State Rep. John Roth recently celebrated the signing of his bill to give historic car enthusiasts more time to drive their vehicles. The plan extends the time vehicles with historic plates can be driven on public roads from one month to three.

“Michigan was built on automobiles. It only makes sense that we should honor that history by giving folks more time to drive their historic vehicles,” said Roth, R-Interlochen. “Many cars and trucks with historic plates were built here in Michigan. People put a lot of time and money into purchasing and maintaining these automobiles. Anyone with that much commitment to historic vehicles should have all summer to show them off.”

Over Memorial Day weekend, Roth attended the Northport Car Show, Leelanau County’s longest-running auto show.

“This is going to be a great summer for those of us who love old automobiles,” Roth said. “I love going to car shows. But it’s even more fun when I get to tell a crowd full of people that they have even more time to drive their antique vehicles.”

The following is a list of Michigan-based car shows this summer:

June 22 – 50th annual REO Club of America in Ypsilanti

June 27 through July 1 – St. Ignace Car Show weekend in St. Ignace

June 30 – National Cherry Festival Car Show in Traverse City

July 7 – Gilmore Car Museum Auto Muster in Hickory Corners

July 12 – Villa at the Bay in Petoskey

July 27 – Arcadia Daze Car Show in Arcadia

August 10 through 11 – Alden Classic Sports Car Show in Alden
