On the long weekend of August 27-29, the Pierce-Arrow Museum at the Gilmore Car Museum in Hickory Corners, MI will again be a focal point of this annual Pierce-Arrow Society Meet. Our two full tour days will again 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, tour in and show our special vehicles to each other and to 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, good low traffic country roads, antique shops, lake and river waterfronts, private car collections, occasional boat rides & great food. If you haven’t yet been to the Gilmore Car Museum and your Pierce-Arrow Museum in Hickory Corners, MI, 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 NE of Kalamazoo, MI, 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 are about 100 miles each. Friday’s Tour will visit Holland on Lake Michigan with a car collection, a Holland Princess luncheon & boat ride plus a first-time visit to beautiful Nellis Dutch Village Park. A casual dinner will be near the hotel. Saturday’s Tour will visit two first-time car collections, the longest covered bridge in MI, and lunch along the way. The Saturday Banquet will be at the hotel.
The activities and meals are for Pierce-Arrow Society Members & Guests only, but the PAS Sunday Show Day for the Public is on the green in front of the Pierce-Arrow Museum. An awards luncheon will be in the Pierce-Arrow Museum building.
