This year the Memory Lane exhibit at the Miami International Auto Show was back in an old familiar setting: Hall D at the Miami Beach Convention Center where the first Memory Lane show was displayed. This year we have a great collection worthy of the tradition, including a 1935 SS 1, the predecessor of the Jaguar, a 1959 Jaguar Mark IX, a 1980 Pontiac Turbo Trans Am, a 1931 Ford Model A Phaeton, and the newest member of the antique community, a 1992 Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1. Take a look at all of them. Thank you to all the members who displayed their cars.
To our volunteers, thank you for your time spent watching over our members cars during the show, and a special thank you to Ken Hilton for being there every day as our security supervisor.
