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 3:30 - 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday August
19, 2009. 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 just a great event full of classic old-time nostalgia," said Craig Parrish, Event
Coordinator for the Old Historic U.S. 27 Motor Tour. "We'll be hitting several delightful towns in
five fun-filled days with hundreds of classic cars to please auto-enthusiasts of every age."
