Looks like registration is open for this event May 18 and 19
Too bad the show is in Michigan and I live in California. Would love to go anyway.
We might go just to see the cars.
Gilmore is great! Allow yourself a full day to take in as much as possible....
Gilmore is the largest car museum in North America..Well worth a trip.

YOU HAVE NOW COMPLETED A BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO THE DETROIT CAR HISTORY
I will be there in one of my Model As. I love about 3/4 a mile down the road!
That should read "I live half mile down the road" phone loves to change my words
I'll be there with the Fordor again. We plan to camp in the RV. It's a great show.
In Auburn, Indiana, is also the NATMUS museum right behid the ACD Museum where FURURLINER #10 is now on display.
I will be there also. I will drive the tour in my 26 Touring but this year plan show my dad's 26 Fordor (which I also plan to take to OCF if they smile upon me). My dad passed away in Dec 2016 and he would have liked knowing his car was out and about.
I’ll be there too with my father Phil. We have a unique history with the Gilmore Museum as a family. My sister may have bee the only woman restored to win best of show there with a Model T. Wouldn’t miss it.
Highly encourage the Gilmore Pre-War Tour and Show. Have been there the last two years and had a great time, although it rained on the Friday tour last year so drove 50 of the 90+ miles in the rain (no wipers and Rain X doesn't work too well when there is little airflow across the windshield). Storm curtains came in handy.
Then there is the museum itself - awesome!
