Northern Ohio area events

I know I'm probably really out of date on these, but can anyone tell me what happened to the following:

1)Packard swap meet in NW Ohio. I seem to remember this being held at a hotel in NW Ohio near Fremont, OH maybe 10 or 12 years ago. Does this meet still exist?

2)Studebaker/Packard/orphan show held at Summit Racing in Tallmadge, OH in late summer. This seems to have disappeared during the COVID era. Anyone know if this one is still around somewhere?

Thanks,
ScottG

1) Used to be known as Packards at Perrysburg. It was an easy one day trip for me from W. Penna - great swap meet. Hosted by Motor City Packards, they abandoned that venue in favor of the Packard Proving Grounds - too far of a trip for me.

2) Held by the Ohio Regional Chapter of SDC, I used to meet Randy Berger there. However, I stopped going after a string of terribly hot/humid summers. I went back for one year, prior to the COVID pandemic, and found a lot of Packard regulars absent. The 29th edition was held last year.

Thanks for the reply.

Is the Perrysburg swap that is now held at the Proving Grounds a part of the Fall Open House or is it a separate event? I can't find a listing for a swap meet at the Proving Grounds.

And yes, the last few years of the S-P meet at Summit were pretty miserable and the Packard turn-out low. I still enjoyed the show, though and looked for info on it last year but came up empty. I just checked Summit's website and saw nothing listed. What's your source for the information on this meet?

You'll have to ask MCP as I've never been to their Open House.

Meanwhile, I don't follow any particular source, but simply did a Google search for:

"studebaker orphan cruise summit racing"

Probably too early for a listing at Summit Racing's website

Sadly, the Perrysburg meet is long gone, as is the original host hotel. The Holiday Inn Holidome “French Quarter” in Perrysburg has been leveled and re-developed.

The Packard Proving Grounds holds an annual open house event in October. The PPG runs that event, not Motor City Packards, although you will definitely see lots of MCP members volunteering and displaying their cars that day.
