Detroit's White Castle Days Reunion 2010
http://www.castledays.com/ The white castle reunion is a get together
for all the back in the day and todays racers. The white castle in Detroit
at Livernois & Warren Ave. I'm the host of the reunion, but the castle Is
much bigger than just some cars getting together. A lot of racing history
started down at the white castle, this goes back to the 60's. My first time
down to the late night event was in 1972. I was only 10 years old and it
was after midnight on a friday night. after that night I was hot rod
hooked. Detroit's City Council needs to take part in this.
