Gleaming paint, the curve of chrome and head-turning good looks will be on display June 11 and 12, 2016 at History Road: The Ultimate Car Show weekend.

History Road is a spectacular display of more than 650 cars, trucks and motorcycles spanning more than a century of automotive history. The lineup features rare vehicles from Reynolds-Alberta Museum's collection and those of enthusiasts from across Alberta and western Canada. From open-bodied roadsters to 1960's muscle cars; from tiller handle steering to electronic fuel injection and everything in between.

In addition to the display, the museum’s 1951 Ford Custom Country Squire, 1951 Studebaker Champion Deluxe 2 Door Sedan, 1953 Ford Crestline Sunliner Convertible, and 1928 Ford Model A Pickup and more, will be fired up and driven in the “Parade Through the Century” starting at noon each day.

AMA Insurance will be on site, so visit their booth to learn how they help protect the things you care about most. AMA is proud to announce that they have recently partnered with Hagerty Classic Car Insurance, to offer vintage vehicle insurance to Albertans. AMA Insurance is part of Alberta’s history, providing affordable insurance for over 50 years.

At the end of the day Saturday, show participants and museum visitors can enjoy a barbecue in the museum's Cruisers Café.
