Detroit Autorama...Who's Going? Who's Showing? and Where are you staying??

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by BloodyKnuckles, Feb 12, 2008.

  1. Just curious on who's going to the show, who's showing and who's staying at what hotels?

    4 of us from our club are bringing one of our club member's Model "A" for it's debut. The car was just completed by our dear friend Sean Vesely who just passed away this past weekend. Sean and Dustin (the owner) had plans on making the trip together and with the unfortunate turn of events the car will still make it and will be dedicated to the talented and our well loved, fellow hot rodder.

    This will be our first time at this show and are very excited. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    First let me offer my/our condolences for the passing of your friend Sean Vesely, how wonderful that you are still showing the car which he just completed.
    We Slick50 (Ken) and I staying at the Sheraton right next door to the Cobo Center.
    This is our first time going so are not experts however have you seen the post for the GM Heritage Tour being organized by Bob K on Friday, 3/7? Bob just organized a second group and the sign-up is still open if you are interested, just search on GM Heritage or posts by Bob K within the past week.
    Also there will be a HAMB meet and great at some point which is posted on the board somewhere right now I can't remember all the details on that.
    Will you have the car upstairs at the Autorama or downstairs?
    We will definitely look you up at the show if we do not see you prior.

  4. His car will be upstairs. We'll have to hook up while we're there.

    Hotrodladycrusr, is that an invite?

    I will be there, as a basement dweller, set up with the "Nightmares" car club. Look for the "East Side" 55 Chevy truck... or for me, I am not too hard to miss.
    I am staying in Flint, in my own bed, I will commute the 60 +/- miles, to save a buck or two.

    Me and Slowandlow63 need a place to crash. we were gonna sleep in th van, but then we realized that it's detroit, and winter. Any cheap hotels around the area? Preferably where you don't have to pay by the hour?

    There are ALOT of cool options in the downtown area all within walking distance of the Omni. Anything in Greektown is good or in the GM Building, AKA: Renaissance Center.

    If you really want to treat your wife to an AWESOME meal and view, the top of the GM Building is not to be missed. I think it's about 70 floors up. Spectular views. The elavator ride is wonderful just in itself. The resturant on the top is called Coach Ensigna. You must make reservations or you will not get a table. Ask specificly for table 20, it has the best view in my opinion but plan on dropping two large ones for dinner and desert and drinks for two people.
