—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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
