The story from The Henry Ford:

Kick summer into high gear this Father’s Day weekend in Greenfield Village. Motor Muster, one of the country’s most important historic vehicle shows, transports you to the golden eras of car culture.

Cruise through an unparalleled collection of historic vehicles for a rare opportunity to step inside immersive vignettes from five of the American auto revolution’s most formative decades. From the lean Depression-era ‘30s and the American home front during World War II to the futuristic ‘50s, revolutionary ‘60s and bicentennial ‘70s, get a unique perspective on American culture through the lens of what we drove. From luxury vehicles to gritty muscle cars, every automobile has been carefully chosen to guide you through a unique story of American drive.

Plan to stay late on Saturday night for G.I. Jive: A Big Band Swing Show, a raucous ride through a 1940s USO show featuring dancing and live music.

All weekend long, mingle with hundreds of car owners ready to show off the talent that goes into preserving these mechanical marvels. Listen in as experts share the history of auto design at pass-in-review parades and special presentations. Consider the distance we’ve traveled, and discover how far you can take it forward.

NEW in 2019: Fabulous Fins
Like poodle skirts and sock hops, few things symbolize the 1950s so perfectly as tailfins, and no one championed tailfins like Chrysler’s Virgil Exner, who took them to new heights on late-’50s “Forward Look” cars. Though these fabulous fins peaked by the end of the decade, they continue to stir up excitement for a space age America where the sky was the limit.
