Soft market or not, the DACC [Detroit Area Corvair Club] is looking
at record pre-registrations for the HOMECOMING this weekend.
Corvair loving people from as far away as Florida are even now
making their way to Michigan :-)  IT IS NOT TOO LATE to join in on
the fun ... car show, swap meet [record applicants for spaces], 
activities for the wives, 'drive in' movies, tour of the GM Heritage
Collection, slow races, and plenty of food in our Hospitality Room.
There is plenty of room for all so come one, come all!!
