What: First V get together for 2013 for Michigan and surrounding area guys/gals

When: May 5th (that's Cinco de Mayo) at about 12:30 pm (for just a couple of hours)

Where: Baker's Restaurant (Milford, Michigan) http://www.bakersofmilford.com/1/252/index.asp



(http://www.bakersofmilford.com/1/252/index.asp)
This is the opening day of the free car show they have every Sunday all summer long, and several of us try to meet up here every year. This is a very family-oriented event ... the restaurant is very nice, there's a miniature golf place next door if you bring kids or if you are so inclined, and there's a Dairy Queen across the street. The cars are plentiful and amazing. Hopefully, the weather will be accommodating.

I tried to make a list of local people, but I know I'm missing several. Here's who I have:

Den_93
JD03Cobra
Bigron
ronr
PJGross
Tmac11
barrok69
liqidvenom
GMBound
slothV
Chris Cornett
WesH8398 (Sarnia)
ROG (Toledo)

There are more; I just didn't have time to search for them all, and the Registry doesn't have even 10% of actual V owners listed.


So, come on out there, and let's put a face on those who've we not met before in the flesh. You'll have a GREAT time!!!

Oh, what the heck ... yes, it's true ... it's been snowing for the better part of the day today. But, it's suppose to be in the 70s beginning in a couple of days and WILL be nice on the 5th. I guarantee it!

Well Milford is an almost an hour away and I have been 70 hrs a week so I cant say for sure.

Well Milford is an almost an hour away and I have been 70 hrs a week so I cant say for sure.Depending on where you are in Dearborn, it's about 40 minutes maximum. Baker's is right on Milford Road half way between I-96 and the city of Milford itself, so you don't even have to go all the way into town. If you've been working 70 hrs a week, I can understand that free time is pretty precious to you.

But, we really don't get together much around here. The Dream Cruise is the only other time unless something pretty special pops up, and that isn't often. Make it if you can; would love to put a face on a name.

Hey guys,
I've meet up with some folks on here when I lived in KY and it is good to put a face with a name. I will be attending as I just moved back in Jan. See you all on the 5th!

I just got my car back from a new clutch install (LS9) and a new tune (Dr. Phil). It feels like a new car. The old F' Twin disk Clutch I had was a POS!

Excellent! Who installed your clutch? My stock clutch is getting long in the tooth.

Jakes Automotive in Sterling Heights. I had some mod hell issues, but that was because I had some bad used parts.

I lived in Spring Hill sub (SE corner of Adams & Walton) as a kid. Rochester looked a whole lot different back then. Lived in five other houses, too, mostly on northwest side (Adams & Tienken).

Calling for showers on Sunday.

Don't panic, though, as weather can change on a dime around here.

Ended up being seven of us (five V1s and two V2s). Perfect weather at 72 deg, mostly sunny, and a nice breeze.

I took pictures as more and more guys arrived just in case someone left before I could get their pic, so that's the background to these selected five pics.


Den_93 and Torxila:

Here's all seven cars:

This is looking west at just before 2 pm. Had I looked in the other three directions, there would be a similar view with lots and lots of cars in the grass behind, in a separate parking adjacent to this one, and the late arrivals near the dumpsters:

... Lol at everybody tilting the sunroofs up for pics ...During late April and early May and sometimes in the fall are the only times you can do this. Too hot in the summer, and too cold in the winter.


Just kidding ... we're busted. It's to look cool. :hide:

Any chance for a second meet this summer anyone?Certainly.

But, you know, once summer gets into full gear for people here in Michigan, finding an unused date/time that works for all of us can be tough ... real tough.

Next "scheduled" meeting is August 17th at the Dream Cruise at JD03Cobra's office at Woodward and Big Beaver Rd.

Maybe a quick Baker's meet some Sunday at noon would work. Let's see what the other guys think.
