Thumbs up Michigan Gumball Rally

I know that this is not an off-roading/wheeling -based event, but being auto related I thought that some of you might be interested.

I am not affiliated with the organizers, just going to be participating.



Here is a link to their site:
http://www.michigangumball.com/

I am going to be rocking my 1967 Ford Galaxie. It is by no means a show car, there are some who think that it is not going to make it. This kind of thing generally seems to draw more tuner-ish types, but there was a rubicon signed up last time I checked.

Not gonna lie... I literally nodded off to that video. Hopefully you guys have someone better in charge of the video for this year. From what I could see it was just a bunch of rich guys on a leisurely road trip through Michigan. Nothing exciting at all.

They drove through Kalamazoo a few years ago. Kalamazoo and Portage PD came out in force, had cops every couple hundred feet all the way through town. lol. The show the cops put on was way more impressive than the rest of the event.

They say that they don't promote speeding...

there is no incentive to being the first one to the check points.
I have talked to the main fella a couple of times. We will be staying at Firekeepers the first night and Kewadin the second.

There are other videos if you go to the site or just do a quick search on YouTube.

Here is what I am gonna be rollin' in:

And it is just a straight-6. So, I will not be winning any speed contests.

Just thought I would pass along the info.

That car is gone but I have my 1989 Taurus SHO that would be fun. At $1000 price of admission, I don't see it happening.
