Police and Agency cars needed for 2016 EyesOn Design Automotive Exhibition

Recommended Posts

The 29th annual EyesOn Design show will be held at the Edsel and Eleanor Ford House in Grosse Pointe Shores, MI on June 19, 2016 (Father's Day).

 

The 2016 show theme is "Powered by Design".

 

One of the vehicle display categories will feature performance modified OEM vehicles that were used by Police and/or other agencies.

We are particularly interested in featuring early and unusual examples, but the category will also include modern vehicles.

 

If you own, or know of, any vehicles that would fit this category, please respond in this topic or send me a private message.

You can also use the online submission form to provide your vehicle and contact information: http://www.eyesondesign.org/participate/

 

Thank you!

Assistant Chairman

Vehicle Selection Committee

 

 

About EyesOn Design:

 

The show is an annual fund-raiser for the Detroit Institute of Ophthalmology (DIO), which provides support to the blind and visually impaired of southeast Michigan.

EyesOn Design was founded in 1987 with the support of design heads of GM, Ford, and Chrysler as an automotive exhibition judged exclusively by automotive designers.

Exhibit vehicles are chosen based on the year’s theme by invitation only. Between 200 and 300 vehicles are at the show on Father’s Day.

More details about the show and the DIO are shown below.

I would suggest contacting Bruce Biancalana at cadambrus2@yahoo.com.  Bruce lives near Rockford, Illinois and has a collection of 60s and 70s era Chicago Police Department cars.  Bruce could also put you in touch with friends of his who have even more police cars.  Among them is Dave Weaver, who I'm sure Bruce could put you in touch with.  Dave has a superb Chicago Fire Department chief's car from the mid 1970s.
