Gilmore Museum Event


Had a nice turnout on a nice September Day

Gilmore Museum IMG_1315-group W Mk IV

  • Saturday, September 30
    • Come join us at one of the premier automotive themed museums in the country! Located in the rolling countryside of Hickory Corners, the huge museum complex includes many buildings, a number that are marque specific & several designed in the theme of an era specific dealership. New museums & displays are being created all the time, so if you’ve been there before you’ll see some familiar friends & new ones too!  Selecting a location on the west side hopefully enables those not in the SE MI area to meet with us, & encourages Team Shelby – Great Lakes Region members on the west side & neighboring states to meet with their Motor City Chapter brethren!  For those traveling from the Detroit metro area, we will pick a meet up location – somewhere west of Ann Arbor off I-94, & time (likely 9:30AM?) – both to be identified later.For those traveling from other directions or solo, target is to arrive at Gilmore by 11:30AM.More details to follow.Please use the “Going” feature on the club Facebook page so we can get an idea of how many people to expect.
    • We will have special parking inside the complex on the museum grounds, so you won’t have to worry about pedestrian parking door dings! We will be parking as a group on the grassy center court of the museum grounds, & add eye candy for other visitors to the museum!!
    • Admission is $11/adult (regular admission is $13)!
    • We will have a limited number of door prizes to share with lucky participants!




Mustang Man – Giuliano Zuccato


UPDATE:  On January 14, 2017, Giuliano was diagnosed with glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer  (see Wikipedia for more info on the disease).  Treatment is underway.  This is another of life challenges that he is faced with – please pray for him! 

On December 1, 2016, we were treated to a return visit by Giuliano Zuccato, one of the sculptors on the original Mustang.  In addition to sharing the inside story of working on the first Mustang with the Heros of History, & his total career in the automotive industry, almost more important was the challenges in life he overcame & his giving back to the country that made it all possible.  We were also joined be members of the Mid-Michigan Mustang club that drove down from Frankenmuth, as well as Jason from Team Shelby.  If you ever get a chance to listen to Giuliano’s story, don’t pass it up!

Show & Go 41 -Track (GO) Results

4 of the 5 New Generation GT350’s showed what they’re made of at the track!

Monday June 13, 2016, the day following the Show, was the Go at Waterford Hills Road Racing Course.  A mild day made for good track time, with a few sprinkles briefly mid day that scared away a few participants.  However, we had an astonishing 5 new GT350’s attend the event – 1 GT350R & 4 street GT350’s of various flavors.  That’s a full 25% of the total participants were new GT350’s – living up to their heritage & intended purpose!!!!!!!!
