facilitate credentials and also serve as the basis for the narrated portion of the "Pass in Review" of our vehicles that will be conducted each day.

For those of you not familiar with the Motor muster or who have heard of it but never attended, please take a minute and watch this video:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ecEk4Cy7hn0 

This event is arguably the premier show of its kind in the Country and our featured status in 2018 a truly unique, once in a lifetime opportunity that many of our GNM entrants can experience.....for free!   Please also note that the Motor Muster is normally limited to 1933-1976 vehicles.  To facilitate complete acceptance of our Club vehicles as well to provide complete coverage of the Early Ford V-8 Era, restrictions on 1932 Fords will be waived for this one time only event.
