Bortz Auto Collection at Meadowbrook

Filed under Features

The Miller Family owned Meadowbrook Farm for more than two centuries, and with the Winnipsaukee Lake to its side and majestic mountains surrounding the farm, it is one of the most picturesque locations in the region. Concerts became a traditional event for the family to host, and in keeping that tradition, the Meadowbrook U.S. Cellular Pavilion still hosts breathtaking events. The Meadowbrook Musical Arts Centre is now the venue for concerts and exhibitions, while the pavilion acts as a concert and festival venue. On 25 July 2010, a very special exhibition will be held at Meadowbrook.

Over and above being a music industry entrepreneur and restaurant mogul, Joe Bortz is known as a famous concept car restorer and avid car collector. His focus is mainly on vehicles from the 1950’s, which were showcased at the legendary General Motors Motorama. His love for cars led to the creation of the Bortz Auto Collection, and his collection only consists of extremely rare vehicles. As concept cars were created only as showcase vehicles and not for production, finding these prototype vehicles is a very difficult task. Fortunately Bortz found out about a junk dealer, purely by accident, who was selling off the cars in parts. As time went by, Bortz ended up with twenty concept cars, such as the 1958 Pontiac Club de Mer, the 1953 Pontiac Perisienne and the 1954 Pontiac Bonneville Special. Some prototype vehicles can still be seen in museums around the country, but the Bortz Auto Collection remains truly unique. Four of his vehicles will be on display at Meadowbrook, of which one will be the 1955 Chevrolet Biscayne, saved from the junk yard, and that took twenty-two years to restore.

All four of these restored cars will be showcased together for the first time in fifty-five years, as the Bortz Auto Collection brings the rarest of vehicles to the Meadowbrook exhibition. The other three unique vehicles will be the 1953 Buick Wildcat I, the 1954 Pontiac Bonneville Special and the 1953 Pontiac Parisienne. Motoring enthusiasts should not miss out on the opportunity to see the these amazing vehicles at the Meadowbrook U.S. Cellular Pavilion.
