2003 Mini-Meet in St. Clair, MI


2003 Michigan Meet and Greet

On July 19, 2003 a group of First Generation Monte Carlo owners all got together at the home of Leo Konik in St. Clair Michigan for a Meet and Greet. For those who do not know what that is, it is basically a chance for friends, and members to get together without all of the hassles of your conventional car show, or club meet.

In attendance were FGMCC Members, non-members, friends, and relatives. The cars present were from stock to modified, street to strip, restored to unrestored. People did not even have to have their Montes present to join in and have fun; we had quite a few in attendance that were Monte less.

People from Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, and Canada were present to just kick back and relax amongst friends. We had 3 of the club officers present for the informal event Pete McLearen Vice-President, Lisa McLearen Secretary, and Ryan Bahr Webmaster. 

All generations of Monte Carlos’ were well represented. We had a total of 8 Montes’ in attendance 6 black, and 1 green. Listed are the Montes’ that were there.

1970 Monte Carlo SS - Triple black – Stock – Leo & Sue Konik

1970 Monte Carlo - Black – Heavily modified – Daryl Smith

1971 Monte Carlo SS – Black – Modified – Jim & Heidi Mitschkes

1971 Monte Carlo – Black – Stock – Bruce & Sandy Stange

1972 Monte Carlo Custom – Black – Stock – Marcello Battaglini

1972 Monte Carlo – Black – Modified – Leo & Sure Konik

1972 Monte Carlo – Black – Modified – Tim Knight

1972 Monte Carlo – Green – Modified – Pete & Lisa McLearen

Leo Konik, and Daryl Smith were kind enough to take FGMCC Secretary Lisa McLearen for rides in their Montes’ all I can say is the smile was on her face from those the rest of the day (Lisa loves fast cars), and Leos’ street received a new coating of rubber compliments of the Meet and Greet…. HA!

This was truly a great time for everyone who attended, there was a BBQ with a lot of bench racing, and getting to know each other.

You could easily tell that a great many friendships were made that day.

Although this was not an official FGMCC meet, Leo Konik was presented with a die cast 1970 Monte Carlo that everyone who attended signed as a thank you for letting the Meet and Greet take place at his home.

We hope this becomes a regular kind of gathering around the country, and we hope this is the first of many in the Michigan region.
