It was a great time. It didnt take long for me to remember exactly why I come to these things. All these people are from totally different backgrounds and parts of the country but we all converge to hang out and party because of a car we may have owned. Haha, its hilarious.

It was pretty neat to poke around Detriot(thats a misspelling Ill keep) a little bit too. We didnt even scratch the surface but seeing the totally abandoned neighborhoods and the former grandeur of the station above really drove home how much of a fall that city has taken.

Oh, also, I cant wait to see your pictures, Greg. You were snapping away all weekend! I only took like 7 pics the whole time and half of them were trying to get my odometer when it hit 190000 about 5 miles from home.

Image

Before the bonfire:
Image

Prepping the bonfire:
Image

The bonfire, stacked high:
Image

The flame was massive!:
Image

Image

Image

I find this angled, out-of-focus shot nice and creepy:
Image

Image

Image

Sunday
Not a whole lot happened Sunday, except for rain, so in the late afternoon, those that were left finished off the meet with a marathon of Top Gear:
Image

Finally, here's a few panoramic shots from the station. Note, I left these untouched, so they are in their original resolutions, at almost 3MB a piece.

Image

Image

Image

That's all for now. I will have the short track video up soon, and later I will share at least one interesting/stupid story. This was another awesome meet, just wished the weather was better and that it was longer!!

I wish I could have joined in on the fun but I did not know about the event. Is this an annual event only? If so, do you have a date set for next year? Are there any smaller, regional gatherings coming up? I live in Commerce Township, MI and own a 1990 SSE that's my daily driver. I did a poor man's restoration over the winter. It's not as nice as most of the cars I saw in the photos but I like it. Let me know if anything else is coming up. Thanks, Ren

Looks like an awesome meet and heck of a turn out! Great looking cars by all! Looks like a pretty awesome train of cars you had roaming around the streets.

Thanks again to Matt for hosting such an awesome event!
