Cumberland’s Ford Model T and Model A Car Show began in 2000 with 18 automobiles on display. 2012 saw the biggest show with 51 automobiles dating from 1906 to 1931. Roadsters, paneled cars, depot hacks, Model TT and Model AA dump trucks, and even tractors have been dispayed.
In September 2014, the Allegany Museum partnered with the Queen City Region Antique Car Club and the AACA to host the 2014 Show.
Visitors spotted at the local Model T and Model A Car Shows include Governor Martin O’Malley, and William H. Macy who came to the Show to buy back his father’s Model A 2-door Coupe, restored by Neil Furlow.
An ongoing exhibit in the Downtown Area is the Model T and Model A window exhibit in the former McMullen Brothers Department Store Window, featuring a 1928 MG Boat Tail Roadster.
