    Great event. Beautiful cars, great ambiance and great company. It is always nice to meet friendly faces around the same hobby. Very worth repeating in the future.

  • Thomas N.

    I am shooting for 5pm. another thing is parking...there are lots of parking structures in Ann Arbor. The best one for this event is on 4th and Williams st. just off main st. this structure also has a great panoramic view of A2 and Michigan stadium! for the view park on the top deck and take the elevator down.

    hi guys,just a couple dayz until this event.This will be my 4th year shooting this,
    in saying that it starts at 2pm but doesn't get "rolling" until 4ish.
    Im thinking we should all gather at 4pm at Starbucks on main st and liberty st. and head out from there as a group or split up and work as teams to get great images.
    Jack could go with one group and I could go with the other.
    The focus of this meet up is to capture what the car designer was going for when designing the car as art.
    That means details in the hood ornaments,wheels,body molding and chrome.
    I used to work as a buyer in automotive production and design manufacturing and can help a bit with what to look for.
    Pleas try not to touch the cars and be respectful to the cars owners.
    lets pick a time to meet after and possibly get a bite to eat and discus the event at my buddy's place BLIMPY BURGERS!

    thanx fellow photogs and I'm looking forward to another awesome MPA meet up!
