This was our third trip to see the Gilmore. We love to go there and wander the beautiful grounds. They are expanding at an amazing pace and every year there have been new buildings. This year the new one to us was the Cadillac building, designed to resemble a Cadillac dealership from the late 40's. There was also a Cadillac show going on just adjacent to the building which was very cool to see! Detroit 5th Gen Camaro Club holds this event every year and invites as many Camaros as they can, I counted 24 that came out and parked on the grounds within the museum. They were kind enough to give us free reign to move the cars around and get some fabulous pictures. The album contains some great shots of Helios posing and some pictures of our favorite exhibits. The entrance to the museum itself is now dedicated to muscle cars of the 60's/70's which is where my heart lies, we were very excited to see that as the main display walking in the door. Highly recommend a visit to this wonderful museum that traces the entire history of the automobile. I know we'll continue to go back again and again!
We have not been able to attend the Fall Classic since 2009 so we were so happy to be back this year!! North Eastern Ohio Camaro Club is our home away from home, they always take us in as one of their own at all the travel shows we attend. We had a great time and I sure hope it's not so long before we are back again. The show Saturday was very rainy and a bit chilly but it couldn't dampen the fun. Thank goodness Tom Henry set up a tent and tarp we could huddle under LOL. We then cruised in the pouring rain to MAP airplane museum for the dinner/live auction. The club put together a lovely tribute to Scott Settlemire who recently announced his retirement from GM. In particular the slide show of photos sent in by all of Scott's friends put together by club prez Morgan was a true labor of love. The dinner was excellent, the auction short but sweet. Of course Sunday it finally cleared up as we had to leave for home. We had such a good time, especially getting to do a little more checking out of the 6th gen. Thanks so much NEOCC, Morgan & Cindy for your hospitality and a great event!
