Back to the Bricks is Back

Want to see downtown filled with people? Back to the Bricks starts tomorrow.

Scott Atkinson of The Flint Journal reports:
"Now in its fifth year this car show has grown faster than a revved up muscle car. Last year, an estimated 20,000 cars and 125,000 car lovers rolled into town. And, this year organizers expect it to draw even larger crowds."


  1. "...this car show has grown faster than a revved up muscle car."


  2. Um, yes, very unfortunate choice of words, unless there are some rare muscle cars out there that get bigger in size as the years pass...maybe they start out as a GTO and become a Hummer?


Thanks for commenting. I moderate comments, so it may take a while for your comment to appear. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at
