| Allard automobiles will be one of the featured marques at the 2012 Glenmoor Gathering. More than 20 Allard automobiles are expected to be on display during the Glenmoor Gathering weekend. Allards featured lightweight bodies built in England but were usually fitted with big American engines, resulting in a terrific power to weight ratio. Shown above at last year's Glenmoor Gathering is an award-winning 1950 Allard J2 roadster owned by David K. Hans of Barrington, Illinois, that was displayed in 2011.
In all, more than 200 vintage and classic American and European automobiles and motorcyles will be on the show field. The motorcycle class will feature classic 1928-48 American motorcycles. There will also be a display of 'micro' cars, steam-powered cars, early supercharged cars and Tucker automobiles plus a unique class— 'The Trans Atlantics'—automobiles with European and U. K. coachwork with American engines, such as the Allard.
The 2012 weekend activities will include the Passport Transport Countryside Tour, cocktail party and Gala Dinner, cooking demonstrations, a Junior Judges' program and other family activities. Among the weekend highlights will be automotive seminars. An automotive design seminar will be hosted by artist Peter Maier while Wayne Carrini of 'Chasing Classic Cars' and noted collector Ralph Marano will team up to discuss how to buy a collector car. During the 2012 concours automotive art by a variety of artists will be displayed and on sale. Several automotive authors will also be in attendance to sell and autograph their books.
On Sunday, there will again be a separate, special display on the club's front lawn of 'World Class Performance Cars,' including Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Porsches. The popular display of hand-built scale model automobiles and engines will return in 2012.
