The Woodward Warehouse today announced will celebrate the grand opening of its 14,000 square foot facility that—in addition to museum-quality storage and preservation of classic cars—provides the ultimate atmosphere and amenities for classic car enthusiasts to enjoy with their colleagues and compatriots. Open to the public, the celebration will take place on June 23, 2012 3pm-8pm. Those attending can RSVP at (313) 938-9770 or (248) 549-7685.
Until now, auto shows, cruises, tailgating and other outdoor events have been the main vehicles through which classic car enthusiasts have been able to enjoy their cars as a group. The Woodward Warehouse has been uniquely designed to foster and enhance its members’ enjoyment of their classic cars and the company of fellow collectors and enthusiasts.
Located at 4260 Edgeland in Royal Oak, Michigan, Joe Polito, manager and founding member, acquired the former multi-use facility and transformed it into what can best be described as “a yacht club for cars.” Polito notes that the facility provides numerous offerings beyond just traditional networking, ranging from various car themed events, presentations and speakers, to coffee and food gatherings.
The Woodward Warehouse offers two basic levels of membership: $250 a month for year-round storage of a car, and a social membership for $150 a month. Every member has 24/7 access to the facility which features a meeting room, lockers, a kitchen, large-screen televisions, a cigar room, a lounge, free Wi-Fi, and a recreation room with a pool table, board games, and two vintage pinball machines.
Members can utilize the car detailing area and hoist for light maintenance, as well as a 12-person conference room on a first-come, first-serve basis, free for a prescribed number of hours. The facility also is available to members and non-members for special events.
For an additional cost, members can store car parts or utilize the club’s concierge and valet services. Members also enjoy discounts from preferred auto parts, suppliers and service vendors.
Projecting the perfect ambiance for classic car devotees, décor features framed automotive posters and other auto-related memorabilia. Members can even view their car while offsite on the web via 16 surveillance cameras.
