PAST EVENTS

NIAHC Tour May 13th, 

Auburn, Cord, Duesenburg Museum

Great day at the Auburn Cord Dusenberg Museum!

We had great weather and turnout for this event which was enjoyed by all! 21 members attended and toured the museum for 2-1/2 hours. This Art Deco era museum is spectacular. What an incredible collection of rare cars are housed in this gem of a museum. The tour was followed by lunch at the Italian Grill which turned out to be a great choice. Many thanks to Jon Bill for hosting this event and his expert guidance through the museum!

Next stop Chill Hill Winery in Baroda, Michigan. They had a great sampling of Wines and Hard Ciders all with a Chill atmosphere and a beach good vibe!

Off to Benton Harbor along RED Arrow Highway to Vineyard 2121 This winery was Fantastic! for only being 6 years old. We had a very relaxing Churcuterie Experience, of Meats, Cheese Fruits, Pickles, Olives and Breads. As Pete would say "It was "OFF THE HOOK" not to mention some of the best wine in Southwest Michigan.

After hour and a half or so  at VY2121 we head to our Hotel. But along the way Yep, flat tire on the side off the road. Jack Overley got into a roofing nail and these guys Lou, Mark and Jack had it changed and back on the road in 7 minutes. NICE JOB!
