Preserving the World's Professional Car History™ since 1989.

 
NORTHLAND PAST EVENTS EXHIBIT

From the very first meet in 1989 to the most current meets, here is a sampling of photographs our group has been involved in.  Regardless of whether we're in the snow of Minnesota at a Chapter function or the incredible heat of Lebanon, Missouri at an International Meet, we always have a great time visiting, making new friends, renewing old acquaintances, and -- of course! -- looking over the professional cars.
