On Saturday, August 26th the GRAACA held it’s annual summer tour. This year, tour planners Jerry Black and John Sayler had something very unique in store: a trip to the private estate of Irenee DuPont, Jr.
Mr. DuPont, who is 97 years young, has owned a 1936 Olds for 81 years now. He an his wife were delightful hosts and had a few surprises for their guests. Apart from their personal collection of antique cars, they also fired their pipe organ. GRAACA member Pat Shaffer wrote a few comments after her visit:
“That was not what I expected. Whoa!!!! Super fantastic. I just wanted to stay in the little room and listen… it was a huge WOW of fun, and interesting.”
Many thanks are due to Mr. And Mrs. DuPont for opening up their home to us.
Pictures are coming soon!
