By July 2005 Fleetwood Country Cruize In, held at the private estate of cadillac collector Steve Plunkett, in London, Ontario, hit the ground running with 900 cars and 4,000 - 5,000 people from Canada and the USA. It was Canada's turn to host the Auburn Cord Duesenberg event so we pulled out all the stops for this one! At 2 p.m., eight WWII air craft conducted four flybys over the show. This spectacular display included the Avro Lancaster and Fairey Swordfish Biplane - only two of each of these planes still fly in the world. Vintage aircraft was a perfect fit. This was the first time the Hamilton War Plane Museum ever booked an air show with 'some guy over the phone' as they were accustomed to booking only with citys and large corporations for such an event. Many thanks to Legendary Motor Cars for their display of muscle cars and RM Classic Cars with four Duesenbergs valued at $8 million. Many thanks also to all the participants for displaying such an outstanding variety of vehicles.
