I received the following email a yesterday from The Henry Ford, on THF Letterhead;
Dear Car Show Participant,
The Henry Ford remains committed to our goal of producing best-in-class, mission-driven car shows. We know the recent changes we introduced to Motor Muster and Old Car Festival disappointed many of you, and we’ve spent these past few weeks working hard to course-correct our missteps. We’ve been speaking and consulting with many of our participants, our employees and our guests, and the feedback we’ve received has been extremely helpful and we thank you.
We would like to share some of our plans moving forward:
All application fees for this year’s Motor Muster and Old Car Festival will be refunded within the next few weeks. If you registered for OCF, we will refund fees already paid. In addition, the application for next year’s events will return to a refundable fee of $25, and each participant will be offered up to four guest passes on request.
If you need to reach someone directly during normal business hours, Monday through Friday, please call Odelle Cadwell at 313.982.6100 ext. 2086 or Kristi Best at 313.982.6058. You can also email us directly anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll respond as soon as we are able.
Your continued involvement with and support of The Henry Ford is vital to the success of programs such as these. We thank you for your time and dedication, and we look forward to working with you on creating many more memorable experiences for you and your family to enjoy.

I like it!
From the classic movie, "Breaking Away".
Wasn't a meeting scheduled at HF for this, tonight? If so, is it still 'on'? Also, if it it is still on .... was the meeting for folks designated by their respective club, or open for all?
does this mean the OCF will be cancelled this year so they have time to get everything back on course?
I just talked to THF.
Old Car Fest is on for this year. So no entry fee and 4 free wrist bands. (not a bad deal)
Notifications of accepted applications will be going out shortly
This great news.
Looks as if they want to make the OCF Great Again!
ARe they stopping any more applications they, or still accepting?
Applications are still open
Sorry ... yes .... I just got to their application page:
