Started in 2005, the Spring Meet & Greet has become not only a tradition for members of the MiFbody.com website, but a tradition for members of the entire Michigan Camaro and Firebird enthusiast community. The show is meant to be a laid back, casual show to promote face-to-face interaction with Camaro and Firebird enthusiasts. Many of us know each other through the various large forums but we do not get a chance to meet in person and check out each other’s cars. The Meet & Greet was created to help create new friendships and new bonds.
In 2009, the informal BBQ was amped up into a full fledged car show. We switched locations from being held at local Metro Parks to Bakers of Milford. Known for their free weekly Sunday cruise-ins, Bakers of Milford was the perfect fit for our show. A great restaurant, clean restrooms, outdoor grill, and an open parking lot: all the makings for a perfect car show!
For 2018, we’re changing it up and moving our show to The HUB Stadium in Auburn Hills! Known for their “Bombowling” and Axe Throwing – The HUB Stadium is an awesome place to have a party! And what better place to have a Camaro and Firebird party than The HUB!
Since 2013, the Michigan FBody Meet & Greet has raised thousands of dollars for charities! Each year we select a worthy charity to focus our efforts on. We collect charity donations through judging class entries, donations, and raffles! We ask for a minimum $10 donation for anyone who wishes to have their vehicle judged. Donations can be made at the event. We plan to have multiple ways to donate towards the show’s charity while at our event, so bring your wallets and let’s support a great charity!
Food and Beverages:
Food and beverages will be available through the The HUB Stadium restaurant. They have a full sit-in restaurant available and will also be grilling hot dogs and hamburgers for those of us who don’t want to do a full sit-down meal. You’re welcome to bring your own food if you so choose and there’s fast-food options available across the street.
For 2019, we will not have pre-registration. You can register at the event if you would like to be judged. Otherwise, show and shine is free and no pre-registration is necessary!
General Plans for the Meet & Greet:
The Meet & Greet, as a tradition, is a casual meet up to hang out and have fun! The event’s host website (MiFbody.com) is always growing and there’s still a lot of names that we know from the community but we don’t have a face to place with the name. The Meet & Greet was created in 2005 to put faces to the user names on the site. The whole point is to meet new people, hang out, show off our own cars and check out each other’s cars! Over the years, we’ve grown to include the entire FBody community not only in Michigan but in neighboring states and Canada! Our goal is not directly meant to promote our website – but more to promote the FBody community as a whole and encourage the community to establish friendships with people in the area with the same passion for the cars we own! The Meet & Greet is MiFbody.com’s way to try and give back to the community by having a yearly show to look forward to.
