Waterford, Michigan
10:00 am to 4:00 pm
Dust it off, Fire it up, & Hit the road!
Get your car ready for the MVVC Festival in a few weeks! Hosted at our shop in Waterford. It’s time to dust off our cars, change the battery (or reinstall it), pour in a few gallons of fresh gas, and fire it up. Plus it’s almost time for the 30th annual MVVC Festival!
The newest car in the Club is an antique, and they sit around a lot. Parts of them get a little crusty and cantankerous. A common phrase we hear is, “But I just flushed the brakes…five years ago!” As our cars and we grow older, we tend to remember things as if they happened just yesterday.
We will select cars for this clinic that are planning to attend the Festival and need a little help. Register now if you want your car checked out at this event. Cars will be serviced on a first-come, first-served basis. If your car isn’t road-ready, plan to come anyway and learn. We can help! RSVP at events@munks.com, or 248-335-5244
Munk’s is located on M-59 (Huron St.) between Telegraph Road & Elizabeth Lake Road. Click here for flyer

We will have a Slow Speed Slolom set up. We will have fun on a small timed course of cones that will average around 30mph and will show our driving skills, and will be a lot of fun for all. There will be a food vendor at the museum to provide a source for lunch.

After we have gotten the thrill of driving our fine German machines around the course we will return to the Hotel for a Pizza Party and Movie night
