    A few vintage Ferrari's do show up as alot of the pre war collectors also collect Ferrari's. Scuderia Ferrari prepared Alfa's will be there along with a few Bugatti's and a lot of pre 1960 Indy and F1 cars. The Miller club does run it as he was from Milwaukee. Low key show. Basically a bunch of rich car collectors rent the track for a few days and invite anyone for a small entry fee to come out and view their racecars.

    Last year this was the only Ferrari I saw, but this fantastic with matching numbers motor Bugatti Type 35 was also on the track all day long. The Miller Vintage event this year is in mid July at the Milwaukee Mile. 50 open wheel vintage race cars come every year, and they are not replicas.

    FOC as a club in the US is still around but the Midwest section has closed due to lack of membership/participation. I'm still the contact person if you need something from FOC.

    I just rejoined FCA and was wondering if I joined the correct club for the region since I haven't been a member since 2004ish. I checked Foc website and saw Midwest was blank. thx. im thinking about doing the Marengo drive

    I’m an on again off again FCA member since my late 20s. Currently on. I’ve always found the vast majority of members genuine car people. For me, being active all depends on how crazy my life is when my renewal comes up. I enjoy the Italian village gathering in September. I miss them having designated parking at the vintage races in July at RA. As far as the 13th, Waiting till the cutoff on the 10th to check the weather. If I go, I might have to hit the Illinois Railway Museum which is next door in union, Illinois.
