 FORT MYERS, Fla. (January 4, 2018) -- On February 3, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Edison & Ford Winter Estates will host its annual Antique Car Exhibition featuring antique Ford models. Each year, classic car owners and club members exhibit more than 100 cars on the Ford estate lawn, along the Caloosahatchee River as a tribute to Henry Ford, the pioneer of the automobile industry. 
Along with the exhibition, there will be music and visitors can tour the gardens, historic homes, museum and laboratory. This family event is free for Edison Ford members and $25 for future members, which includes a self-guided tour of the entire site. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the restoration of the antique car collection at Edison Ford. 

Registrations are being accepted for Ford models 1980 and older. To register a car, contact Leeanne Criswell at lcriswell@edisonfordwinterestates.org or 239-334-7419. The deadline for pre-registration is January 26. Pre-registration is $20 for one car and $10 for each additional car.
