Invitation from Roe Green,

On behalf of CEMA (Chrysler Employee Motorsport Association), I am pleased to announce that the theme of our 2006 Car Show will be "A Celebration of the 40th Anniversary of the Dodge Charger."
The car show will be held at the Walter P Chrysler Museum which is located on the DaimlerChrysler Headquarters campus in Auburn Hills, MI. The show will be held on June 10.

Everyone is welcome to participate!

Please check our web site for more information about CEMA and our past car shows -

ATTENTION EARLY BIRDS!!! The Holiday Inn Select in Auburn Hills is ready to begin accepting reservations! The room rate of $79.00 is valid from June 8 to June 10, 2006. We have a block of 25 rooms on Thursday, June 8 and blocks of 50 rooms on Friday and Saturday, June 9 and 10. If you are arriving before June 8, or staying after June 10, you will need to contact the Holiday Inn Select directly and make the reservations.

 The cut-off date for reservations at the Holiday Inn Select - Auburn Hills is May 18, 2006. Here is something to keep in mind . . . For the past two years, the Detroit Pistons (who play their home games in Auburn Hills) have been in the NBA playoffs and finals. These games bring many visitors to the area during the week of the CEMA Car Show. Please consider this when making your plans.

 The 2006 CEMA Car Show Page was updated to provide links to the hotel web site and reservation system.  I am working with two other hotels in the area but those contracts are not finalized at this time. The room rate at the two other hotels will be the same or slightly higher than the Holiday Inn Select.

 Also, a tentative day-of-show event schedule has been posted.

Now is the time to share your ideas about activities related to the 40th Anniversary celebration. Some of the ideas I've heard include:

 1. A cruise on Woodward Avenue (the venue for the incredible Woodward Dream Cruise - this year the date is August 20)

 2. A tour of Meadowbrook Hall (the mansion on the campus of Oakland University built by Matilda Dodge Wilson, the widow of John Dodge); check out the Internet site:

 3. How about a tour of the Chrysler Technology Center? OK, don't get your hopes up too high. Access to the complex is VERY, VERY tightly controlled. IF (a very big IF) we are able to arrange tours, participation would be EXTREMELY limited. If there is interest in tours of the complex, we will do our best to try to arrange something.

 4. A tour of the Conner Avenue Assembly Plant, the home of the Dodge Viper. This is another big "IF" because of the tight security since 9/11. If there is interest, we will try!

 5. Milan Dragway. Some of the local First Generation Charger guys could help us in this area.

 6. An evening event at the Museum (maybe June 8 or June 9). Could be a cook-out followed by a cruise or ???

 If you have any ideas, please share them here. We would like to make this event one that will be talked about for years. Please contribute any reasonable suggestions.
