Started in 2005, the Spring Meet & Greet has become not only a tradition for members of the MiFbody.com website, but a tradition for members of the entire Michigan Camaro and Firebird enthusiast community. The show is meant to be a laid back, casual show to promote face-to-face interaction with Camaro and Firebird enthusiasts. Many of us know eachother through the various large forums but we do not get a chance to meet in person and check out each other's cars. The Meet & Greet was created to help create new friendships and new bonds.
In 2009, the informal BBQ was amped up into a full fledged car show. We switched locations from being held at local Metro Parks to our new home: Bakers of Milford. Known for their free weekly Sunday cruise-ins, Bakers of Milford was the perfect fit for our show. A great restaurant, clean restrooms, outdoor grill, and an open parking lot: all the makings for a perfect car show!
For 2016, the Michigan FBody staff are happy to announce that we will be supporting Turning Point, a charity which supports victims of domestic and sexual abuse. We ask for a minimum $10 donation for anyone who wishes to have their vehicle judged. When pre-registering, select whether you would like to be Judged or in the Show & Shine class. To ease pre-registration, we will not be taking donations in advance and instead will collect donations at the event. We also plan to have multiple ways to donate towards Turning Point while at our event, so bring your wallets and let's help support a local charity!

General Plans for the Meet & Greet:
The Meet & Greet, as a tradition, is a casual meet up to hang out and have fun! The event's host website (MiFbody.com) is still growing at an exponential rate, and there's still a lot of names that we know from the community but we don't have a face to place with the name. The Meet & Greet was first held shortly after the site was created to be able to put faces to the user names on the site. The whole point is to meet new people, hang out, show off our own cars and check out each other's cars! Over the years, we've grown to include the entire FBody community not only in Michigan but in neighboring states and Canada! Our goal is not directly meant to promote our website - but more to promote the FBody community as a whole and encourage the community to establish friendships with people in the area with the same passion for the cars we own! The Meet & Greet is MiFbody.com's way to try and give back to the community by having a yearly show to look forward to.
PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING FOR 2016: In years past, the show concluded shortly after the awards ceremony. We've noticed that folks are anxious for the awards ceremony and as such we've moved the ceremony to 2pm. The show can continue after the awards ceremony, but this will allow folks to mingle after the awards and check out the winner's rides.
