Trails Center Hosts Cool Classic Orphan Car Show

Come to the National Historic Trails Interpretive Center (NHTIC) and see classic cars that traveled the highways of the west.

The Studebaker Drivers Club and the NHTIC are hosting a Cool Classic Orphan Car Show at the Trails Center on Saturday, July 20 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

"Modern roads and highways often closely followed traditional pioneer routes in many locations in the west," noted NHTIC Director Mike Abel.  "Traveling these routes gives modern travelers a glimpse into the past of what pioneers experienced on their journeys."

The theme of the show is current transportation uses of the histrionic pioneer trail routes.  All entries must be a minimum of 25 years old and no longer manufactured.  There is no cost for registration and trophies will be awarded. There will be a food vendor on site.

Admission to the NHTIC will be free during the show and a special program will be held at 1 p.m.  For more information or to register your car contact Bruce at (307) 267-8370 or Jim at (307) 262-6634.

The NHTIC is a part of the BLM's National Landscape Conservation System (NLCS). The areas of the NLCS are specifically designed to conserve, protect and restore the exceptional scientific, natural, cultural, ecological, historical, and recreation values of these treasured landscapes.

The NHTIC is a public-private partnership between the BLM and the National Historic Trails Center Foundation. The facility is located at 1501 N. Poplar Street, Casper, Wyo. The Center is currently operating on seasonal hours, and is open Tuesday – Sunday, 8:00 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of America’s public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. In Fiscal Year 2015, the BLM generated $4.1 billion in receipts from activities occurring on public lands.
