About the event

You may have heard of the Hemmings Motor News “Great Race”, an annual, multi-day rally that is open only to cars from 1974 and older. This year’s race runs from Warwick, Rhode Island to Fargo, North Dakota. They will be an overnight stop in Perrysburg, Ohio on Tuesday, June 21. This is a great opportunity for those in southeastern Michigan to make a short mid-week drive to see some unique vehicles and meet their just-as-unique owners, navigators, and support staff. 

For those who are interested, we can meet in downtown Perrysburg around 4:30 PM on Louisanna Steet at the over-the-road inflatable archway where the cars will arrive, and be announced. We expect that the archway will be over Louisanna Street near East 3rd Street and the railroad tracks. Parking lots are located on both sides of Louisanna Street and East 3rd Streets. If those lots are full, you will need to find parking on the adjacent side streets in the area. It could be crowded, so plan to get there early. 

The cars should arrive over a 90-minute time span. They will be parked on Louisanna Street between East 3rd and Front Streets. We should have time to view the cars and talk with the rally participants. Then maybe we can grab a bite at a local restaurant before we head home.

In the meantime, if you’d like to learn more about the Great Race, visit their web page: Just to whet your appetite a bit, the 2021 Great Race was won by two young sisters in a 1932 Ford Coupe. Other entries ranged from a pair of 1916 Hudsons to a 1974 Peterbilt 359. There was even a 1963 Jaguar E-Type Coupe.
