Oakbrook Center to present Father’s Day car show

Oakbrook Center will host the 46th Annual Father’s Day Classic Car Show from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. June 15. More than 75,000 visitors are expected for this one-day-only event where more than 100 antique, classic, vintage and specialty automobiles will be on display throughout the center’s newly designed spaces. Admission is free.

Presented by the Greater Illinois Region of the Classic Car Club of America in partnership with Oakbrook Center, the Father’s Day Classic Car Show is one of the largest open-air shows of its kind in the Midwest. The show features rare and one-of-a-kind vehicles dating back to the early 1900s and draws visitors from all over the world.

“The Father’s Day Classic Car Show is a family-friendly tradition for Chicago area residents and tourists alike,” said Suzanne Cook-Beres, senior marketing manager for Oakbrook Center. “For more than four decades, car lovers and families have flocked to Oakbrook Center to celebrate the innovation and history behind these iconic automobiles.”

Highlights include: 1930 Packard 740 Custom; 1932 Buick 96 C; 1947 Cadillac 6267; 1955 Chevrolet 2 Dr. Post 150; 1965 Shelby GT 350; 1966 Ford Mustang; and 1995 Ferrari F512M.

Visitors will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite vehicles in the Wheels of Choice contest and be entered to win a Father’s Day prize package valued at more than $1,000 from retailers at Oakbrook Center. Voting ballots, available at two information booths located near Crate & Barrel and BOSS Hugo Boss, will be collected at the end of the show and tabulated to determine the people’s Wheels of Choice winner. The vehicle that receives the most votes will be presented with a special commemorative plaque.
