Bringing a Model A is not required to enjoy this weekend, just a love of the Model A. We have some participants that come for the weekend, that grew up in the participating clubs, but do not own a Model A. What brings them back?? Childhood memories of camping in Central Wisconsin, riding in the backseat of a coupe, meeting other kids their age?

Camping is available on the clubgrounds, for those who can rough it for the weekend. For those who prefer roughing it with with wall to wall carpeting, there are a wide variety of motels close by.
Meet at McDonalds on Moreland Rd in New Berlin at 9:00 AM Saturday July 14. The Harry Miller Event draws 1905 to 1963 race cars from all over the United Sates.
"Harry Miller is quite simply the greatest creative figure in the history of American auto racing. He innovated the thoroughbred American racing engine design, which was followed faithfully by those who sought to outdo him. Miller was the first US designer who viewed the racing car as an art object. Miller had passion for metalwork and machinery that soared above and beyond other designers." From "The Miller Dynasty" by Mark Dees, 1994. Harry Miller's cars and engines won the Indianapolis 500 39 times.
Most of the cars at the event will be driven on the track at various times throughout the day. Your ticket is a pit pass that allows you to see the cars close up and talk to the owners. There will be a few cars with Model T and Model A based engines. Great photo ops and the thrill of standing along the pit wall seeing and hearing race cars that are 60 to 110 years old as they speed past. The sound is unbelievable! The Harry Miller Cub will provide parking near the race car tent.
Cost: $20 per person. The club will pay $10 for a member and $10 for one guest. Additional guests will be $20 each.
Lunch: At member expense. Liquid Johnny's 540 S 76th St, West Allis, WI
