    You Donít Need a Pink Cadillac to Ride in this Parade!

    This event is shaping up to be the "Go To" Cadillac event of the year!!

    Our blog has had hits from more than 14 different countries!!
    Here's a little background info:
    Henry M. Leland, inventor of both the Cadillac and Lincoln cars, is a native son of our fair town, Barton, VT. His family had a farm here for many years before they moved to MA. Many decendents are still living in the area.

    The Orleans County Fair Association has a formal "Record Attempt Agreement" with Guinness for an attempt to break the existing record: A total of 102 Cadillac cars participated in a parade at the Cadillac Oldtimer Festival held in Leimuiderbrug, the Netherlands, on 18 August 2002.

    Henry M. Leland was a remarkable man who made many significant contributions to this country, from the invention of the electric barber clippers to engines for airplanes during WW1. It is our hope to honor his memory and bring this record home to the United States, home to Vermont, back to the childhood home of Henry M. Leland, the Cadillac's inventor!

    This record breaking event will be part of our Orleans County Fair held August 17th through the 21st. The Cadillac Parade Record Breaking Event be on Wednesday the 17th, as our fair opener.

    Here's a link to the Newport Daily Express Story:

    The Cars of Yesteryear Club is working with us to conduct a Cadillac Car Show on the fairgrounds, following the parade event.

    If you're a car enthusiast you don't want to miss this history making Cadillac event!

    I'd love to attend this event but the sad part it. It's way to far away from me. Hampton NH to Barton VT thats 3 Hours & 20 Mins one way. Wish It was closer but good luck to everyone =-)

    Well, I was there, 301 miles over 4.5 hours. I saw Cruella there but not her owner. Did anyone else go?

    Thanks to Lorie for everything. Hopefully the owners / driver will get some recognition in the Guinness book. I believe there were about 230 ish cars. All years, all makes all models. It was an outstanding display of American luxury as well as history.

    It was also a clear indication that the Cadillac community is very strong. You just have to give them a good reason to come out.

    I just got my bent rim back and I think I have a wheel bearing issue popping up so I felt uncomfortable driving up there. Plus, it's been slow at work and today was good. I wanted to go and planned to but all those other factors kept me from doing so.

    Any Vs show up??
