    Default Metro Detroit Meet - 2019

    Hey guys. I do plan to take a trip up to Metro Detroit again this year.

    Unfortunately, the usual weekend (the one before Labor Day week) happens to be a family member's 98th(!!!) birthday, so I will be in Nashville TN to celebrate.

    Would you all like to meet another weekend? My schedule is pretty flexible.

    I'm planning to take my 89 Colony Park with the Explorer motor this time Starting work on the swap next weekend!

    As long as it's not the first weekend in August I should be able to do any weekend.

    I might bring The Ice Car this time, snow tires and all.

    I intend to be present. No dates blocked out yet for me, but prefer not super short notice. Vehicle TBD...but I think we all know what I'm hoping it'll be.

    Definitely the Ranger. Definitely.

    Ashley and I should be able to attend no problem, same thing about the super short notice. I don't think we've missed a metro meetup yet. Although if it rains I'll be driving the pick up.

    2015, 2017, 2018. You and Ashley have been to them all, at least all the ones the current Detroit group has had. There were a bunch of Detroit area members that all seemed to disappear shortly before we came around. I've seen some old threads on their meets and sounded pretty similar to our style, informal time to hang out chat about cars or whatever topic comes up.

    I also was looking at pictures of the 2015 meet. Man, I thought The Ice Car looked like crap back then but now there's not much left. I'd still like to bring it though since I've had way more fun with that car, so I'll likely bring what's left of it.

    Any date suggestions yet?

    Sweet, I can't remember much. I think our first meet up was at Athen's. Shame that place got sold. It's also terrible that Pasqualie's closed up. That was another place which could have hosted as their parking lot is huge. Food was pretty decent and very affordable too.

    How about something within three weeks?

    I've also got some ideas for the Ice Car. Don't think you'd like them though haha.
