Since we are all still staying at home to prevent the spread of COVID-19, MotorCities is presenting a new series of virtual programs featuring members of our Speakers Bureau discussing interesting automotive history topics. Each program is FREE and presented as a live Zoom conference.

The series kicks off this Friday at noon with “Mascots of Motion” with automotive journalist Steve Purdy. His presentation has classic and collector car hood ornaments. Purdy says, the slide show accompanying the talk is a colorful exploration of about 50 of these images, from a Rolls-Royce “Spirit of Ecstasy” to a Stutz “Ra.”

Purdy is a Williamston, Michigan-based multimedia automotive journalist. He is a charter member of the Automotive Press Association in Detroit, a member of the Society of Automotive Historians and a trustee of the National Automotive History Collection of the Detroit Public Library.
