Here is a link to what pics i took. its hard to think about taking pics, when you walk into the first room your brain goes into overload. and there are 2 more rooms to follow! all the pics were taken from my cell phone. I also got a walk around video. I'll get that posted here later.

Good to meet the guys from Chicago. didn't do much talking before i had to go but im glad you could make the drive. I'm sure you don't regret it! It was also nice to see you again Ike. Its been a few years.

Im going to have to set something up for this again next year as a corvette forum event and invite the whole great lakes section!

today was an absolutely awesome day. the lingenfelter collection was absolutely amazing and the curator was very nice and knowledgeable. we saw an amazing bunch of cars... about 150 total w/ 1/3 vettes, 1/3 muscle cars and 1/3 exotics. as for vettes, there was a 1953, a zora racing prototype, various 1st, 2nd, and 3rd gen vettes, not many 4th gen vettes except for the grand sport, many callaway vettes, and a pratt and miller c6r. the exotics were the most jaw dropping. we saw a veyron, mercedes slr, saleen s7, lamborghini reventon, lamboghini superlegerra, ferrari enzo, ferrari f40 (just to name a few cars from the amazing collection)... the curator was nice enough to fire up the enzo once the crowd died down... it was amazingly loud at idle... and then he revved it and it sounded totally evil!

thank you NassauCoupe99... next time we will bear in mind that Michigan is not on central standard time. we had a fun drive there and back. here is a shot of me driving home:

Scott: This was a very neat trip! Haven't had much car time last two years and was super glad you let us tag along! Highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys cars of faster variety! Very well run operation.
thanks again ike
