Each year the Ann Arbor Mainstreet Events organization blocks the streets of downtown Ann Arbor and some 250+ cars line the streets.   There is always a great turn out of some pretty special cars including a number of Porsches.   Stroll the streets and take in the cars and the wonderful places to eat and drink.
