I had been kicking around the idea of trying to bring Michigan guys together the just like the Colorado guys did. When Al started this thread we exchanged a few PM’s, found out we’re practically neighbors, then decided to call ourselves a club and see what happens.

 

So I guess you can say this is the official launch of the Michigan Flat Fender Club.

 

There are no dues and membership is not limited to 2A’s or even CJ’s; if it’s a jeep it’s all good. Heck you don’t even need to be a jeep owner to join… Just need to have an interest in old jeeps. 

 

For now this thread will be our club house, so to speak. Introductions, planning get togethers, etc, will all happen here.

 

I’ll also try to maintain an email list. So send me a PM with your email address. That way you don’t have to monitor this thread constantly, to learn when guys are going to meet and where.

 

Scott

What the heck I'll join. Big smile They let me in the Colorado club for a while as my daughter lives out there. We have vacationed in Michigan a few times..Nordhouse and Sleeping Bear Dunes, Makinac Island, and up at Pictured Rocks. Found some Petosky stones. Beautiful state.

Hey Tom we'll let you know when something comes together, when the weather gets a little warmer.
 
My grandparents had a cabin in Harrison about 35-40 years ago. I can barely remember it as I was fairly young when they sold it. I do remember running trails near the cabin, with my dad in a Dune buggy he had.
 
Last time I was in Harrison was for the Mushroom Festival. Does that still go on?

Hi Scott,
   No, the mushroom festival is no longer held.  With the lack of forest fires, the acidity went out of the soil and there went the mushrooms.
   I've been here since 1947, when we bought our new CJ-2A in Harrison.  The guy had two, kept one for himself and we bought the other one, Luzon Red with creme wheels.

I'll throw my hat in the ring... I have actually stopped to look at Al's '49 when it was parked in his front yard lol... I used to have a picture of it.  He wasn't home the day I stopped.

Ok fellas here are an idea for the very first get together.

 

Saturday May 9th in Durand. Durand is right on I-69 about 15 miles west of Flint and about 30 miles east of Lansing. http://www.mapquest.com/maps?city=Durand+&state=MI" rel="nofollow - http://www.mapquest.com/maps?city=Durand+&state=MI

 

From there we’ll do a leisurely country drive to the Steam Railroading Institute in Owosso, (Al’s idea) about 10 miles away.

http://www.mstrp.com/" rel="nofollow - http://www.mstrp.com

 

Of course can’t get guys together without eating so we’ll plan a stop to eat as well.

 

We’ll pin down specifics once people have a chance to weigh in on the topic.

 

Your thoughts?

Thats would be fine starting from the depot. I would still like to meet with everyone "FIRST" at WENDYS though. It would make it easier for people not familiar with the area.
And yes the sideroads at first would be better so we could stay away from the interstate ramp "idiots at the exit.
 
ANY OTHER TAKERS YET??? How about it guys? Lets get some responses! Dont ya wanna come out and play?

If it is trailer parking someone needs, I may be able to arrange parking either at my house in Owosso, or at my parents house about 4 miles north of Durand.  There are also a couple vacant areas you could get away with it for a day (there is an old empty gym behind Subway right off the Durand exit where your vehicle wouldn't be bothered).

I just used the Durand Depot as a starting point because it was suggested in PM to me, and it was an easy address to find.  Wendy's right off the exit also would be a good spot to start, and I believe they have truck parking there as well.  They used to anyway.

If we meet near the Depot (in the park, across the tracks, where Railroad Days is held) There is plenty of parking even for guys that trailer. We still would have use of the facilities (bathroom) at the Depot too.

I am not sure where you are talking about.  There is a parking lot across the tracks, by the clock tower, but there definitely is not room for trailer parking there.  There is a vacant grassy lot near it (just east of it), but that is not an official park to my knowledge.

In the image below, green is the parking by the clock tower, pinkish is parking for the dance studio I believe, and red is the vacant lot where a bunch of RR days activities are set up.

Chances are we may not be able to park there depending on when the carnival starts rolling in, usually they arrive the weekend before and start setting up Monday - Thursday.  May 9th is the weekend before RR days.

Ahh, then maybe we should go with Al's idea and meet at Wendy's. In the past I've seen semi's park over night on the dead end road right behind Wendy's, so guys that trailer could park their???

Yeah, you can forget any parking close to the depot that weekend before the Railroad Days festival. That grass area you mentioned is city property, and would probably get a ticket. Ill check with a local cop I know. Any other weekends parking at the depot wouldnt be a problem with trailers. Wendys is still the best bet. There is also a area behind Wendys that people could park trailers. Local semi drivers use it also.
 
For those not familiar with the Durand area,its a VERY safe place with VERY little crime. A typical small town. So people shouldnt worry about leaving their tow vehicles while we take a ride/etc.
We should forget the downtown parking idea alltogether. Its just too close like you said with the logistics set-up with the festival the following weekend.
 
If need be we can park vehicles at my place if we get in a pinch. I have a circle drive, so shouldnt be a problem getting in and out. Not worried about the grass.

I wish it wasn't so dang cold and rainy that day.  A drive on a day like yesterday would have been nice.  I haven't hardly touched mine lately - and that is odd for me, usually I drive it almost every day.

Just been too damn busy to do ANYTHING with jeeps Unhappy

Maybe we should plan to do the Woodward Dream Cruise. Wouldn't we just fit right in with all the fancy hotrods. Tongue

Scott,
 
Not sure how the Chrysler museum is doing this year, but typically every summer they have cruise night on Thursdays. Each week is a different featured make. One of them is Jeep. Maybe something to consider.
 
As for the Woodward Cruise, a 2A is the best. Put it in first, let the clutch out and just lope along.
 
Bill

IMO Flint Back to the Bricks is a MUCH better show then Woodward.  I went to Woodward for a few years and the amount of people make it miserable, and all you do is sit and idle in traffic if your cruising.  Back to the Bricks, the whole downtown, side streets and parking lots are parked cars (like a real show) plus you have large vendors etc... there.  This year there is a cruise from Flint to The Woodward cruise area going on all weekend as they are working together from the sounds of it now.

You just don't have the idiots killing spectators and worry about your car getting smashed when another idiot loses it doing a burnout.

IIRC every week the Flushing A&W does a car show, as well as possibly the new Sonic?

Summer shows also  include the Corunna 4th of July Car Show; the New Lothrop Car
Show in July, the Lennon Homecoming Car Show in July and the End of summer
Cruisin’ in Durand on Labor Day Weekend.

Bill, excellent idea. Checked the museum web site and Thursday Cruise nights start June 11. Although did not find anything about specific dates for featured makes.

Jake, just kidding about Woodward. Got my fill of that, cruising Gratiot and Telegraph as a kid. Same story back then... Idleing in traffic but thats what we wanted when crusing was about chasing girls. Since I don't chase girls anymore, cursing like that has no appeal to me.

Back to the bricks is a good one but thats later in the summer.

I really would like to see what it would take to get a club spot at Back to the Bricks.  I believe I was the only flatfender there last year (Maybe one other)

It was an outstanding show.  My favorites were the gassers and rat rods though.

Guys,
Lew Ladwig here, I started the CFFC a few years ago.  I was looking for fellow jeep nuts who were not just hard core rock crawlers but guys with older flatties that enjoyed playing and showing them.  I have decided to start the IFFC and extend the range of the club.  The International Flat Fender Club will be made up of Patrols of smaller clubs from around the world.  I would like to have the Michigan Flat Fender Club be a founding member of the IFFC!  This is a no fee, no dues deal just like the CFFC.  We will use the internet to lay out events that folks can join in on.
What do you think?  So far we have about 4 possible patrols and the list is growing.  I might try to find someone to build a web site but I don't want to have to spend $ to make it happen.  Like I said, it should be a no cost deal.
Happy jeeping!

Lew sorry I didn't see your post sooner. Don't check this page as often as I should.
 
What your proposing sounds great. I say count us in.
 
I should also take a moment to say thank you. Lurking on the threads you guys had regarding get togethers was the inspriation to get something going here. In other words, looked like you guys were having fun. Wink 
 
So far we have about 16 people that asked to be put on an email list and be notified of get togethers. As far as gatherings go we're off to a slow start with attendance not as good as I expected, hopefully that will change in the near future. I've often thought our own web site would be very benifical to reaching flat fender owners in MI and organizing events but it's like you said, would like to keep this a no cost deal.
 
If you need any more info or you wish to discuss this further I can send you a PM with my email address.
 
Scott

  Scott, don't be discouraged by a seemingly small turnout. There are always more that "want to" than there are that actually show, for one reason or another. Take you small group & go!  These outings can be a lot of fun!   BW

same thing I'm working on! My family has a cabin just south of TC so I will have to let you know when I'm up there buzzing around, when ever I get this thing on the road!

I check in from time to time, but my Willy's isn't anywhere close to stock.  It looks close from 50' though.


I should update it's build thread...

Hey guys,

I just moved to Pontiac, MI from Virginia.  Are any other flat fender owners in SE Michigan interested in doing a driving tour some weekend this summer in the countryside? I'm not too familiar with the area so I can't offer any routes or destinations.  If anyone has any suggestions, please post them! I look forward to meeting some of you!

That would be a great first ride!  I put my CJ on the back burner while I rebuild this 50 pickup.  I hope to have that on the road in the summer...

I will be ready in a month or so if anyone is still interested in a club.

I'm about 10 minutes from the Michigan border and would attend some of the club events. There's a Hoosierwillys club as well. Bundy Hill would be a great place to do some light offroad (pretty open area, it's used as a gravel pit).

Maybe in the spring or summer of  2018 we can plan a dirt road ride out of Clarkston and run out to Fenton or Holly or Ortonville. I run the the dirt roads here on nice days in the summer quite often. Check out Rattalee Lake Rd.. That's a favorite of mine. There's some good restaurants too.

                 I've got a good feeling 2018's going to be a banner year for flatfenders in mi.(I've got high hopes anyhow, got some catching up to do). In the Grand Rapids area there is at least 5 flatfenders on this site all will be celebrating their jeep's 70th birthday in 2018. Clarkston just a hop, skip, and a jump from G.R. so count me in for a get together. The back roads along the Grand River to Grand Haven is one of my favorites rides, also there is little known antique car show at Millenium Park in early June that I'm sure are jeeps would be welcomed. About a 1 1/2 mi. from my house. Joe Wadoyado       drm 101 thought you where talking about Clarksville Mi. A bit farther than a hop, skip, and a jump but the rest of the post still applies. Joe

Joe - the summer of 2018 sounds like a reasonable plan to me. We will cruse!

OK, it's the summer of 2018. We could just play it by ear and do a few late afternoon Saturday rides if the weather is good. We have a grass 1 acre lot behind the house for parking, a Frosty Freeze 1/2 mile away and many dirt roads. Sometime this summer they will open this offroad facility next to Mt Holly that might also be an opportunity since it's close. There's also Holly Recreation State park and Groveland Oaks if someone wants to camp. If you camp there, and stop by with a Willys (7515 Old Pond) I will be obligated to buy you an ice cream cone.

Several of us on the West side are ready for a ride. 

I'm hoping to set up a meet and greet at Fallasburg park sometime in August.

Do you guys know of an event called SnoBlind that’s held every February in/around West Branch? This year at least three of us from Ohio will be bringing 3 stockish flattys up.

I hear that the trails around West Branch are great. My neighbor goes up there every year in the summer. SnoBlind looks cool.

Hey guys.  This is Henry.  I just picked up a project MB that has hardly any original parts but should be a fun resto mod project.  I saw some guys headed up to Sno Blind last year and was wondering how it went.  We take a group of guys up to West Branch every February.  I'll post up when we are going as soon as we nail down a date and if anyone would like to join us your welcome to come along.  It is a mix of mostly newer jeeps but it is a great time.  Here is a picture as my MB sits now.  

Thanks,

Hank
