The Futurliner was invited to the 2006 Meadow Brook Concours
d'Elegance. The show is considered to be one of the most prestigious
events of its kind in the world. Approximately 250 automobile owners
are invited to show their cars on the grounds of Oakland University’s
historic Meadow Brook Hall. While the picture above shows some of
the more modern automobiles, they were surely outnumbered by some of
the most outstanding classics in existence today.
This a 1935 Delage. Much of the detail is lost due to the small
photograph but it is just a stunning automobile.
This outstanding automobile came from the Peterson Automotive
Museum. If I got my facts straight, it's a 1926 Rolls Royce
re-bodied in 1934. One of the most distinctive design elements of
the car are the round doors. Notice how the side windows are split
as they roll down.
The Futurliner was placed behind a row of automobiles from the GM
Heritage Museum. It made for a stunning display.
Pictured (on the right) is a lovely reporter/model from a Canadian
television station. Even the dummy on the left took notice as she
pointed out one of the Futurliner displays.

Pictured are our sales table volunteers. The DVD is the most popular
item. It provides a great glimpse into the history of the Futurliner
and the Parade of Progress. It also has some original promotional
footage on it.
