crest.gif Saturday, August 7th is the date set for SMOG’s Mid-West 914 Classic 2004. It will begin at 8:30 am on the lawn of the Whitmore Lake Big Boy/Best Western Motel at Exit 53 off of US 23. There will be competition for various categories such as “best 6 cylinder car”, “best 4 cylinder car, early and late model”, “best paint job”, “people’s choice”, etc. There will also be plenty of time for bench racing and parts swapping so bring your rare parts and memorabilia to sell or trade. We expect to hand out awards and then break for lunch about 12 noon. The afternoon kicks off with the “Fun Run Straight To HELL!” (Hell, Michigan. that is) and a stop for ice cream before continuing on with the Fun Run. From Hell, we’ll saddle up and experience some of the best 914 roads lower Michigan has to offer. We’ll finish up at Yesterday’s Collection. If you’ve never been there, you’re in for a treat. They sell all sorts of automobile memorabilia, models, books, you name it. Oh, and they also have an ice cream parlor!
We look forward to seeing everyone there. Further details regarding the event will be posted as they become available. Rooms are available at the Best Western Motel at a discount if you mention you’re with the Porsche 914 group. The number is (734) 449-2058.
I'll be there.

Hmm.. that T-shirt looks familair...
Hi Curvie,

Good Job & Thanks for re-organizing the Mid-West meet. My sympathy goes out to Dave, since he is the orginator of this meet. I am sure Dave will surface once he feels able.

Lets get down to the business of making this meet a success. Looks like lots of help is behind Curvie (Tom) & the SMOG group. Looking forward to Aug. 7th.

Maybe I can still have that "smack down" with Tom Potter on the hood of
Rich's 914-8 - Alien - 928 powered car. Hope he comes.
Winner get's a bottle of "Two Buck Charlie Wine". Same bottle from last year. Potter didn't show up. Are you out there Potter???


I have some other news soon to be released. Hint, Hint (it's about the VW invite to YPSI, MI on May 23rd.)
I've edited your avatar a bit.
here it is: 125x83.

Curvie, BS Chairman and I will be there. That's 3.
I just picked up a 71 canary yellow 914 and it will be there too.
4 cars and counting......

I had spoken with Dave about cooridinating the names of all the events so people would recognize them easier in the future. One common naming structure for West Coast/Mid West/East coast. My thoughts where in line with the VW guy's who have held similar events for 20 years with the same name. People in the VW circles still speak of XXX#10 10 years after the fact. I certaintly cant outright ASK you to follow along, but it would be greatly appreciated if we could speak about it over the phone. I still have your cell number.

Let me know.

According to map quest its 215 miles, and Michigan is 1 hour ahead...... Starts at,...subtract....times the diameter of the moon.... idea.gif Once I add all that up what does it mean confused24.gif

Either I get on the road at 3am or head up Friday night... ROAD TRIP...... Sean ya going??? driving.gif

Now to explain to the wife why after spending the entire week before on a "FAMILY" vacation with her side why I must go back to Michigan spank.gif

Hi I'm new to the board, I had lunch with Dave Kimple today @ monthly PCA meet. What a great guy. I'm so glad that the meet is going to still happen!! smilie_pokal.gif One other thing I'm picking up a 914/6 this friday I can't wait driving.gif I'll see you guys in August
Can someone tell me what City this event will be held in?
Curvie Roadlover
Garold, The only penalty for being late is less time to chatsmiley.gif and to wub.gif the cars. The site is about an hour north of last years' site. Hope to see you there. As for Sean, he better show, or I'm crossing him off my Christmas card list!! wink.gif

Whitmore Lake, Michigan approx. (10) miles North of Ann Arbor, MI

tanner, welcome to the club!
Robby, we could caravan if you like.

Tom, I must have just missed your Christmas card last year then, huh?

Hope to see yall there! cool.gif
Welcome jellybellybug,

My son & I drove down last year and we had a blast. We came down in my truck, so even if your 914 isn't up to it, try and make the show. From the cars I saw last year it was well worth the time.
Curvie Roadlover
Welcome jellybellybug!! wavey.gif
Hope you make it. I know it'll be worth the trip for you. Where are you located?

Hopefully, if mine is done I'll also try to make it. Just got it back from the body shop last week (total strip and repaint). Now the interior...suspension (5-lug) etc....oh what a list!
Curvie Roadlover
Hi Jim,
I just wanted to say don't not come just because your car isn't ready. Come anyway and meet the gang chatsmiley.gif drunk.gif beerchug.gif I'll bet that there will be some Chicagoland 914's coming that would'nt mind a support vehicle
I went last year in a non-914. I hope that I can make it in one this year. If not, look for a bright ass red hemi durango biggrin.gif

damm, how far is it from San Francsico?

if i go, i'd like to bring my car! wink.gif
2368.4 Miles from San Francisco to Lake Whitmore, according to Microsoft Streets and Trips. So, at 90 mph, it'll take about 26 and a half hours...give or take. Think yer car could make it as a carry-on?biggrin.gif

Garold, are you planning on driving up that morning? I'll drive wingman. (hopefully in a 914 of my very own, but we'll see) driving.gif

The ride from San Francisco to here is do-able in a 914 and I speak from personal experience on this. Did it in Nov.'02. The drive went better than I had expected. I brought along a huge bottle of motrin but never had to open it. I think 914's are, surprizingly, pretty comfortable cars for long hauls with the exception of the noise factor. driving.gif
Andy's not new to the long distance 914 drive. He drove my 914 from SF to Hot Springs, AR last year. driving.gif
