Generally a pretty big following all across the state and a little beyond. Toledo to Holly, over to Grand Rapids and down to Ft Wayne.

We have a pretty sizeable group that meets for dinner and drinks a couple times a year. Last time we talked about getting together at one of the local drag strips' test and tune night for a little straight-line fun.

I'm not sure where you are located, but every Saturday morning there's a cars and coffee at Pasteiner's Auto Zone Hobbies NE corner of 14 mile and Woodward.  Not sure of the impact of the current health concerns though.

In the summer months there are always a lot of cool cars out in both Birmingham and Royal Oak on Thursday evenings.

Woodward is a constant rolling show every evening in the couple of weeks lead up to the Dream Cruise.

Car and Driver normally does a few big big cars and coffee events at M1 Concourse over the summer.

I've been to the M1 event a few times last summer and it was a great time.

I live up in the thumb but the last two years my wife and I found out about woodward on Saturday nights and went quite a few times to that. That is a blast, just sitting there watching the cars go by. As well as driving up and down and getting challenged lol lots of fun and having a flashy green car makes it even funner lol

I'm kind of new to meeting up with car guys. Been building and enjoying cars for the last 20 yrs but the last two years now with this 911 I've been trying to get more involved and we have been having a lot of fun with this stuff.

Fellow car enthusiast just have a great attitude.

There's also a cars and coffee at Zingermanns Roadhouse in Ann Arbor once a month April through October. Check out Renstatt Racing in Ann Arbor and Automotive Techniques in Novi for Porsche related gatherings. Bring it out to the track! I'm an instructor with Rally Sport Region PCA, we'd love to have you out!

artur1808-from threads Ive read you and I live pretty close to one another, or at least travel some of the same roads.  I'm in Beverly Hills near 13 Mile Rd and Evergreen though I travel all over SE MI for work.  Adrian is pretty close to me, like walking distance.

Yup, we need to do a GTG as soon as it's safe.  Not only do Todd (Wawazat) and I live walking distance, it's actually closer to walk than by car!

Y'all are welcome to drive out to Climax one of these weekends and park 6 feet apart and we will all yell lies about projects and bench race in the back yard.

I do business with some of your corporate neighbors John-Systex, Franklin Plastics, Janesville Acoustics, AST, and a tiny bit with Denso.   I need to meet you for lunch sometime when I'm out your way.

I have scheduled a few vacations in Michigan.. we have family up there..and its fun to spend a few days around dearborn, Woodard from ~ 12 mile up to pontiac.

Have never been to M1 concourse yet,

But I did drag the Disco Wagon to Pasteiner's auto zone for a Cars and Coffee one morning. I got parked in for a few hours but it was fun.

 

We also had a great time River Roar Car show up in bay city MI.

I'm within ~1 mile of Woodward, 11 mile just east of Main in Royal Oak. I've been trying to get my $100 miata back together so I can go out and cruise. Initial goal was going to be to have my Courier running for the dream cruise, would still love to have it out this year.

Send a PM if/when you're out and about in the area, i'd be happy to park and hangout for a while.
