Cool Official Michigan Thread

I figured all of us in Southeast Michigan needed a thread to exchange info and/or ideas. My hope is to set up a car meet somewhere in Southeast Michigan or Northern Ohio this spring. Any and all ideas for locations for current or new events would be appreciated!

Grand Rapids here. I would dig a get together this spring or summer.
I think road construction is going to be a real bitch this summer. Roads are in terrible condition and MI just got a bunch of money, so here come the orange barrels!
I will keep my eye on this thread. Not planning on the OH thing in a couple weekends...still getting snow here and don't want to put my nice wheels on yet, especially with the potholes.

Would anybody be up for a meet on the Lake Michigan shore this summer? I can't be gone away for a long day or overnight much because I live alone and have a dog that needs to get outside. Not as many import enthusiasts on the west side of the state as the east it seems, too.
We have some nice beach towns here. Grand Haven is nice for cruising and photos, so are Holland and Muskegon. Muskegon does a summer celebration every year with rides and bands, usually later July, I think. Some guys from Kzoo Rice are talking about a run to South Haven in June that I might check out. Also, there is the 28th Street Metro Cruise in Grand Rapids in August, mostly classic/hot rod/muscle, but imports are on the scene, too.
I got in on a couple poker runs with some guys from Kalamazoo when I had my Scion and it was a blast. I would like to hang out with other fun car enthusiasts again.

I think that sound s like a great idea...Grand Haven is a beautyful town. Hung out one night many years ago in a club called Lauguna Beach Club..had a great time...probably not around anymore.. there was a very large bar on a corner that had pool tables and seating on the roof??? Can't remember the name. Overall a very nice area for a meet.

Why would you move from FL to MI? Or anywhere in the Midwest for that matter.

your secret is safe with us just get some snow tires and you'll have no worries! i've lived in the midwest my entire life and 7 months a year there is nowhere i'd rather be! i'll admit winters can get a little old(snow in late march/early april), but spring thru fall is spectacular(fall is my favorite with all the changing colors). southwest michigan is a particularly nice place to be with lake michigan not too far away and a lot of neat little 'lake towns' along the coast. many people from chicago vacation in this area every year! speaking of chicago, it's my favorite 'big city'. the food, people and culture are great....and it's only a 2-4 hour drive from southwest michigan! wow! i just realized how cheezy all this sounded(like some 'explore michigan' commercial)!
