What! Another Vintage pics thread


kris

Recommended Posts

Just back from a great trip (800 miles yesterday in 12.5 hrs), met many friends from the FAQ and made some new ones!

I split the drive down over 2 days to try out a non-interstate route 219 from NY to WV. It was a blast, but not without some weather related challenges including trees and debris on the road in southern PA. Luckily I had the road to myself so I could use both lanes. Day 1 ended in WV, stopped by an intense rain storm which tested driver, window seals and my Cibies to their max. Day 2 was a straight, wet interstate drive into W-S to meet the big crew at the Hawthorne.

There are lots of pics floating around so I will try to post what I haven't seen, and all my pics are here:

Kris, after I ran or rather hobbled up main street to catch you, it was worth it to meet you and see your wonderful car.

Having lived, and sort of still do, in West Virginia, route 219 is one of our favorite roads. What town did you stay in?

Did you set out your recycling before you left?

Hi Bill,

It was great meeting you. Sorry to make you run after me. Hope we have more time next time, maybe at the PVGP?

I stayed just outside of Morgantown. I hope to go back and drive 219 again. It was a blast, especially through south PA. There are some neat towns to investigate along the way.

The recycling did go out...that's one of my sworn duties :)

Some crazy guy drove all the way from Maine? Yes, I did.

Great talking with you at the Hawthorn after the show

See you at the PVGP, my old stomping ground...I can suggest roads north of Pittsburgh.
