The WPC Club invites ALL ForCBodiesonly members to their second international and first invitational meet to be held August 6 to 11 in Windsor Ontario.

What are you doing this summer?

What about a vacation in Windsor? And once you’re here, there happened to be a car show? That’s Windsor Ontario from August 6 to 11, 2024

The WPC Club is having their 54th Annual Meet. It also happens to be an International Meet and the first ever Invitational Meet. The host hotel is Caesar’s Windsor Hotel & Casino. (https://www.caesars.com/caesars-windsor). We’ve negotiated special room rates. Call 1-800-991-8888 toll free from anywhere in North America and use special code AWP0807 to take advantage of them. Caesar’s Windsor is located on Riverside Drive and has a terrific view of the Detroit River and the Detroit skyline.

Know someone with a Chrysler product who’s not a member of the WPC Club? Tell them they’re invited. All they need to do is register for the meet. Right across the street from Caesar’s is Festival Plaza. Cars registered for the meet can park here, free, and there’s overnight security too.

If you live in Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Vermont or Washington (state), your enhanced driver’s license will allow you to transit the border with no issues. Otherwise you’ll need a passport. Scuttlebutt is that wait times are currently a couple of months, so if you’re thinking of coming at all, apply now for your passport. How to Apply for A Passport

There’s three days of tours throughout Southwestern Ontario, with attractions for car folks, history buffs and just people who generally enjoy sunshine and a great time.

Like to walk, jog or ride a bike? Windsor has one of the largest riverfront parks anywhere, stretching from the Hiram Walker Distilllery on the east to the Ambassador Bridge on the west. Over three miles of trail right at the edge of the Detroit River. Take in the Detroit skyline from a vantage point few in the U.S. have ever seen.

Do you play golf? On Wednesday our first day of touring, after a stop at the world reknowned RM Restortation, (Auto Restoration | RM Auto Restoration | Leading Car Restoration Facility) we’ll be stopping at Deer Run Golf and Country Club (Deer Run Golf Course) in Blenheim Ontario for lunch. Stay the afternoon for nine or eighteen holes if you’re a duffer.

Thursday our second day of touring takes to the Canadian Transportation Museum and Heritage Village. (Home - Canadian Transportation Museum & Heritage Village)

There are actually three museums on the site focusing on all eras of the automotive world, motorcycles and first responders. Heritage Village contains over a dozen buildings moved to the site from all over Southwestern Ontario that have great historical significance to the area. CTMHV also has a really cool ‘50s diner where we’ll stop for lunch. Once we leave CTMHV, we’ll drive along the coastline of Essex County stopping in historic Amherstburg for ice cream at the Waterfront Ice Cream Parlor. Amherstburg is also the home of Fort Malden that played a key role in the war of 1812.

On Friday our third day provides us with a tour of Willstead Manor a fifteen acre estate in the heart of old Walkerville. Originally built as the home of Edward Chandler Walker, son of Hiram Walker, the Albert Kahn designed building still retains all of its majestic beauty and splendor.

For lunch, we’ll travel a short distance to the Hi-Ho restaurant. The original owner of the Hi-Ho thought so much of Walt Disney that he wrote a letter asking to use the name for his restaurant. Walt himself wrote back giving her permission, and the rest as they say, is history.

When we return to Festival Plaza we’ll join the Ouellette Car Cruise a massive all make car event that tours the streets of Windsor. It’s a pre-planned route through the city and when we return to Festival Plaza we’ll be getting ready for the big show on Saturday.

If none of these events pique your interest, we’ve wineries to tour and taste, and the Hiram Walker Distillery now owned/operated by JPWiser. If this is to your “taste” book your tour here now: Buy Tour Tickets. Plus when you arrive, we’ll have a full selection of other attractions in the greater Windsor area and Essex County to explore on your own. In the immediate downtown area there’s the Art Gallery of Windsor (Art Windsor-Essex) and a great water park called Adventure Bay (Adventure Bay | Home Page ).

Saturday is the car show itself. We’re expecting a huge turnout. Immediately before our meet, there is the Town & County Annual meet nearby, Immediately following our meet is the Airflow Club National Meet in London Ontario, two hours down the road. Following this, is Moparfest in New Hamburg Ontario. If you’ve ever wondered what 1500 Chrysler products all in one place looks like, this is your chance.

Saturday night is the awards banquet at Caeasar’s Windsor. The food is fabulous and a good time will be had by all.

Attached below is the registration form for the meet. Looking forward to seeing everyone in August
