While not all of us got the memo that deleted meeting at Canterbury Village, those that did show up enjoyed the hot cider and donuts.
Official start of the cruise became Neal Porter’s collection. Mr. Porter took the time to give a short history / report on each car in the building. Quite a diverse group of cars, from a ’37 Packard that two sailors on 30 leave bought in New York, to a ’53 Buick Skylark Sports convertible that was part of the General Motors “Promise of Tomorrow”, to a Dual Ghia that Chrysler should have produced, but ended as a private deal with the Italian firm. With a Boss 302, a Canadian Ford, and several other cars in between.
The cruise continued following the maps supplied by our coordinator, Mike Nyberg, there is an unconfirmed report of one member who refused to believe it was raining and made the journey to Greg’s Restaurant with the top down.
It has been confirmed that the ribs were good and the onion rings, huge. Those that went agreed it was an excellent event, in spite any complications.
This snake event wasn’t even on our calendar of events, but then Jeff Grice, president of the Great Lakes Cobra Club, invited us to join them in a joint car show along with the Viper Club for the Grand Re-Opening of the Southfield Dealers Body Shop.
Several Shelby Club members attended, taking advantage of the refreshments and enjoying the music provided by the DJ.

We at SAAC-MCR have had the use of Gorno Ford’s facilities to hold swap meets for the last 37 years. In recognition of that, John Yarema and Craig Shefferly present an official SAAC-MCR clock to Ms. Cindy Gorno-Czarnik so, hopefully our friends at Gorno Ford won’t forget us.
