    Cars & Coffee at the 40th Annual Concours d'Elegance: Plymouth, MI

    Thought I check if anyone is planning on coming to the Cars & Coffee at The Inn at St. John's in Plymouth, MI on Saturday, July 28 from 7:00 a.m - 11:00 a.m.

    If my new Michelin's show up this week, I'm taking the (Pearl) Grey Wolf. If not, I'll be driving the Z4.

    Here's a link to the event for more info: http://concoursusa.org/schedule-of-e...urday-july-29/

    @sheward, I see your brother is hosting the BATTLE OF THE BRANDS on Friday night. Will you be in town? Would love to finally meet you.

    BATTLE OF THE BRANDS
    Presented by Kip Sheward Motorsports
    6- 9 pm
    (Free and open to the Public)

    Friday night at the Concours hundreds of sports car (of all makes and models) owners come together on the grounds at the Inn at St. John’s to celebrate automobile and motorcycle manufacturers from around the world! Owners and spectators enjoy amazing cars, food, drink and live entertainment provided by The Exhaust Tones.

    EXHAUST TUNE COMPETITION – This year we will be awarding the vehicle that can create the best ‘tune’! Think your exhaust sounds the best, let’s hear it PLAY!!!!

    Hope to see you there! If you can't make it, I'll be taking plenty of photos.

    Unfortunately not, Max. But please do take pictures of anything and everything as all the automobilia there makes me think of home and good times. Find Kip and tell him I would like to be there. I'll keep watch for a fall event where I can finally meet you and soak up some of that traditional Detroit car culture, 036 style. The Exhaust Tune Competition sounds fun! The NHRA guys hold something similar called a "Cackle Fest". Thanks for the link. I didn't know.

    Cars & Coffee at the 40th Annual Concours d'Elegance: Plymouth, MI

    I could only make it to the Friday Battle of the Brands event and ran into another forum member, rubadub3 (Harrison), who owns a beautiful ‘92 in Smoke Silver. It was great to meet you Harrison.

    Drew, your brother was busy doing what he does best, and I could not get a word into him.



    Hopefully, cargen (Jay) took some good shots on Saturday or Sunday.

    It looks to be a fine day and the 500Es look great in the low lighted sky. I dig the roof rack. I've nearly bought two with no intention of realistically using them. Thanks for the pics!

    I was looking for the OEM rack, but could never find one so I bought the Yakima rack. Very solid and protective of the paint.

    I had a MTB relay yesterday. Finished in the top 10! Not bad for an old man!


    Post race IPA!

    Very presentable Sir! Your car is Superbad. I'm trying to make time myself to start cycling again, after many years.

    Unfortunately, my phone was acting up and I could not snap up any pics
    It was great to see rubadub3 (Harrison) and his 500E though! His car is MINT and really made me want to get that respray done very soon!
