[July 08, 2016]
- Approximately 50+ Kaiser-Frazer classic cars will converge on
Atlanta, Illinois on Monday, July 11th. These rare vehicles will
gather for the 58th Annual National Convention of the Kaiser-Frazer
Owners Club International, being held this year in Springfield.
As part of this three-day event, the group has planned a trip to
Atlanta, specifically to eat lunch at Atlanta’s Palms Grill Café.
The Kaiser-Frazer cars will be in Atlanta from approximately
11:00am-2:00pm. The public is invited to come and view these classic
cars, now rarely seen on the open road.
The Kaiser-Frazer car company produced vehicles from 1947-1955.
Several new car companies entered the market following the end of
WWII, but Kaiser-Frazer was the only one to succeed.
The company was a combined effort of Henry J. Kaiser and Joseph
Frazer. Kaiser became a household name during the course of the war
by earning the title of “The Miracle Man” due to the Kaiser
Corporation’s ability to produce a remarkable number of ships for
the U.S. navy, some in as little as seven days.
