The Official W-Body/3800 Gathering is back for 2016!

Join us on Saturday, June 25th, 2016, from 10 AM - 8 PM in Mt. Clemens, Michigan for the fourth annual W-Body/3800 Gathering!

As many of you know, our first three events were held at a location in Royal Oak, Michigan. We started off in 2013 with a partially empty parking lot, a few sponsors, and a modest showing of just over 100 W-Body and 3800 powered vehicles from across the Midwest. In 2014, we added a few sponsors, and broke the 200 vehicle mark. Fast forward to 2015, and we smashed even our wildest goals with over 300 vehicles attending; not to mention an appearance and sponsorship by almost every relevant parts and service provider for our platform.

It's no secret that by 2015, our event location was bursting at the seams. Each year, we set a goal to exceed the previous years attendance, features, and expectations. It is with this is mind that in 2016, we say a heartfelt goodbye to the City of Royal Oak, in search of a bigger, better W-Body/3800 Gathering.

Enter our new host, The Gibraltar Trade Center, 237 N River Rd, Mt Clemens, MI 48043.

Let me be the first to say, THIS IS EXCITING ON SO MANY LEVELS!

For those who do not know, The Gibraltar Trade Center is a staple of Southeastern Michigan, and a local favorite. It is one of the nations largest flea markets with over 300,000 square feet of indoor space. Gibraltar is home to hundreds of small businesses.

What is the best part about the new event location? The grounds of the Gibraltar Trade Center are absolutely massive, the parking lot is HUGE, and the Gibraltar ownership team are thrilled to have us on their grounds!

Now, it's time to look forward to some of the options and features we will have to offer at the 2016 W-Body/3800 Gathering which include:

- A concrete burnout pad (see the attached pictures)
- A massive covered outdoor structure for shelter from the summer heat
- Additional food and drink options
- Picnic tables (50+)
- Air-conditioned indoor shopping for all ages
- Endless parking for both spectators and show vehicles
- Outdoor bathroom options
- And much more!

As always, the event will include:

- Show classes and trophies
- Swap meet style parts sales from attendees
- Indoor bathrooms
- The attendance and sponsorship of many of the major parts and service providers for our platform
- DJ
- 50/50 raffle and prize drawings
- Free giveaways
- And much more!

IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE: All vehicles (show vehicles as well as spectators) that enter the grounds of Gibraltar will be charged a $2 fee upon entering. This is the regular entrance fee for parking at the market, and helps support the ownership group that is hosting our event!

As always, a minimum $10 donation will be required per show vehicle (the same as 2015) which will be paid upon entering the show area.

Look for more information and specifics in the coming weeks!

NOTE: This year the G8/Chevrolet SS will be welcomed back at 2016 the event. The G8/Chevrolet SS's were part of the events in 2013 & 2014 but were eliminated from the 2015 event due to space constraints. We are thrilled to be able to welcome back these vehicles in 2016 and hope for a strong appearance from their platform.

P.S. - There is a pay-and-spray style car wash across the street. smile emoticon

- Darryl, Scott, and the W-Body/3800 Gathering team!

I might try to slide up there on the 25th. I say try to (I'd say yes for sure if I was totally free and clear) because it's me and my girlfriend's six month anniversary [F**CK! :(] ] and she wants to hang out all day but if there are restaurants and beaches close by then I'll consider heading east on Saturday. Panda, you going to be there for sure? If so, we could possibly link up and discuss Impalas and W-Bodies and walk around and be fanboys until my girlfriend gets tired and starts bitching. But omg, a W-Body Party?? So much win right here.
