June 23-26, 2017.  Thompson Vintage festival.  This is its 3rd year, so its gaining momentum.  Looks like going up on Friday may be a good deal for our group, as its the Porsche, BMW, and British car day.  There’s a car corral, vendors, and other stuff going on besides the racing.

July 8, 2017, Deutsche Classic at Oley Fairgrounds.  We always seem to find at least a couple of guys who are going.  Meet for breakfast at Bear Swamp and drive over on back roads.  More info to follow

July 9, 2017.  British invade Gettysburg.  I’ve never been to this show, but this year may be the first.  Lots to see and do down in that area.  My friend George lives nearby, so may make a two day trip.

July 15, 2017.  Mike Macenka is organizing a garage tour of the Dave Markel collection.  He has numerous fine autos that typically get shown at Radnor Concours and the like.  Its down in Skippack, you look at cars in the morning – break for lunch at one of the many eateries in town – and finish up in the PM.  Cost is 20 bucks or so, and limited to 20 folks.  Mike- count me in…

August 4-6.  Das Awkst Fescht.  3 days of car shows, and a flea market and car corral.  Sounds like they need us.  Maybe we could go on Sunday as a group in the show featuring clubs?  I had lunch last Saturday with a guy who is on the committee and it sounds like they’d like to pump it up some.

August 5, DelVal MG puts on their show at Pennypacker Mills.  Low key Brit show.  We toured the mansion there last year, but I’ll probably head back down this year.  Do Macungie on Sunday.

August 12,13, 2017.  New Hope Car show.  Been hot as blazes the past couple years.  But this 2 day show often brings out some very high end cars.  different features on each day, so check the schedule.  I’m sure we will schedule a breakfast and nice drive down and back on one of the days, so stay tuned.


August 16-19,2017.  VTR 2017 -Princeton, NJ.  Another national show just down the road from us.  The vintage Triumph group has a big shindig.  I don’t have a triumph and not sure what all they will be doing, but hey-its only 60 miles away.  155-170 to register for the 3 days.  20 bucks for non car participant?  Check it out…google vintage triumph register.

August 27, 2017. Lanco’s show at the Polo field outside of Lititz.  I’ve done this one the past two years.  Found some great roads for the drive over and back.  Seen a lot of very nice cars at this one, but never stayed long enough to watch the polo ponies at 2:00.  Could be a very fun day.

September 2, 2017, Duryea Day in Boyertown.  This yearly show is put on by the museum in town.  I recall going about 20 years ago, so its been going on a long time.  Might be fun to see whats up this year.

September 8, 2017, Watkins Glen GP festival.  This is the date for the Stone Bridge Driver’s event, this year featuring cars of the Autobahn.  Time for those grosser Benzes to strut their stuff.  Bill and I usually make a 4 day deal out of this, leaving Thursday afternoon with backroads up, enjoy the festival on Friday, the race track on saturday for the vintage races, and home on Sunday.  Cheap hotel in horseheads runs about $70. per nite.

October 14, 2017.  Brits at the Village.   Annual Brit show at Peddlar’s Village in Lahaska.  Put on by Philly MG club.  Always a nice selection of Brit Cars.
