Ten Days of Packard

Please mark your calendar for The Third Annual “Ten Days of Packard” (TDOP), being held from Friday, August 14 to Sunday, August 23, 2020!

As you may recall, the Ten Days of Packard is essentially a do-it-yourself event.  The purpose is to get your car out, whether it is to a local park, a favorite hangout or place in your town, the Packard Proving Grounds, the Packard Plant, a drive-in movie theater, or just go for a ride.  If you look in the current July-August issue of The Packard Digest, you will see some examples from previous years.

The Packards always draw a thumbs-up, smiles, and you may have to explain that Packard was not part of General Motors.  We are hoping for a really big turnout this year, as there are numerous reports of Packards getting restless from the stay-at-home orders that have resulted in them being stuck in garages and storage facilities — and their owners are restless too!

We plan to feature many pictures on the MCP Facebook page, as well as a bit later on the MCP Website and then in an issue of The Packard Digest.  So why not do your car a favor, yourself a favor, and the world a favor, and drive your car anywhere you want, take a picture, and send it with a description of your car and where the photo was taken to our Executive Director, Kevin Luedtke .

Located at 801 Kirk Profit Drive, Ypsilanti Michigan. Get up close to an amazing array of rare classic cars, selected by invitation only, and historic aircraft all on display together on the tarmac.
