This is the first time the national convention has been in Michigan which seems odd but exciting because the Model A was born here.
Henry Ford helped build Michigan. He was responsible for the railroad build out from Detroit to Marquette. He had numerous factories in the Upper Peninsula. Henry Ford would spend a lot of time in the Upper Peninsula especially in Big Bay.
The famous Woodie was made in Kingsford from hard woods here in the Upper Peninsula.
Numerous seminars will be held during the convention and locals are encouraged to get the $80 family membership and participate in the interesting seminars. Even if you love Chevy’s or Dodge cars, you’ll learn from these informative seminars.
