Motor City Packards has monthly events including business meetings, social events, driving tours, tech sessions, and visits to private collections. Our two most popular events are the traditional weekend Spring Tour and the annual banquet. Most event activities are in the metropolitan Detroit area with a few out of state so we can keep in touch with most of our members.

The Cramer Award for Distinguished Service.
In 1995, Motor City Packards established a distinguished service award to be presented at the Spring Tour or at the Annual Banquet. The award is named for Russ and Joan Cramer, charter members of the region, who have contributed so much of their time and talents over the years. No club of any kind can exist and flourish without dedicated members, and Russ and Joan Cramer exemplify the concept of dedicated service. Each year, a committee appointed by the director makes recommendations for the recipient candidates and then makes its selection. The committee is to always have at least one former winner of the award as a member. A large traveling award topped by an Adonis radiator ornament is inscribed with the winner's name(s) each year and a plaque is also presented, which the winner keeps.
