LANSING, Mich.- The Greater Lansing Convention and Visitors Bureau (GLCVB) is pleased to announce that Michigan's Capital Region will be a key stop for one of the premier automotive events in the State for 2010 - The Old Historic U.S. 27 Motor Tour.

Beginning August 24, 2010, this five-day motor tour will kick off in Auburn, Indiana and head all the way up to Cheboygan, Michigan along historic U.S. 27. The theme of the event is to re-live the good old days of scenic summer vacation trips up north in the family cruiser. Classic cars participating in the tour will be on display at each tour stop. Eastwood Towne Center is the host location for the motor tour's passage through the mid-Michigan area. The public is welcome to view the vintage automobiles at Eastwood Towne Center from 4:30 - 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, August 25, 2010. Area auto-enthusiasts may also register their classic car at the Lansing stop, and join the tour for just $15!

"This is going to be a great event full of classic old-time nostalgia," said Craig Parrish, event coordinator for the Old Historic U.S. 27 Motor Tour. "We are particularly excited for the announcement that will be made Thursday morning. It will have a significant impact on the motor tour as well as the mid-Michigan region."

As the participants gather from 7:30 - 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, August 26th to travel to their next destination on the tour, Representative Joan Bauer will be on hand with a surprise announcement. Participants will rally in the parking lot of the Meijer store in DeWitt located on Old 27. Media is encouraged to attend as the announcement will have significant impact on the mid-Michigan region.
