    The first thing to comes to mind is the Roush factory, off Plymouth Rd.

    Not sure how they would like it considering none of them are Roush cars


    But eh its worth a shot. It's literally down the street from the hotel.
    '98 SVT E0 BLK/MNB#1663 3L Always broke. - Now with a supercharer for even less reliability! Not sure if fun.
    '99 SVT E1 BLK/TAN#0741 Sold. Lots of fun.

      Seriously.... Hotel parking lot.

      Like Livinsvt said, Show and shine is a snooze fest. Walk around see everyones (that ya already saw thur. fri.) in 15.. maybe 30 minutes and then what? sit around and shoot the . I personally would rather look at some cars, crack a beer and fire up the grill.

          Automotive Hall of Fame... they tend to do this alot for car clubs and they often bring in food and local radio stations. Its right next to The Henry Ford and Greenfield Village which is nice for some of the out of towners who have never been to any of those locations.

            So if you have it at the hotel parking lot, what makes it any less of a snoozefest than having it at a location that has something else to look at besides our cars?
            Enough time is already spent at the hotel parking lot all weekend, so why have the show and shine there too?

            I like that Roush suggestion and Mark's suggestion as well.

            I'd really love to avoid having the show and shine in the hotel parking lot or in some random mall parking lot.

              I agree with Kim on this one. If for no other reason that there remains a finite number of hotel parking lot hours left on my liver. That number is dwindling both radpidly and exponentialy.

              Automotive HOF sound like a great idea.

                I think that the HOF or the Roush factory would both be great places. I just know that the Roush factory is SUPER close to the hotel like beans said. Might be something good to look into.

                  ok heres the options.

                  automotive hall of fame. everyone would have to send an additional $6/car but would recieve two tickets to the auto hall of fame.

                  or
                  hotel parking lot. free

                  it doesn't make a diff to me personally. totally up to you guys. we have to put a 150 deposit to reserve the ahof. and we need to know and cover the diff by the 14...

                      automotive hall of fame for sure! $6 per car is no big deal, especially if you get two free tickets.

                          x2. the show n shine shouldnt be at the same place where we will be hanging out most of our time at Spring Zing. not only would we get to see other members cars, we would also see many historic and really cool cars if we do it at the museum!

                            am i safe in assuming that'd we'd kinda mingle or whatever, so not everyone is inside while all our cars are in the "open"
