Day 2 of Back of the Bricks 2016

By  | 

FLINT (WJRT) - (08/17/16) - The twelfth annual Back to the Bricks is now in full swing.

Wednesday and Thursday evening will be the casual rolling cruise along Saginaw Street between Flint and Grand Blanc Township.

Friday will be an at will car show in the evening and a concert.

The final day - on Saturday - will be a day-long car show.

"We put America on wheels and, you know what? We show it when we have the heritage of all these great auto pioneers and all these great people here in the city of Flint that are making a difference here in our community and rising above some problems and making it a great auto show," said Back to the Bricks Committee member J.D. Winegarden.

Wednesday, Kettering University's College Cruisers brought a whole new approach to Mid-Michigan's largest car show.

The SAE Team has been putting the finishing touches on its new Formula racer. It's the fastest one they've made yet.

Students also have created a couple of quirky vehicles, including a "Cooler Car".

On top of that, they've also come up with a converted, kids Power Wheels Jeep, now complete with a high powered, chainsaw engine. It reaches speeds of 25 miles per hour.

We have a lot of visitors from out of town and folks that are local coming into the University Avenue Corridor. We're excited for Kettering University to be a part of this,” said Jack Stock, external relations director at Kettering University.

Throughout Bricks week, Kettering is inviting cruisers to visit its Center for Automotive Research.
