Mike McIntosh Memorial Car & Truck Show

A September tradition at NMC’s Automotive Service Technology Building on Aero Park Drive, the show is named for the late NMC Automotive instructor Mike McIntosh, who retired in 2004 after 34 years of service. McIntosh organized the first car show for the Automotive Program in 2004.

Owners are invited to enter their classic cars, 4X4s, dragsters, sports cars, modified late models, motorcycles and more! Trophies are awarded for best of show in each class.

There is a $15 entry fee per vehicle. Admission is FREE to all spectators!

The public is invited for food, music, a silent auction — including program vehicles — and door prizes for entrants. All proceeds benefit NMC’s Automotive Program. Spectators are encouraged to see the student projects and vehicles displayed in the Automotive Technology facility.

For more information about the show, please call Wayne Moody at (231) 995-1316 or e-mail
