| One of the highlighted features of the 2012 Gathering will be steam-powered automobiles. At the end of the 19th century, steam was king—and proven. It powered industrial machinery, ships and railroad locomotives. It was only natural that steam was used to power early automobiles. The most famous of these was the Stanley (shown above) but another well-known steam car was built in Cleveland—the White—and Locomobile began as a steam car.
In all, more than 200 vintage and classic American and European automobiles and motorcycles will be on the show field. There will be a display of Allard automobiles, 'micro cars,' early supercharged cars and 'The Trans Atlantics'—automobiles with European and U. K. coachwork and American engines.
On Friday afternoon, there'll be two seminars. The first will be an automotive design seminar moderated by artist Peter Maier with automotive designers Bill Porter and Larry Turk. It will be followed by 'How to Buy a Collector Car' with Wayne Carini of 'Chasing Classic Cars' and collector car expert Ralph Marano.
Other weekend activities include the Passport Transport Countryside Tour, Classic Motorcars Collector Car Auction, cocktail party and Gala Dinner, cooking demonstrations, a Junior Judges' program and other family activities. During the concours, automotive art by a variety of artists will be on display and for 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, Vipers and Porsches.
