Kiwanis Club of Las Vegas will hold a benefit tour of Jim Rogers’ Sunbelt Classic and Antique Automobile Museum on March 14 from 6 to 9 p.m.
Called a celebration of American-made automobiles, more than 200 restored beauties comprise one of the most complete collections of U.S.-made and restored vehicles in the United States. Featured marques include Cadillacs, Chryslers, Dodges, Lincolns, Fords, Chevys and Buicks. Rogers also has a one-of-a-kind collection of convertibles in mint condition.
Other cars include select foreign sports cars, Model-Ts and classic Corvettes. The 40,000-square-foot museum also features 100-plus original large-size movie posters adorning the walls.
The Sunbelt Auto Collection is not open to the general public and viewing is available only through special showings with select community organizations.
Mike Pratt, operations manager for the auto collection museum, has worked with Rogers for more than 10 years at the museum and heads up all restoration projects. Separate restoration bays at the facility specialize in total body and painting, upholstery, chrome refinishing, parts manufacturing, engine technology and rebuilding, drive train refabrication and other aspects of automotive engineering.
Admission is $20. Only 100 tickets are available. Proceeds will benefit Kiwanis programs. Hors d’ oeuvres, wine and beer and will be served.
