March 1975 SOA Newsletter ( Michigan
Regional Flea Market and Meeting)
our better organized active regions is in the state of
Michigan. Headed by Jeff Burgy and Roger Hodyka, the
region has grown at an outstanding rate since this duo
took over the controls a year ago. On January 19, 1975
SOA members were treated to a flea market where all sorts
of Shelby American items were sold and traded.
Young, SOA Regional Director from Wisconsin, and Jim
Cowles drove down in a Honda Civic, and with enough parts
to sink a battleship, managed to load the Honda and drive
back to Green Bay in a snow storm no less !
stocking up on everything from Stewart-Warner gauges to
Detroit lockers, the members headed to the Henry Ford
Centennial Library for the remainder of the meeting.
125 members attended from Wisconsin and Ohio as Ralph
Wexler, Ohio Regional Director, brought a group with him
to the meeting. Thanks to the hard work by Jeff and Diane
Burgy, the meeting was highlighted with movies from the
National SOA convention, Road America, plus tech and
restoration seminars. The activities of the meeting
brought sunshine and warmth to the members despite the
harsh Michigan weather.
