2020 Season Kick Off, Event Plan Review and Guest Speaker

On Saturday March 28 at 11:00 (arrival at 10:30) we are hosting our 2020 Season Kick-off Meeting.

In past years we have held at really cool venues such as Lingenfelter Collection, Edsel Ford Estate, Stahls Auto Museum…

This year we are changing things up a bit…

Instead of a really cool location we have a really cool guy joining us at our meeting!

Chris Theodore, author of The Last Shelby Cobra (and my times with Carroll Shelby) and former Ford and Chrysler Executive will be our keynote speaker!!

How cool is that!!

Chris is currently President, Theodore & Associates.  The former Engineering Vice President at Ford Motor Company and Chrysler Corporation, Chris worked closely with Carroll Shelby on such vehicles as the Dodge Viper, Ford GT, Shelby Cobra Concept, Shelby GR1, Shelby GT500.  Production vehicles developed under his direction include the Chrysler Minivan, PT Cruiser, Plymouth Prowler, 2002 Thunderbird, 2005 Ford GT and Mustang, among many others.  During his tenure at Ford and Chrysler, Mr. Theodore developed a close friendship with Carroll Shelby.  Chris  holds BSME and MSME degrees from the University of Michigan, and MBA from Michigan State University.  Mr. Theodore has had a lifelong passion for all things automotive, and is often credited as the “Father of the 2005 Ford GT.”
