Concours d’Lemons Michigan 2018
The Inn at St. John’s, Plymouth, in a corner of the parking lot near the dumpsters.
But hey at least we are on the property of a major concours. All of regular Concours d’Lemons hi-jinx will ensue, capricious judging, bribery, awful trophies and even worse cars. If you take yourself or your car very seriously, this isn’t the show for you. Hagerty Insurance has stepped in to add a shred of legitimacy to this farce so be sure to thank them for the laughs. DIYauto.com is also on board to help you fix your hooptie so you don’t have to call a tow truck. The best part is that the show is free for participants and spectators, so you’ll get exactly what you pay for. Spectator parking is at Northville High School 45700 Six Mile Rd, Northville, MI 48168 and shuttle buses will run all day long to the Inn at St. John’s. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/concours-dlemons-detroit-2018-tickets-39561180556/

Waterford Hills Road Racing. 4770 Waterford Road, Clarkston, MI 48346
Waterford Hills is on the grounds of the Oakland County Sportsmen’s Club. Turn into the parking lot, head towards the back of the grounds, pay $5 at the gate, and ask them to point you towards The Hill.
Line up as many vintage VWs as we can on The Hill, hang out, and watch an exciting day of road racing. Then drive your own car in parade laps on the track at lunchtime. Many car clubs have populated The Hill over the years, but this will be the first time the MVVC welcomes vintage VWs.
They race rain or shine.
