    Hello,
    I will be in Michigan the week of August 12th, including the weekend.

    Will there be any Buick-related activities during Woodward?
    Anything particular I should not miss during Buicks on the Bricks on August 17th?

    Any suggestion is welcome.

    Thanks, Ralf

    No admission other than having a Classic Buick to arrive in.
    Failing to have a classic Buick to arrive in your welcome to come and stroll water street and the ajoining parking lots. May if you wish cross over the bridge and walk Saginaw Street and see the hundreds of Non and a few Buicks even parked there. There are lots off Saginaw street with displays of Model A and T Ford era cars, other lots will have Gassers and dragesters on display also.
    It is a free week end for those displaying and viewing some fine classic cars and trucks.

    Well, my GS was not allowed as second piece of luggage, so it had to stay in Germany. My rental (Chevy Tahoe) is US-made and GM, though. I hope that qualifies as well.
    Thanks for the reply!

    You will have to park the Tahoe in one of the spectator lots.

    Stop by and say hi when you get on water street. If we are not with the car check back a couple times. I take pictures.

    6AD10033-A056-4F45-B137-B8906FF8BC03.jpeg Hi Al, sorry I missed you. I was looking at the windows signs of the cars, but couldn’t find one saying “owner Al .....” Where did you display your car? Right on Water Street, or in the parking lot?
    Well, I was able to meet “Wally pep”,who restored the GS I bought last year, about 10 years ago. Today he displayed his red 455 in that parking lot. A very nice guy!
    Overall, it was a very nice event and I was surprised how many cars have been displayed and how many spectators visited, in particular with Woodward Dream Cruise on the same day.
    I attach one picture for the “big car fans”
