If your car could talk, what stories would it tell?
Collector Car Live, hosted by MotorTrend stars Mike Brewer, of Wheeler Dealers, and Wayne Carini, of Chasing Classic Cars, comes to The Big E’s Court of Honor Stage, sponsored by MattressFirm, Sunday, Sept. 22 at 12pm.
The event, free with Fair admission, celebrates automotive history by sharing the unique recounts of car collectors and the untold stories behind the rare vehicles. Collector Car Live features an elite, hand-selected lineup of rare vehicles dating from the Brass Era to today’s exotics. Show hosts and automotive experts, Brewer and Carini, will uncover the lesser known histories behind the vehicles, and give the car owner a chance to step into the spotlight.
The day kicks off at 9am with the Parade of Cars. The featured show vehicles will travel from The Big E Arena, sponsored by MGM Springfield, down the Avenue of States to Hampden Avenue and will park at the new show site at the Court of Honor – the heart of the fairgrounds. Following the show, audience members have an opportunity to get the 2019 Collector Car Live commemorative poster and meet hosts for photos and autographs.
The Big E’s specialty automotive attractions also include expanded programming on the Avenue of States with the Avenue Car Show Series, select dates, 9am-4pm. Following the conclusion of each show, fairgoers will have the opportunity to catch some of the vehicles in motion in The Big E Daily Parade at 5pm. DJ Bruce Marshall, of The Valley’s Classic Hits 97.7FM and 1260AM, will be onsite at each event spinning hits of the 50s, 60s and 70s.
