Top dealers for Vantage Mobility International (VMI), a leader in the manufacture and distribution of wheelchair accessible full-size and minivan conversions, are rallying around MV-1 owners. When top media outlets reported that Vehicle Production Group (VPG), producers of the MV-1, had shut down operations, VMI and their dealers created an emergency response phone number and internet clearing house to help consumers who may have difficulties getting service and parts. MV-1 owners who would like to speak with a VMI customer representative can call 1-855-VPG-VANS or visit www.VPGCrisis.com.
“For more than 25 years, wheelchairs users and their caregivers have trusted VMI and our dealers to solve their mobility challenges,” said Doug Eaton, president and CEO of VMI. “In fact, our top priority has always been to take care of our customers. That’s why we appreciate our Select Dealer Network taking the initiative to create a support program for MV-1 owners and help ensure that none of them are left stranded. If we can help just one customer get out of a safety bind or access reliable mobility transportation, we’ll have played a positive role in this mess.”

The 7th Annual Barrington Concours d’Elegance is making history by featuring five of the finest classic French Avions Voisins in existence for the first time in the Midwest. The Mullin Automotive Museum, in Oxnard Cali., is sending the five feature cars built between the 1920s and 1930s to be displayed at the Concours on July 12-14, 2013, at the Makray Memorial Golf Club in Barrington, Ill.
“It’s an honor to host this extraordinary exhibit of Avions Voisins from the collection of Peter Mullin and the Mullin Automotive Museum,” said David Cooper, Concours Co-Chair and Chief Executive Officer. “It will be the first time that these iconic vehicles will be shown in the Midwest. Gabriel Voisin was a brilliant, though eccentric, engineer and designer. These cars represent the breadth of his conceptual thinking as it progressed through turbulent times.”
