POWERHOUSE WEEKEND OF AUTOMOBILE ROYALTY – EyesOn Design and Lingenfelter Collection

Brighton, Mich.- The 29th annual EyesOn Design fundraiser will take place Father’s Day weekend, June 17 – 19, and will showcase automobile royalty: from 1930s classics to the muscle cars of the 1960s; and rare exotic brands to vintage trailers. This year an exclusive open house at the Lingenfelter Collection will be part of the festivities.

“Powered by Design” is the theme of EyesOn Design 2016 which will feature a record setting 360 vehicles from the world’s top collectors. The exhibition is open to the public for browsing and individual vehicles will be judged by experts in several design categories. Special collections include:

· Arsenal of Democracy: A Tribute to Military Vehicles: 1941 – 1991
· Pure Michigan: Made in Kalamazoo
· Collectors’ Circle: The Best from Collectors and Restorers
· Early American Motorcycles: 1900 – 1941
· On the Road Again: Vintage Camping Rigs and Trailers 1910 – 1970

“With its emphasis on automotive design, past, present and future, EyesOn Design is the only show of its kind in the world,” said Kathy Lightbody, EyesOn Design Chairman. “Unlike other shows where cars are judged on restoration and/or authenticity, the exterior of each vehicle at EyesOn Design is judged using professional design criteria: emotional appeal, execution, artistic excellence, and design character and continuity. It is such a treat to see cars of this caliber showcased at one event.”
Two of the extraordinary cars on exhibit will be a 1953 Supercharged Chevrolet Corvette and Test Mule 800HP 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 from the Lingenfelter Collection.
“We are proud to be a part of such a renowned event,” said Ken Lingenfelter, owner Lingenfelter Performance Engineering. “This show has always been one of the highlights of our year and we are very pleased to bring additional attention to the exhibition and increase donations to the Detroit Institute of Ophthalmology by opening the doors to our collection.”
Although the main car show will open from 10:00 am to 4:30 pm on Sunday, June 19, enthusiasts can begin their weekend by attending any or all of the events listed below. Proceeds from the weekend’s activities will benefit the Henry Ford Health System’s Detroit Institute of Ophthalmology (DIO).
