  1. Hey guys I’m in Flint Michigan for the CANUSA games.
    Both my daughters are participating on the girls basketball team.

    What’s to do in this great city basically got the whole day tomorrow to explore anything car based to do in this historic car town.

    Getting food and watching a movie tonight as tomorrow’s an early start .

    Fuel to burn

    Don't drink the water.

    If any of the old GM plants are still standing take some pics and post them up.

    Hey, part of the old Dort plant is still there and the office building across the street is where the beginnings of GM started by Billy Durant.

    As I recall there are two good museums there the Sloan museum and across the parking lot there was a Buick Gallery and research center [that was four years ago] according to Google it's called the Perry Archives. The trip to Frankenmuth well worth it

    The Back to the Bricks show is running now in downtown flint and I’ll add a second to the Sloan museum. For food the Black Rock in Davison was great if you are carnivores. Went there recently picking up another 389 Pontiac. Good luck! Randy

  17. Wow, Back to the Bricks sounds like good timing for you. Want to be close to take in your girls games, but still check out the hot rod scene in the off time.
    We traveled lots when my boys played basketball and soccer, and we sometimes had time to check out the local shops or quick garage tour.

    Flint is a shithole. I lived there for about 6 months, which was 5 months and 29 days too long. I tried to find something good about Flint. I tried soooo hard. Something. Anything. NOTHING. Everything sucked. Restaurants. Bars. No sights to see. Something to do? Leave. You'll be much happier.
