The Michigan Mille is a 1000 mile four day rally for sports and classic cars. We have been operating since 2006 and we have grown each year since then. What started out as a thought in the minds of four Chrysler executives looking to exercise their old cars, has turned into one of the premier car rallies in the US. June 2014 was the ninth year of our event and we had 60 enthusiasts join us from all over the country, we even had one participant from Australia. Our original concept was simple, we did not want to spend the approximately $5000 entry fee plus vehicle shipping costs to participate in one of the better known, advertised events. Why couldn’t we create our own utilizing the back roads in and around Michigan and have everyone pay their own hotel and meal costs and we would then charge a small entry fee ($150-$200) to help cover our costs. We have been successful in negotiating discounts for meals and hotels and we pass along those savings to the participants. We believe our program is equal to the big name events without the big cost.
We are currently planning the tenth running of our event. It will be held June 13-16, 2015 and we will be heading to Traverse City Michigan. Those that have participated in the past we be receiving their invitations shortly. If you are interested in attending, let us know and we will add your name to our distribution list
Our growth has come from word of mouth. We do no advertising and yet each year we get more interest due primarily to past participants touting our event. If you think you would have interest in joining us one year, drop us a note and we will be happy to fill you in on the details. We will continue to update this website with more details about past and future events so keep checking back with us from time to time.
If you have an old car and would like to get it out and exercise it on some back roads along with a bunch of like minded “car guys” why not join us for an upcoming event?
