August 14th, 10 am to 2pm

Together with your guide, you’ll travel to the factories, workshops, and homes of these titans of industry. You’ll enjoy private behind-the-scenes tours and get glimpses into the rarely seen spaces that incubated our automotive heritage. The tour will traverse the city exploring the path taken by Detroit’s first horseless carriage, the first stretch of paved road in the U.S., the factory where tens of thousands of workers made the assembly line a success, and so much more. We will follow the birth of the automobile, the merger of the great brands, the romances and scandals, achievements and honors, and lastly stop to pay our respects to the men and women themselves at their final resting places. 

You’ll even be treated to a light meal (it ain't vegetarian. it can't be made vegetarian. we ain't sorry about it.), famous among Ford factory workers -still cooked and served in the same way at the same location. We promise a nonstop day of surprises, stories, adventure, and history on the Golden Automotive Era Tour.
