Detroit-Area Autopians: Let’s Meet Up Tomorrow At The Walmart Parking Lot

Screen Shot 2022 10 13 At 1.15.29 Pm

Unsanctioned Walmart parking lot meetups are pretty on-brand for The Autopian, a website run in part by two dipshits whose cars are in a constant state of disrepair. So let’s have another such meetup tomorrow, Friday, October 14, 2022.

It’s been far too long since we Detroit-area Autopians (here’s the Facebook group) have gathered in a Walmart parking lot, stood around for three hours, and talked about cars while eating greasy pizza. So let’s take care of that with a meetup tomorrow, Friday.

Here are the details:

  • What: A meetup for Autopian readers
  • When: Friday, October 14, 2022. 6:30 P.M. (or, as many in the comments will likely call it “Too soon and with not enough advanced notice”)
  • Where: Walmart in Troy — 2001 W Maple Rd, Troy, MI 48084
  • Why: Because everyone else in our lives is tired of listening to us talk endlessly about cars. Also, pizza.

Be there.

  1. The MG is out of commission while I wait for a new starter to arrive on Monday, so I plan to hitch up the truck and bring up a shiny silver thing that wouldn’t be out of place in in the back of a Walmart parking lot. I need to pull it out of the backyard anyway to winterize it and give it a wash and wax this weekend. I don’t suppose Mercedes is joining this meetup?

      1. About 10 years ago, I actually did start a local car meet. Well, not really start, more like I took over hosting duties and sorting out where we would meet. It’s a lot of work and it can be a little disheartening when you spend days planning something and a small handful of cars show up when you were expecting 3-5x more. But, it’s also a lot of fun and a good way to meet like-minded people with the same interests.

        1. You have made my interest meter spike. Before commitments, is there a definition of what this entails? Or should I email tips to find out more?

          I don’t usually have a lot of time on my hands so cannot sink hours a week into this. I do look forward to having meetups in my area or co-ambassador with a group who can take turns running it.
