June 15-19, 2015
GT-40 is planned for June 15 – 19, 2015, in Frankenmuth, MI. The Michigan Rowdies will be the host club for this GT and believe that the city of Frankenmuth will prove to be a unique city for a GT. This will be the Michigan Chapter’s fourth time to host a national meet.
Frankenmuth is known as Michigan’s Little Bavaria and takes great pride in preserving its German heritage. The host hotel is the Bavarian Inn Lodge, a German themed hotel that has lots of extras to keep any visitor busy during their stay. In addition to some planned unique events, GT-40 will also celebrate the 60th anniversary of the introduction of the MGA 1500. All 1500 owners are urged to attend to help join in the celebration. Put Frankenmuth down as a destination for June of 2015 and enjoy another unique GT.
