Back to the Bricks Tune-Up Week gives unique experiences to car owners

Posted: Updated:
GENESEE COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

Dennis Hect is at the Auto City Speedway in his 1929 Ford Doodle, just one of the unique cars you'll see during Back to the Bricks Tune-Up Week. Hect is proud to be a part of the fun.

"I’m out here every year," Hect said. "Meeting everybody that's all."

Meeting people like Tim Carwile.

"I like older cars," Carwile said.

Carwile lives just across the street from the race track and enjoys the view the spectacular vehicles bring.

"I notice every year it gets bigger and bigger. So it's quite a thing," Carwile said.

One after another, a procession of four-wheelers made their way into the venue, full of excited car enthusiasts.

Meanwhile, fans of these classic cars came out to the grandstand to see them burn some rubber around the track.

"It's real nice to get out there. I went around the track myself in my Monte SS. But I tell you, the suspension really plays on what you can do out there," Matt Vantol said.

Each driver got a chance to cruise two laps. Vantol is grateful to the organizers of this event for the opportunity.

"I appreciate the heck out of it. It's a neat experience," Vantol said.

After all these years, Hect's Doodle still has some get up and go. He said words can't describe the feeling you get when your ride is on the oval.

"You'd have to do it to know it," Hect said.
