Mark your calendars for July 25, 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. to see the fabulous GM Futurliner that will be the special guest at the Cedar Springs Summer Car Show, located in Morely Park, 60 Cedar St., Cedar Springs MI (one block south of 17 Mile and Northland Dr.)

This is Futurliner No. 10-refurbished to its original condition by more than 30 volunteers over a seven year period under the direction of Don Mayton of Beaverdam, Michigan. Only eight other Futurliners exist, five of which are in total disrepair.

Sharon Jett, Director of the Cedar Springs Museum procured the Futurliner for the car show. “This is a huge coup to get the Futurliner to come. It took about two months of negotiating a price before they said yes,” Jett said.

 

Jett, along with D. White, a fellow museum member, went out into the community to obtain over 25 local business sponsorships. “I would like to personally thank everyone who financially helped so generously with this project,” White said.
