Too bad the show is in Michigan and I live in California. Would love to go anyway.

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.

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!
