Michigan Region Activities

Monthly activities are scheduled for Michigan Region members and their guests

Activities for Members & Guests

The Michigan Region CCCA Activities Committee schedules a unique event almost every month of the year.  These include visits to venues such as private collections (many of which are not usually open to the public); museums & libraries; restoration & manufacturing shops; design schools, art studios & galleries, etc.; and almost always involve a stop for Ice Cream!

Our current Activity flyer (shown at right) is sent by mail or email to each member.  It includes details of the event, date & times, cost, and the reservation information.

The email version is much more fun & interesting – it includes:

  • Links to additional information,
  • A link so you can create a personal driving map
  • The ability make your reservation and pay the cost online (credit card or PayPal) 
  • Saves you the time & cost of return snail mail

It is important to note that due to restrictions of owners of private collections, insurance, etc. that many of the Activities sponsored by the Michigan Region are limited to its members and their guests.  If you have any questions about attendance please contact us before making your plans – info@classiccarsofmichigan.com.

 What could you expect if you attend one of our monthly activities?

Ice Cream Social

An annual event for the MI Region that is always fun and fulfilling!  View the extensive outdoor art collection on an historic farm site.  Members bring their Classic Cars for everyone’s enjoyment.  And bottomless dishes of ice cream is served for everyone (and Hummers are available for the adults).  An activity on everyone’s bucket list.

Annual Steak Roast

For those of us who enjoy steak or salmon cooked to perfection and all of the side dishes – this is the activity to attend.  The MI Region annual Steak Roast is held on the grounds of a lakeside estate in Oakland county.  Spend the afternoon with friends sharing Classic Cars, good music (live band), and a great collection of Classic and other vehicles.  BYOB, rain or shine; don’t miss it!

Judging Seminar

Effectively Judging a Classic Car takes understanding and training!  We all want to learn how our cars are judged and that the process is uniform and fair. The MI Region sponsors an annual training session so members can learn about the Judging and Tabulating process, hone their skills, and practice on actual Full Classic cars that are undergoing restoration in one of the country’s premier restoration facilities.  Even if you won’t be judging who would want to miss an opportunity to see cars that will soon appear at the major Concours events around the country?

Grand Classic

A Grand Classic is a CCCA sponsored car show where members cars are judged on the standard utilized by virtually all Concours car shows.  Whether you compete for awards or not – this is a chance to show and learn how your car compares to other vehicles based on uniform criteria such as authenticity, condition, and safety.

Fall Color Tour

The Fall Colors in southeast Michigan are spectacular!  A great opportunity to get the Classic out for perhaps the last drive before winterizing it.  A comfortable drive over back roads to view the changing colors, stop at a cider mill or lunch, enjoy the crisp weather and fellowship of members and guests.

Private Collections

We are privileged to visit many of the private collections in our Region that are not generally open to the public.  Automobiles of every class, era, and category; memorabilia; art, music boxes, etc.  

Museums

Our Region has some of the finest museums and collections in the world.  For instance, Maritime Exchange Museum is home to the world’s largest collection of lighthouse lenses, buoy lights and related lighthouse antiques. Their spectacular collection of lighthouse artifacts and memorabilia. 

CARavan

A CARavan is a CCCA sponsored driving tour – usually a week or longer with many scheduled stops along an historic route, in an interesting region of the country (there are even some international CARavans to consider).  These events usually draw  up to 100 cars and people from around the country.  Fun, food, friends – CARavans have it all!

Concours Car Shows

Do you want to see some of the world’s finest cars in a beautiful setting?  What if you could also see more than Classic Cars? How about classic boats, airplanes, race cars, sports cars; attend an auction, seminar, cocktail party, banquet; stay in some world famous resorts?  Then you will want to attend a Concours d’Elegance!

Ice Cream

Ice Cream and Classic Cars – the best combination we can think of!  We find ice cream is available everywhere and sometimes in the most interesting facilities such as this one housed in a repurposed Santa Fe Railroad Caboose.  Join us for a cone or sundae and visit with friends before heading home.
