BLOOMINGTON — The McLean County Antique Auto Club and David Davis Foundation will host the 17th annual Antique Auto Exhibition at Clover Lawn — marking its 50th year as an organization — on Aug. 3 at the mansion grounds.

The non-judged event, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., will feature cars, trucks, motorcycles and scooters produced before 1988. The Radio Flyer Car from Clinton and a “rescued” Mister Softee ice cream truck will be at this year’s event.

Registration begins at 9 a.m. with the Parade of Progress at 2 p.m. The car club with the most vehicles present will receive the Club Challenge.

There is no registration fee. Donations to the mansion will be accepted at the gate. Musical entertainment and refreshments are part of the event.

In commemoration of the auto club’s 50th anniversary, several club members will leave Sept. 15 for a 22-day trip along Route 66. Information will be available at the auto show.
