Diplomat Specialty Pharmacy and ELGA Credit Union proudly present the 2012 American Muscle Motorway. The event will take place on Monday August 13 from 5:30-8:30 at the Diplotmat Specialty Pharmacy Atrium on 4100 S. Saginaw Street in Flint.
Join others from Genesee County for an evening of live music, entertainment, cocktails, delicious food, 1950's & 1960's attire and of course, muscle cars!
Both classic and new models of american muscle cars from local dealerships and residents will be on display in Diplomat's atrium and courtyard.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Back to the Bricks Automotive Pioneer Statue Fund. The fund is used to create life-sized, bronze statues commemorating the early pioneers of the auto industry whose careers took hold in Flint.
About the Motorway
The American Muscle Motorway is the second fundraising event to benefit the Automotive Pioneer State Fund 501(c)(3), created by the Back to the Bricks, Inc. Committee. Last year, Diplomat hosted the kickoff fundraiser for the statue fund, the Million Dollar Motorway.
In an effort to give back to the community and celebrate Flintâ??s heritage, the Automotive Pioneer Statue Fund 501(c)(3) was created to honor the individuals who shaped an industry, a community and a nation.
The goal is to organize events that inspire the next generation of leadership, as well as educate the general public on the legacy of the automotive industry, especially in Genesee County. Proceeds generated from the American Muscle Motorway go directly into the creation of these life-size, bronze statues that will be placed in relevant locations throughout the city of Flint. The first statue of Louis Chevrolet is finished, with David Buick now in the works.
Other automotive pioneer candidates include: Charles Nash, Walter P. Chrysler, C.S. Mott, Albert Champion and Charles F. Kettering.
