The Edison & Ford Winter Estates continue the celebration of Thomas Edison’s birthday by hosting the Estates Antique Car Show on Saturday, February 7, from 10 AM to 2 PM.  The show is included in the price of admission to the Estates, or a separate ticket of $5 may be purchased to attend the car show that is staged at Henry Ford’s Winter Estate, The Mangoes.  Estates members are FREE.

Local V-8 Car Clubs and other classic car enthusiasts will showcase their cars on the Ford lawn, in a fitting tribute to the legacy of Henry Ford, pioneer of the automobile industry and a winter resident of Fort Myers.  Dozens of cars will be on display and their owners will be on hand to visit with guests and answer questions.

In addition to the car show, other special programs during the day include:

  • Authors John Sheppard, One Man’s Family in Early Fort Myers and Tom Smoot, Edisons of Fort Myers:  Discoveries of the Heart will be available to sign books in the Ford Cottage Shoppe from 11 AM – 1 PM 
  • A children’s story reading with Mr. & Mrs. Edison at 11 AM
  • Botanical art project at 11:30 AM
  • “Model T Tour and Lecture” with Estates staff and car owners at 11 AM and 1 PM
