Do a quick search and you'll see that TSS tried to arrange a meeting at the Gilmore Museum last fall. I think only one other person was able to make it.

Will it be in Michigan?
Traveling to the real midwest is a long boring drive from here. :shifty

:duck:





Seriously though, if someone is going to organize a Michigan meet, we should schedule it for NAIAS or Woodward next year. If everyone already makes plans for those and would not be able to make it, we could hit the show in St. Ignace (it's a nice drive and always a pretty decent show).

Yes, tried and failed last year (but did have a great time meeting Frank - the other member who showed up).

Gilmore opens up in April. One more time, anybody interested? I am going to take a trip there with my son anyway, if others are interested, we can coordinate.

I'm in as long as it's a weekend we don't have pre-booked! Keep me posted once you pick a date ... Just moved to SW Michigan last year and have never been there ... or heard of it for that matter!

Even if we don't go as a group, you need to make a visit out there. In the middle of nowhere, in Hickory Corners MI. About 10 HUGE multi-story barns on a ton of gorgeous land with some of the most incredible cars I have ever seen.

Actually just checked and it opens up May 1. I will post a date... whoever shows, great. I did a lot of planning 2 years ago and everybody except Frank had to bail. So this time, basically, I will just post a day/time when my son and I (and possibly my wife) will be there.

FWIW, wife and I are free the weekends of May 16 & 23 ... June is wide open.

^^ cool. I am thinking June most likely. Better guarantee of nice weather and it is also a nice place to picnic...plus they also ususally have some special outside car meets (ie Vette clubs) on weekends in June/July/August.

Looking forward to hopefully meeting you there. I will keep everybody posted.

Hi all, I just purchased a STS V and live near Gilmore Barns. Did you all make it to the Barns in June? Maybe 2010 we could all get together.
FYI, 2009 had Dennis Gage from "My Classic Car" out there. A few years before they had Bobby Rahal. Beautiful cars, fantastic grounds.
Please keep me in the loop for this upcoming year.

Good luck ... I waited for last year's trip to the barn notice and nothing ever came about ... I'd organize it, but no idea where they are yet!
