YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The Butler Institute of American Art hosted a different kind of art on Friday: Vintage automobiles.
The show highlighted vehicles dating between 1910 and 1915. They were a collection owned by members of the Snappers Brass and Gas Club, which is on tour with vehicles that are part of the Brass Era.
The cars that are on tour are Columbia, White, EMF, Oakland, Locomobile, Overland, Hudson, Crawford, Stearns, Hubmobile REO, Abbott-Detroit, Coey Flyer, Stanley, Buick and Ford. They must be manufactured before 1916 to belong to the club.
There were cars at the show from all over the United States, mostly from the Eastern Part, as well as Florida and Massachusetts.
The cars were displayed in the lot of the Butler North Education Complex, which was formerly the First Christian Church next to the art museum.
The Snappers Brass and Gas Club was formed in 1993 in Ripley, Ohio. Nearly 300 families now participate.
