In 2010 the Glenmoor Gathering will recognize not one automobile, but a large group of them—“The Historic Motorcars of Cleveland”—automobiles built in Cleveland, Ohio,
which once rivaled Detroit as a center for automobile manufacturing; you’ll see many examples in 2010.
Among the Cleveland-built automobiles on display will be famous makes such as Peerless, White, Winton and Stearns-Knight as well as memorable makes such as Templar, Chandler and Jordan. Two of the best-known and most popular electric automobiles were built in Cleveland—Rauch & Lang and Baker.
For those with a passion for horsepower and European design the 2010 Gathering will recognize the talents of Italian designer Giotto Bizzarrini by displaying examples of some of his finest automobile designs. Bizzarrini’s 50+ year career included not only design and production of the Bizzarrini sports car but design work on the Iso Rivolta, Iso Grifo and Ferrari 250 GTO.
There’ll also be a special display of Duesenbergs—both open and closed body styles—and the 2010 Gathering will also feature Italian “Super-Bikes,” such as those built by Aprilia, Benelli, Bimota, Ducati, Moto-Guzzi, and MV-Agusta from the 1960's to present.
And, there’ll be the usual great American and European antique and classic automobiles—plus a few surprises—that spectators have come to expect at the annual Gathering.
Serving as honorary chairman of the 2010 Gathering will be Keith Martin, publisher of Sports Car Market, the leading magazine chronicling collector car marketplace values—from brass era automobiles to modern sports cars.
The 2010 poster artwork will feature a unique American Classics: the one-of-a-kind 1932 Peerless Sixteen sedan prototype designed and built by Murphy Coachworks, from the collections of the Crawford Auto-Aviation Museum.
The 2010 poster artist is Ken Dallison of Mississaugua, Ontario. During his 50-year career, he has created elegant images for may blue chip clients. A founder of the Automotive Fine Arts Society, he studied art at Twickenham Art College and began his professional career in London.
During the 2010 concours automotive art by a variety of artists will be displayed and on sale and several automotive authors will be signing their books. The 2010 weekend activities will again include the FedEx Custom Critical Countryside Tour, a restoration seminar by the Crawford Auto-Aviation Museum ( featuring a rare 1913 Austro-Daimler), a car collecting discussion led by Keith Martin of Sports Car Market, cocktail party and Gala Dinner, cooking demonstrations, a Junior Judges’ program and other family activities. A new activity for 2010 will a special “spa experience” for the ladies on Saturday.
Approximately 6,000 people attended the 2009 event, which included invitation-only vehicles from throughout the United States—from as far away as California and Florida.
