The Ypsilanti Automotive Heritage Collection is a popular place for automobile enthusiasts of all ages. So when the  PBS series Antiques Roadshow visited Detroit last summer, they wondered what might be interesting to their viewers in the larger Southeast Michigan area. The Ypsilanti Automotive Heritage Collection received a call from a representative of the show last April and requested information about the museum, which was sent to them.  The Roadshow then made arrangements to visit the museum and requested an old Hudson for their use.  Jack Miller arranged for  Doug Edds allow the use of  his 1953 Hudson for the visit.  When the crew from the Roadshow arrived, they set up cameras inside and outside of the car where Mark L. Walberg, the star, was recorded driving through Depot Town, down East cross Street and through Riverside Park.  On another day, Mark L. Walberg arrived with Noel Barrett, the Roadshow toy expert and the focused on all the models on display.  This visit from the Roadshow will add yet  another feather in the cap of the Ypsilanti Automotive Heritage Collection Museum, and the city of Ypsilanti.
