On the long weekend of August 27-29, the Pierce-Arrow Museum at the Gilmore Car Museum in Hickory Corners, Michigan will again be a focal point of this annual Pierce-Arrow Society Meet. Our two full tour days will have new sights to enjoy, but we’ll also enjoy favorite spots from earlier years. Join fellow Pierce-Arrow Society members ‘Gathering at Gilmore’ to celebrate, socialize, show and tour in our special vehicles and share them with an interested public. Bring your Pierce, ride along, or drive modern, but come have fun…and Ice Cream!
The West Michigan area offers a blend of country scenery, rich history, quaint villages, low traffic country roads, antique shops, beautiful lake and river waterfronts, private car collections, boat rides & great food. If you haven’t been to the Gilmore Car Museum and your Pierce-Arrow Museum in Hickory Corners, this is an opportunity to visit the best automotive museum complex in the world. CCCA, Cadillac, Franklin, Ford Model A and Lincoln clubs also have their museums here with over 400 vehicles on display on beautiful park-like grounds. Gilmore is just Northeast of Kalamazoo only 13 miles off both I-94 and I-131.
Earlybirds will enjoy a delicious event Thursday evening in Plainwell. Friday and Saturday’s driving tours will be about 110 miles each. Friday’s Tour will visit Holland on Lake Michigan with a car collection, a Holland Princess boat ride and luncheon plus a first-time visit to beautiful Nelis Dutch Village Park. Enjoy a casual Dinner near the hotel. Saturday’s Tour will visit two first-time car collections, the longest covered bridge in Michigan, and enjoy lunch along the way. The Saturday Banquet will be at the Comfort Inn.
While the activities and meals are for Pierce-Arrow Society members & guests, the PAS Sunday Show Day is for the public on the green in front of the Pierce-Arrow Museum. After the awards, box lunches will be served. We’ll have ‘drive & ride’ Pierce experiences and a walkabout of the fabulous Gilmore Museum campus.
Come enjoy the people, scenery, history, car collections, antiques, shops, food, wineries & many fabulous vehicles. Room reservations can be made now ~ deadline is July 23! Registration Forms will be in a PAS mailing soon.
