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!!!!!!!!
180 cars represented 45 of 50 possible classes of Ford powered vehicles, & 300 spectators, with absolutely perfect weather on June 12, 2016 for our 41st annual Show at Ford World Headquarters (the “Green House”).
We had a record of 10 sponsors for Best of Show awards this year, with representatives from 4 of the sponsors to help select & present their awards to the recipients. We’d like to thank the sponsors & congratulate the winners represented in the list below (to be added soon).

Thanks to everyone who came out from Klassic Haulers truck club & Shelby American Automobile Club – Motor City Region (SAAC-MCR) for a “meet & greet” at MRT, hosted by Scott Hoag. We had 45 people show up, & after a brief meeting by Klassic Haulers, SAAC-MCR’s Mark Kulwik discussed our upcoming Show & Go 41 & invited their members to attend. The evening ended with a detailed tour of MRT’s facilities & description of their businees model by Scott.
As both a former member of Klassic Haulers in the late 70′ – early 80’s, also serving as their newsletter editor for two years, & current President of SAAC-MCR, I was happy to see the two clubs come together & see some old friends!
Many thanks to Richard Teeple for arranging the event & providing the food & drinks (& cookies too!). Hope we will see many classic trucks at our show on June 12th!
