18th Annual GTO Classic Weekend
Great Lakes GTOAA Regional Meet
August 15, 2008 through August 17, 2008


The Woodward GTO Tigers, would like to take this time to announce the 18th Annual GTO Classic Weekend, A GTOAA Regional Meet. It will be held in Pontiac, Michigan.

This is a Popular Vote show open to all owners of GTO’s and GT-37’s (GTO's: 1964-2006). You will not need to be a member of the GTOAA or the Woodward GTO Tigers to enter.

Come spend Friday, Saturday and Sunday, or all week long if you want. Its Woodward Dream Cruise week and the Woodward GTO Tigers Classic Weekend. If you have not experienced it there is just no way to describe it other than it is like a step back in time, to the ‘50’s and ‘60’s. There is something in the air that sets the mood for those good ole days. Cruising starts at least the week before and the crescendo builds throughout the week.

The Venue and Host Hotel for this event will be Marriott, Pontiac at Centerpoint. The Marriott is a full service Hotel with heated indoor and outdoor pool and whirlpool, a health club with lockers & sauna, outdoor garden fountain terrace, and a full service bar & lounge in a comfortable setting. The Parkway Grille is located in the hotel. Our overflow hotels are the  Courtyard by Marriott and the Residence Inn by Marriott across the street from the host hotel.  There are many restaurants within walking distance from the hotels.

To reserve your room for this event you may call 1-800-228-9290 or 1-248-253-9800 and ask for 18th Annual GTO Classic Weekend, using group code GTOGTOA. Or at their website Detroit Marriott Pontiac at Centerpoint. The rates for these rooms will be $99.00 + tax per night for the Marriott/Residence Inn and $89.00 + tax per night for the Courtyard.  These rates will be available for August 14-17th, 2008.

We plan on Cruising Woodward
Friday night for the “Kick Off, “ and then from 9:00pm to 11:00pm there will be a parking lot get together at the Marriott patio. Refreshments will be made available from the hotel for a moderate fee. If you are in the mood for extended hours stick with the Canadian gang.

Saturday, we will have a home parking area on Woodward during the Dream Cruise for a place to come and rest, watch the cars and hang out. It is the most cost effective site that we are able to procure. At present we are working on a food vendor for a luncheon at the parking site. Saturday night we will again gather in the hotel parking lot for another round of refreshments and camaraderie. It is our club’s 20th anniversary and we want to celebrate.

For show day on
Sunday we are not going to begin until 10:00am so that everyone may come out rested and relaxed. The “Marriott Chef “provides an excellent breakfast buffet. What a way to start the day!

The show will take on a different format this year in order that it may run smoothly. Registration will be from 10:00am till 12:00pm. There will be no classification. Show car parking will be on Center Point Drive like we have done in the past, but now you will be able to park next to your buddy. After registration closes and ALL cars are on the field, voting ballots will be passed out. This is a popular vote show with over 100 awards to be given out. Awards will be 90 embroidered polo style golf shirts and the Top 10 Awards will be embroidered jackets. Plus there will be other specialty awards. Vote counting will be done electronically courtesy of the Chicago Cruisn’Tigers GTO club. On the field, entertainment will be provided by Craig Parrish, organizer of the “Old 27 Tour”. Voting will end at 2:00pm.

Indoor entertainment will be provided by, none other, than the Vintage Voices of Marvin Minarich, at 2:30pm in one of the Marriott banquet rooms. Awards will be given at 3:00pm. WAIT, THAT’S NOT ALL! After the awards we will gather up the Goats and cruise to a local Sunday night Hot Spot for a bite to eat and even more fun.

Make your plans now for the Woodward GTO Classic Weekend Getaway. Remember special room rates will be available at the Marriott Hotel and their affiliates.

We’ll be “Setting the Pace for’08”!
