Calling all German car owners and enthusiasts. Please join us on Saturday July 12, 2014 for the third annual DeutscheMarques German Car Show at the Gilmore Car Museum in Hickory Corners, Michigan. We almost had 200 cars on the show field last year and need your help to hit the mark in 2014!

All German cars are invited, including everything from daily drivers to weekend treasures. Participants showing a German car will pay only $8, discounted from the $12 regular admission fee to the Gilmore Car Museum, of the nation's finest automotive venues, which was recently expanded. The car show is paid for by our exclusive marque sponsors, Delta Imports Porsche in Grand Rapids and Orrin B. Hayes Mercedes-Benz in Kalamazoo.

Not only will DeutscheMarques show entrants enjoy a wonderful event, but may also tour the Gilmore Museum's many barns, which are full of antique, classic and exotic cars on display. Click here to visit the Gilmore Car Museum website

Car clubs are very welcome and may park together. DeutscheMarques Auto Group was founded by Peter Hamlett, leading a team of local German car club members. We're open to full participation by car clubs and welcome their suggestions. They are free to use the DeutscheMarques show as an opportunity to recruit members for their German car club and promote their events.
