This Lincoln Cabriolet by Dietrich carried 1925 license plates, stylish wire wheels and landau bars. Edsel no doubt approved of the setting with two socialites granting feminine approval to the car’s grace and dignity befitting their class.

The Annual Lincoln Homecoming will be held August 7 through 11 at the Lincoln Motor Car Heritage Museum in Hickory Corners, Michigan. Hosting the Homecoming will be the Lincoln-Zephyr Owners Club.

“This year’s Homecoming will feature a combination of new and old favorite events,” said Jim Blanchard, LZOC president and LMCF president, who is working with LMCF Chairman Paul Temple and the 2024 Homecoming committee on the annual Homecoming plans.

Something new is a trip to the R. E. Olds Transportation Museum in nearby Lansing on Thursday; it will be a charter bus trip with a luncheon included. Seating is limited so early sign-up is encouraged. The Olds Museum, predictably, contains many early automobiles including a variety of Oldsmobile and REO automobiles. Supper will be “on your own” that evening.

Friday’s activities will include a tour of the Kellogg Bird Sanctuary, lunch and a tour of the historic W. K. Kellogg Manor House on Gull Lake. Seating is limited so early sign-up is recommended. The Kellogg tours will be followed by a private tour of the Bill Parfet automobile collection. That evening, there’ll be a barbecue dinner adjacent to the Lincoln Motor Car Heritage Museum.
