This is a beautiful setting on Lake St.Clair, next to the GPYC. There is a marina, lakefront walk, pier, and a beautiful big-tree park setting. This park is generally only open to residents, and I'm looking to see if anybody has a really nice,drive-able ride to this event. This will be a growing event, and is sure to be a "must-do" in the future. Joe Pappas is bringing one of the "Mopar/Motown Missile" cars. If you have a nice [any brand] car, pre-1990...bring it out. There will be cider-donuts, free hotdog, chips, pop[for car owner/driver]....dash plaques, and several trophies. Music will be non-blaring... 60's, 70's, and 80's tunes. There is a concession stand. I used to run the security at this park for the Dept of Public Safety, some time ago. Nice place!!! See and please complete/return entry for my wife to get proper amounts of supplies/food. This is the 1st time, and should be a great start. Pre-registered folks will get dash plaques, until they run out. We have no idea how many will attend....but hoping for at least 100. NO TRAILERS unless you have something spectacular.

Thanks, and enjoy....Mike Ricketts/ Macomb Missile.

Hi folks. It's imperative that people that plan to attend this show, call or email the contact info[above]. This is a first time show, and a rough head-count will be very helpful in the planning of supplies. Please contact as a courtesy.

Thanks, Mike Ricketts/Macomb Missile.

It looks like we have 30 cars who people have bothered to pre-register. Quite the variety, but it also appears to be mopar heavy[2/3 so far]. LOL. I'm thinkin'/hoping this is gonna be a good turn-out.

Joe Pappas is bringing the 71 Motown Missile, Challenger.

Doesn't matter. We're 2/3 mopars registered. It's supposed to be a beautiful day. High 70's and just a few clouds. Anybody else gonna come out? Tell your brand-x buddies.

Had a great day. We had a bunch of nice mopars, along with a variety of brand-X and euro. The Motown Missile sounded great, and a photo-shoot was done with Lake St. Clair in the background, after the event. I'd like to thank all those who attended, and we already have plans on a bigger and better show for next year. Lots of smiling people, today.

This was a really great show, thanks to you and your wife for all your effort! It is a perfect setting for a show and the only complaint I have is that it could have been a little longer, maybe noon to 4 next year?

Some highlights.

Great place to hang out if you're into boats as well, notice my yacht in the last 2 pics....
My Challenger is making some noise in the front end and I didn't have time to diagnose or fix it last week so I took the trusty Imperial.

Matt, thanks for the pictures. We already have a few things in the works for next year.....
Joe and Lynn said that next year, they'll bring the "wire car". I didn't really hear any complaints, and I know people were very happy about the venue. All in all, I'd say it was a great "1st" annual show.
