This looks like an interesting event on Woodward. I have parked at Memorial Park before during Woodward. Lots of great places to eat within walking distance for sure.

So what events are planned during this get together? Show and shine? Judging? Guest speaks or tech how-tos? Aftermarket vendors and swap meet area? The website I looked at was a little vague. It just gave hotel info. I see there will be a DJ at least.

I have never been so I do not know what to expect in terms of entertainment and things to do. From the looks of it there will be a lot of people and cars here. .

I hope this show does well. W-bodies have always had some good styling. I am sucker for the Olds convertibles. Besides being a vert, I like the way the three light headlight arrangement looks and how the hood completes the look so well. I've often wondered what that head light set up would look like on an old 30s street rod.

Expect some of the usual spring time pot hole patches but nothing too serious. Memorial Park is essentially surrounded on three sides by Woodward Ave (M-1), Coolidge Highway, and 13 Mile Road. These are major roads and should be in decent repair since they carry a lot of traffic. I would expect the neighborhood side streets like Edgar, Ravena, and Start to be in worse shape. I've always entered the park from Coolidge side. The spectator parking is also from the Coolidge side as well.




Give yourself enough room on the coil overs for a typical city street, that's my recommendation. You can tighten them down the coil overs if you are going up and down Woodward only or the expressways.

I plan on putting coil overs on my Cutlass convertible for this show. The roads over that way aren't that bad at all. Typically spring type pot holes and such. Woodward is a major throughfare and it kept up very nice.

Looks like a lot of people from all over will be atteding this meet. I really like the convertibles as well. Not a lot of them made and not a lot left. Makes for finding convertible specific parts hard. I have managed and made a lot of the stuff myself from over convertibles. Like J and F body parts I have found.

I like verts, part of me wants a convertible but living in FL, the Irish skin half of me says the other is an idiot.

We're still waiting for the first semi-nice day. We have not had a day much over 50 yet. Winter keeps trying to hang on here. Sadly, the first local spring cruise is next Saturday too. I am afraid it might be a wash out. Weather forecast says our first 60 degree day will be Tuesday - with rain.
