If you’re going to be anywhere around beautiful Carmel, Indiana this Saturday, stop in and check out the big classic car show called “Carmel Artomobilia,” any time between noon and 6:00 pm. Held in the new Carmel Arts & Design District of downtown Carmel, this popular greater Indianapolis event is free to the public. Car shows are big all over the country, but enormous throughout the Midwest, and a favorite thing to do in Indianapolis and its environs.
Over 150 classic car owners have registered to display their automobiles. Some of the models you will see this time around are:
- Brush Runabout from 1905 (the oldest vehicle in the show)
- De Tomasco Pantera
- Aston Martin
- Dodge Charger from 1966
- Corvette from 1966
- Mustang GT from 1966
Also on display will be a replica of the first car ever to win the famous Indianapolis 500-Mile Race, way back in 1911: the Marmon Wasp.
This event in Carmel, Indiana, is built upon the theme of celebrating the Hudson’s 100th anniversary. Many different Hudson classic cars will be displayed in the Carmel Artomobilia Car Show.
Of added interest to the Indianapolis art community is the “artist’s village” that will be presented in the parking lot for the show. Indianapolis art and artists from other cities in Indiana who make art with automobile-related themes will have the opportunity to exhibit, and the public can see their work in prominent displays. The local Art and Soul Gallery will have a professional artist on hand to create a painting of the Marmon Wasp during the event.
A piece called “Full Throttle Education,” by Indianapolis artist Kim Watanabee, will be debuted at the Carmel Artomobilia Car Show. The work is of the Team Sycamore racing dragster for the Indiana State University. The ISU Team Sycamore dragster itself, as well as the ISU Apex Formula BMW, will be on display for the public’s viewing pleasure.
