Default Michigan Chapter meets in Auburn Hills, MI

Today more than 10 members of the Michigan Chapter met at the Walter P. Chrysler Museum in Auburn Hills, MI to attend Walt McCall's presentation, "An Illustrated History of Specialty Vehicles". We were treated to an informative presentation of the history of fire fighting apparatus and car based ambulances and funeral cars.

Three chapter coaches (all from Swartz Creek, MI) were in parked in front of the museum. Brady Smith's 1959 Superior Cadillac Crown Royale, Kevin Parkinson's 1972 S&S Cadillac Victoria, and Brad Ross' 1988 Superior Cadillac Sovereign Brougham.

We enjoyed lunch afterward at Applebee's.

I'm glad to see that even though I was unable to make the trip, that my car was present...
I only wish that I was there to carry home the plaque

Where's the McDonald hearse? Thanks for the pictures Kim and I think I saw my gas pump in there. Hope Brady didn't sell it to someone else.
Nice turnout!

The McDonald's hearse, Richard, was in the garage at home. Did not want to take it out in the snow and rain. Glad the picture link worked.
