Historic Old U.S. 27 Motor Tour
Returns to Greater Lansing Area – August 20!
LANSING, Mich.--The Greater Lansing Convention and Visitors Bureau (GLCVB) is pleased to announce that Michigan’s Capital Region will be a key stop for one of the premier automotive events in the State for 2014 – The Historic Old U.S. 27 Motor Tour.
Beginning August 18, 2014, this five-day motor tour will kick off in Auburn, Indiana and head all the way up to scenic Cheboygan along historic U.S. 27. The theme of the event is to re-live the good old days of scenic summer vacation trips up north in the family cruiser. Classic cars participating in the tour will be on display at each tour stop. Downtown DeWitt, near Old 27, is the host location for the motor tour’s passage through the mid-Michigan area. The public is welcome to view the vintage automobiles in downtown DeWitt just off Old 27 from 4:30 – 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, August 20, 2014. Area auto-enthusiasts may also register their classic car at this Lansing-area stop, and join the tour for just $15!
“This is going to be a great event full of classic old-time nostalgia,” said Craig Parrish, event coordinator for the Old Historic U.S. 27 Motor Tour. “Michigan’s automotive heritage is so important to its residents, and that is most certainly the case in the home of Oldsmobile, Greater Lansing, Michigan.”
In addition to the car show there will be a live DJ, numerous food vendors and much more.
