Nebraska Highway 66 Concourse Classic
July 22-23, 2017
The Strategic Air Command and Aerospace Museum is hosting a premier classic automobile
show with over 100 classic autos and motorcycles displayed around historic aircraft inside the museum. The show will also
include an outdoor event with parachute jumpers carrying flags.
The show highlights vintage and collectable cars, hotrods, and motorcycles featuring rare finds such as a 1910 Ford Model T
originally sold by a car dealership in Omaha, an original 1919 Excelsior motorcycle with a sidecar, a hand built 1928 Packard
model 526, and a 1928 Miller Perfect Indy 500 winner.
The museum’s honorary co-chairs, Jerry and Connie Vincentini, have a vision for this show that is unlike any show in the
Midwest. “We have always wanted to put together a show of hand-picked autos that are not only rare but could be displayed
in an entertaining way that adds an element of history to the show,” said Vincentini.
The Vincentini’s are no strangers to classic auto shows; they participate year round in showing their personal collection and
have coordinated classic auto shows for years. Vincentini and a committee of collectors personally handpicked and invited
rare auto owners to display in the first annual Nebraska Highway 66 Concourse Classic. The purpose of the show is to feature
rare finds and collectables from every era starting with the early 1900’s, as well as displaying today’s special interest autos
such as an electric racecar built by students, a front wheel drive dragster, and a 1910 Hupmobile barn find.
There will also be very rare finds such as a 1954 Kaiser – Darrin convertible roadster sports car and a 1954 Buick Skylark Fisher
custom built convertible. The 1954 Buick Skylark and a 1957 Cadillac are unique displays as there are only a few left and they
come from a limited production.
The show will feature an opening event at 12:00 pm on Saturday, July 22 with the Lincoln Sport Parachute Club performance
that includes a flag presentation with four parachute jumpers landing in formation.
The Concourse Classic show will be on display at the Strategic Air Command and Aerospace Museum Saturday, July 22 and
Sunday, July 23. The show will conclude at 2:00 pm on Sunday, July 23 with an awards ceremony. The public will be given
ballot cards as they enter the museum show and will vote for their favorite.
The museum is requesting support from all auto clubs. There will be reserved club parking holding 100 autos in a special
section of the parking lot. This will create a mini-show outside the museum for the public to enjoy outdoors before entering
The museum is open 9 am to 5 pm daily and general admission is $12 for adults, $11 for seniors and military, and $6 for youth
ages 4-12. The show is free for members and open to the public. General admission applies but the show is included in
About the Strategic Air Command & Aerospace Museum – Located between Lincoln and Omaha near Interstate 80, utilizes
over 300,000 square feet of exhibit, education, and event space. Organized in 1959, the original mission of the museum was
to commemorate the contributions of the Strategic Air Command, which until 1992 was headquartered at Offutt Air Force
Base. The museum moved to its current location in 1998 upon completion of a new indoor facility. The museum houses an
impressive collection of military aircraft and space artifacts, many of which have been restored in the museum’s on-site
restoration facility. To better serve the community, the museum offers STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and
Mathematics) education opportunities for students, teachers, families, and adult learners. Traveling exhibits, permanent
exhibits, and a variety of special events provide additional unique experiences for the museum’s members and guests.
