  1. Gene Conley hosted the parties and used his profits to buy a red porsche...Very good times...as i recall, he had two parties, roughly 83 to 85 ish.....I know you could bring in your own keg, we did...there were also some good times at the capitol for the two ROMANTICS CONCERTS.....

  2. Wow it looks so nice, and so...mod! You can definitely tell that was the 60s. It had become such a dive by the time I moved away. Another victim of the fall of Flint.

  3. This motel is now named the Travel Inn. It is still a dive, with the sign out front listing daily and weekly rates. Now if we could all go back to the time of the postcard picture...a far more innocent time for sure...

  4. I HAVE FOND MEMORIES. WE SPENT OUR FIRST NIGHT OF MARRIED LIFE THERE. 49 YEARS AGO. I DON'T EVEN WANT TO DRIVE BY IT NOW. THAT WAS THEE PLACE IN 1960....I GUESS ALL GOOD THINGS MUST COME TO AN END....

  5. Grew up on Dort Highway back in the sixties and seventies. Rode my bike past that place everyday. I even delivered newspapers there. Moved away the summer after high school graduation in 1976 - never looked back.
