Leaf Peepers Fall Tour

—Saturday, October 26, Manchester, Pa.

         Join us for the joint AACA Gettysburg Region’s and Pierce-Arrow Society Chesapeake Region’s fall foliage run on Saturday, October 26th. We will start the morning with coffee and donuts at 9:00 am at our first location, GRAACA member William H. Wessels’ private Formal Cadillac car collection in Dillsburg, Pa. He has Cadillacs from the teens through the 70’s. There is ample trailer parking on the grass if you wish to trailer your vehicle to the starting point. We are encouraging members to bring your “old cars” as this is a shorter tour, measuring approximately 80 miles roundtrip, all on two-lane roads to enjoy the fall colors.

At 10:00 am we will depart from Wessels’ for a 25 mile ride to our second private car collection owned by GRAACA member Jay Crist. He has amassed the largest collection of stand-up to drive package and milk trucks. Jay’s vehicles include many rare antique trucks, of which there are examples from Auburn, Divco, Mack, PackageCar, and Thorne, to name a few.

From there we will continue with a 10-mile ride along the Susquehanna River to our lunch stop to be served at 1:00 pm at the John Wright Restaurant in Wrightsville. Here we will have a limited menu from which we can choose from 4 entrees. Alcoholic beverages are available for purchase.

This concludes the tour, leaving time to return to our trailers and home before dark. Our route back to Dillsburg (with directions) will be on other scenic two-lane roads. Price is $25.00 per person. Guests are welcome. More information contact Karl and Mary Krouch at 717-697-9543 or [email protected] Registration form in the July/August issue of the Gas Buggy Gazette or call Karl Krouch.

Summer Tour to 50th Swigart Museum Meet

—August 9th-10th, Huntingdon, Pa.

         The Gettysburg Region AACA is planning an overnight tour to the 50th Swigart Museum Car Show hosted by the Allegheny Mountain Region AACA at the Swigart museum in Huntingdon, PA.

         Mark you calendar for Friday, August 9th and Friday, August 10th, optional Sunday, August 11th if you want to tour the storage buildings.

         You are responsible for your own reservations and schedule for traveling, below are several driving routes.  You can enjoy the weekend of festivities beginning Friday evening and ending Sunday with a tour of the storage building or just attend the show on Saturday.

The drive to Huntingdon using back roads is very scenic and relaxing or you can travel Route 22/322 west from Harrisburg or the Pa. turnpike west to Route 522 N. to 22/322 W. My favorite route is Rt. 641 W from Mechanicsburg, Carlisle to Rt. 522 N to 22/322 W.

This route will take you over two mountains with lots of scenery and little traffic with a nice lunch & rest stop at the intersection of 641 and Rt.75 at Spring Run, Pa. Follow 641 to Rt. 522 at Shade Gap and continue north to 22/322. Turn left toward Huntingdon and the Swigart Museum will be on your right about four miles before getting to Huntingdon.

Check your old fashion maps for the best route from your location and enjoy the trip.
