Two very special automotive seminars will be held during the Glenmoor Gathering weekend, both on Friday, Sept. 16.
From 3 – 4 p.m., there’ll be a special presentation on the history of the famed Chrysler Turbine car by Steve Lehto, author of Chrysler Turbine: The Rise and Fall of Detroit’s Coolest Car. The story of the Chrysler Turbine is one of the most interesting chapters in Detroit automotive history. Only 55 of the cars were produced, with bodies by Carrozzeria Ghia of Italy. Today, a handful remain. Mr. Lehto will also be signing copies of his book.
From 4 – 5:30 p.m. there’ll be a seminar on Classic Coachwork by master metal shaper Fay Butler and noted Ohio-based restorer Dale Adams. Fay Butler is dedicated to creating and educating on the subject of compound curve sheet metal parts. Specifically, he and Mr. Adams will discuss the reproduction of metal panels for vintage automobiles. Mr. Butler has been conducting metal-shaping seminars since 1989. This is a rare opportunity. Both seminars will be held at Glenmoor Country Club. Tickets for the seminars are $10 each and can be purchased in advance or at the door.
