I hang out as car shows end so I can see the cars actually being driven, if only to a trailer in the parking lot. The 1904 Sunset and the 1908 Renault in this video, though, are not trailer queens. They were driven to the 2012 Orphan Car Show in Ypsilanti, and since the event is one of the last big car events in Michigan in the fall, the gentlemen driving the Sunset, a car made in San Francisco before the 1906 earthquake, and the ladies driving the Renault, with it’s distinctive nose and its radiator sitting behind the engine, were wearing period clothing suitable for the crispy weather. Both cars appear to be unrestored survivors, or if they were restored, that was a long, long time ago. Also in this video is a restored 1911 Overland, and in the background you can see a Studebaker Champion, an Amphicar, a MGB, a Citroen 2CV, and I think a blue MGA. Yes, you might say that the Orphan Car Show attracts an eclectic variety of cars.
