I am not sure there could have been a more perfect weekend for the annual St. Ignace car show, which for those of you not familiar, is located just over the Mackinac (pronounced Mack-in-aw) Bridge in the beautiful Upper Peninsula of our great state of Michigan. Downstate, the temperatures were dangerously high, in the mid-high nineties with a heat index well over one hundred degrees! But, due to science and the lakes, St. Ignace was sunny, and low 80s most of the weekend. In fact, if you were one of those folks who hopped on a ferry to Mackinac Island, you needed a hoodie — it got chilly on the lake!
This show is a little strange in a few ways. For one, EVERYONE is welcome. Even if a type of car is ‘not your style’ I suspect you would find it here… But there were some high end cars that were absolutely stunning! And of course, there was everything in between. Another unique quality of this show is that it is a 3 day event, but only a one day show! We had a cruise in on Thursday, a parade on Friday and the big event on Saturday. The folks at St. Ignace even treated all of us to a brilliant fireworks display on Saturday night.
I am going to let the photos tell the rest of this story. But one thing for sure — DO NOT MISS THIS EVENT NEXT YEAR! Rumor has it, there will be a large Throttle Gal presence at the 2019 event. (wink wink)
