Mayor Mike Neitzke and the Greenfield Car Show.

First things first…Mike is a true car guy. Where he would drive his classic muscle to places like the original Solid Gold McDonalds and other cruise nights. He grew up in Greenfield Wisconsin when cruising hot rods was cool and working with back yard mechanics was the daily trade.

Fast forward to present day where is the popular Mayor of Greenfield. He has held that position for over 16 years. Before accepting this position, he served the 5th district for over 7 years. He continues to work with organizations that serve other cities and counties.

Mike decided to commit his resources to serving those memories of cruising and hanging out with car people. Over 5 years ago – he and the council of Greenfield – decided to host a car show. The location was held in a refreshed park that serves music lovers, farmers markets, amusement rides and car shows.  

In addition, to hosting the car show there will be two dedications held during the event. There will be an honor dedication to those who lost their lives in the September 11th attack in New York City.

Then there will be a special memorial award to honor Jim Patterson who was the owner the famous Solid Gold McDonalds. This restaurant was the go-to-place to hang out with your car and music lovers. Before there was a “Hard Rock Café” there was Solid Gold.

We are going to get Mike into the WHRR studio and have him talk about his commitment to his lifelong community he loves.
