In late April 2013, the Ypsilanti Automotive Heritage Museum received a call from an Antiques Roadshow representative. Antiques Roadshow was preparing for a visit to Detroit and were looking for places to visit around Detroit.
They requested information about Ypsilanti and the contents of the Ypsilanti Car Museum. The museum learned that they would like to visit and received a request to have an old Hudson available for their use.
The Antiques Roadshow crew arrived on May 30th. Roadshow star Mark Walberg took a drive in a vintage Hudson around Riverside Park where they recorded from both the inside and outside the car. Mark next cruised in the Hudson through Depot Town and down East Cross Street. Mark and the Roadshow toy expert Noel Barrett focused on model cars on display in the Ypsilanti Car Museum.
Their Ypsilanti visit will air on Monday, February 3, 2014 during the second hour. In addition to visiting Ypsilanti, the Roadshow visited the Motown Museum and Cranbrook Academy while they were in Detroit.
