- CARavan -

a Full Classic® Car Driving Opportunity

 'CARavan' is the CCCA term for a club-sponsored driving tour.  While many members drive their Classics to our monthly activities, a CARavan is a more serious driving opportunity.  CARavans are usually of one week duration, cover distances of 500 miles or more and are planned under the auspices of National CCCA. The CCCA usually holds two or more CARavans each year, which are hosted by various Regions so they take place around the USA and Canada. There are also international CARavans in Europe & other parts of the world and once every five years there is a multiple week CARavan.

One of the great pleasures of being around Full Classic® cars - whether you own one or not -  is the opportunity to drive or ride in them.   We enjoy and encourage driving our cars (in fact, many find the cars can be maintained in better condition if they are driven regularly).

The Michigan Region has hosted several CARavans - the most recent was in September 2014 - driving more than 1,100 miles up and down the Lake Michigan shoreline.  More than 60 cars and 120 people from around the USA and Canada participated in our 9-day trip over scenic roads, visiting historic sites, many private collections, wineries, Sleeping Bear National Park, lighthouses, etc.

- Mini-CARavans -

Ontario Mini-CARavan - June 2015
The Michigan Region also plans an occassional Mini-CARavan - usually a two day overnight trip within our region or the upper midwest; sometimes in coordination with other adjacent Regions.  

The most recent was our June 2015 Ontario Mini CARavan with 30 participants in 20 cars.  We started at the Ontario Transportation Museum near Windsor, Ontario; went on to RM Restorations in Blenheim, and then to Steve Plunkett's Cadillac Auto Salon in London.  After a fine dinner & overnight in London we drove to Chatham to see Mike Fairbairn's collection, then to Sombra for ice cream and a ferry boat ride back to the USA, and on to a riverside dinner in St. Clair, MI.
