NEGAUNEE TOWNSHIP, Mich. - The popular "Iron, Steel and the Automobile" antique car show is returning to the Michigan Iron Industry Museum in the Upper Peninsula.

Sunday's event in Negaunee Township features dozens of automobiles and light trucks dating from 1909 through 1969, in addition to a presentation by Ford Motor Company corporate historian Robert C. Kreipke.

The 23rd annual antique automobile exhibit will commemorate the historic link between Michigan's iron, steel and automotive industries, which has been a defining feature of the state for more than 110 years.

Michigan Historical Center historian Troy Henderson says in a release the event is a "unique way for car and history buffs to spend Father's Day."

Museum admission is free, with a suggested parking donation of $3 per vehicle to attend the car show.
