On Saturday, April 30th, the Gettysburg Region met bright and early at Performance Motors of Hanover for a “coffee and cars” event. The owners of Performance Motors were very generous and not only provided us with coffee, tea and donuts, but also kindly sectioned off a portion of their lot just for our club. In addition, the showroom was open which is full of Mustangs and other interesting vehicles, including some bumper cars. This seems to be a popular event and Performance Motors will be a hosting another “coffee and cars” on May 14 from 8:00 to 10:00am if anyone is interested.
After getting our directions and walkie-talkies from tour organizer Bob Channell, we headed out on a relaxing, scenic drive over to the Royal Farms in Hampstead, Maryland where we met up with members of the Chesapeake Region before making our way back to PA to visit Treasured Motorcar Services in New Freedom. They were having their Spring Open House & Car Show which was free to attendees. Beef-it-Up catering was onsite serving up delicious pit beef and pulled pork.
After filling our stomachs, perusing the many cars present for the show and on display at Treasured Motorcars, and possibly even making a few new friends, we went for a final 10 minute drive over to Brown’s Orchard & Farm Markets. Many members walked out with various goodies including sweet treats, fresh produce, and flowers.
It was a beautiful day for a leisurely drive. We couldn’t have asked for better weather. Despite a few people experiencing some car trouble (happens to the best of us), I think everyone enjoyed themselves. Bob did an excellent job organizing the day’s activities, which were made all the more enjoyable since we were not on a strict timetable. Many thanks go to Bob and everyone else who helped make the day a success!
