Product Overview

St. Ignace hosted its first car show in 1976 as part of the bicentennial celebration. Over the years, the annual gathering has grown into one of the largest collector-vehicle events in the country. This lakeside community overlooking the mighty Mackinac Bridge and historic Mackinac Island boasts a spectacular waterfront---the perfect backdrop for a stunning array of eye-catching vehicles. In the early years, media referred to this show as "dessert." As the numbers of participants and attendees grew, it became known as the "main course." For teenagers growing up in the 1950s it was all new---cruisin', drive-ins, drag strips, the country's intense love affair with the automobile, and the birth of rock `n' roll. Over 34 years, the St. Ignace Car Show has brought hundreds of automotive legends to town, and car-show traffic set crossing records on the Mackinac Bridge that are unlikely to ever be broken. So fire up the hot rod and cruise back to a simpler time all these cars and still no traffic light!

Edward K. Reavie introduced the automotive world to St. Ignace when he founded the famous car show in 1976. A lifelong "gearhead," in St. Ignace Car Culture, Reavie illustrates a town's infatuation with the automobile through vintage photographs from his own collection, as well as through generous contributions from fellow enthusiasts.

The Images of America series celebrates the history of neighborhoods, towns, and cities across the country. Using archival photographs, each title presents the distinctive stories from the past that shape the character of the community today. Arcadia is proud to play a part in the preservation of local heritage, making history available to all.
