    Count me in. I'll be there this year.

    Details stolen from Patrick's Facebook page.

    Please join us for the 2nd annual Northern Michigan DeLorean Fall Driving Tour. A detailed itinerary will follow in the coming months, however the driving tour will include the following and more:

    -A drive on beautiful M-119, known as "The Tunnel of Trees", which features breathtaking scenery in the fall as the leaves change colors. This is a very curvy road along the coast of Lake Michigan's Little Traverse Bay and is an absolute blast to drive in a DeLorean. There are lots of spots to stop, shop, and take photos along the way.

    Here is a brief video showcasing some of the drive that a Corvette owner filmed a few years ago:

    We will be making a stop at Pond Hill Farm, which features a wonderful cafe as well as a winery and brewery.

    We will also be making a stop at Legs Inn, which was a crowd favorite on the drive last year.

    As far as overnight lodging, there are lots of hotels to choose from in the nearby Petoskey, Michigan area.

    Please keep an eye on this event for updates and more details in the coming months. We had 5 DeLoreans attend last year, so let's see if we can increase that for 2017!

    Shameless bump. I'm still planning to be there. Just requested a week off work and plan to make the drive.

    If I go, I think I'll drive and will bring my car on a trailer.

    I might also bring my kids; my 11 year-old is a big fan of Pat's car, I told her I'd bring her to an event to see it. She saw one of his Rico Suave' profile pics and asked me if he's a secret agent.
