I know calmness is no longer an option because just today I got the notice from the freight warehouse in Wilmington, NC, that my brand-new Changli New Energy Mini Electric Car for Adu...

I have a lot of Porsche, BMW and Mercedes Benz sales literature that has to go, I've been instructed. Specifically, I have about 11 pounds of Porsche brochures from the late 1960's to 1990's, 21 pounds of BMW brochures from late 1970's to 1990's and 27 pounds of MB literature from late 1970's to 1990's. The first one to show up in person, takes whatever they like, FREE. If no one takes it in a week, it all goes into the recycle bin. My cell number is 269 217-1532. I live off from Oakland Drive in Kalamazoo.

We may get as many 300 SL's at DeutscheMarques next year or we may not.

Occasionally, tours and groups arrive in remarkable vehicles at the Gilmore Car Museum. Sometimes the cars they drive and park are as good a display as almost all the formal exhibits in the museum. On September 28, 2007, the Gull Wing Group visited the Gilmore Car Museum during their annual convention in Grand Rapids.

We regret to announce that - after a great deal of discussion - your DeutscheMarques board has made the decision to cancel our July 11 show.

We considered later dates offered by the Gilmore Car Museum, but there is too much uncertainty to safely bring together owners and enthusiasts of German cars this year. We anticipated over 400 cars and 2,000 guests this year, and remain America’s largest all-German car show.

So plan to join us the first Saturday after the 4th of July in 2021! We promise a great show!

Meanwhile, stay well and WASH YOUR HANDS!

Since we have been hunkering down here, I've been reviewing my automotive publication holdings and realized that some of it has to go. I have one file box full of late 1960's to mid 1980's BMW and Porsche sales literature. I also have a similar box with about the same time period Porsche literature including 3-4 of the classic 959 posters with model information on the back. Both boxes have multiple copies of some of the literature. Both boxes are heavily weighted toward the latter end of the time period. Here is the deal. I am willing, for a short time, to give away all of this, but only if you take the whole box or both whole boxes. PM me if you are interested. We can arrange a pick up at our house and still maintain recommended social distancing.

This year, Volkswagen is DeutscheMarques featured marque.

While walking through the Cleveland Museum of Natural History earlier this week, Redditor muppaphone spotted a toy VW Bug hidden amongst a collection of taxidermied beetles. Most likely the joke of a good-humored curator, commenters suggest museums frequently hide objects like this for observant pat

Our Story

On the first Saturday following the 4th of July, a large group of German cars, owners, and enthusiasts gather at the Gilmore Car Museum for the largest all-German Car show in the United States. Bring your friends and family (including pets)! This car show features all of your favorite German marques and everything from daily drivers to weekend treasures - including Audi, BMW, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, and Volkswagen. Our event is presented by Orrin B. Hayes Mercedes-Benz, Sharpe BMW, Porsche Grand Rapids (Fox Motors).

The annual event attracts hundreds of vehicles and nearly 2,000 visitors. In 2019, 380 gleaming German cars worth well over ten-million dollars were on display at the Gilmore Car Museum. The GCM drove a stunning recreation of an 1886 Benz Patent Motorwagen around the show grounds. In addition to all the cars, guests enjoyed a strolling oom-pah band, German food and German beverages.

Unfortunately due to the global pandemic, the 2020 show was not held. We look forward to an even bigger and better show on July 10, 2021. Plan to join us!

All proceeds benefit the Gilmore Car Museum, and include general admission to all museum exhibits.
