(1993 - 2005) The Wisconsin Convertible Classic
Playing in the road with friends
It's all about friends!
It's all about friends!
It's all about friends!

After thirteen years of unmatched topless touring, the Wisconsin Convertible Classic “turned off the engine” for good. Though that news carries a bit of sadness for anyone who ever participated, the good news is that the fun isn’t anywhere near over yet!

As directors and participants in the WCC we’re proud to have worked with you and so many great people that made those thirteen tours possible. We established touring benchmarks for the ages. And we know that YOU and WE have a lot more open-air cruising left to enjoy before we put the top up for good!

We are determined that with your participation and support this new event will build on the best of the WCC, deliver equal measures of friendship, excitement, fun, discovery, thrills and camaraderie – and go on to establish even greater traditions of its own.
