Small Town America-Pennsylvania style

Saturday 6/22 we made another foray to a PA town for a “anything made before 1983” show along Main street. This time it was to Waynesboro, a small town a little north of the MD border and near Ft. Ritchie and Camp David. It was a pleasant 1 3/4 hour drive on country roads to the town, where we found about a half-dozen of our BRRTA friends already set up. They had saved us a space, so we were all together -almost all of us, anyway. Gene had parked his E Type about 1/2 block away because he entered from the other end and did not see us. The show was well organized and well attended, as you can see from the variety of cars on display. Temperature was in the mid to upper 80’s, so shade was necessary to survive. Also, lunch in a very nice air-conditioned cafe helped us avoid the mid-day heat. The only things missing were the chairs and umbrellas I forgot to put in the trunk when I took the Daimler out of our garage. Age related or just stupid????

At about 3pm the show was over and we all headed over to Mike & Patty’s’ house for an early grill dinner on their attractive backyard deck. They’ve done almost all of the wood and stone work themselves, and it is fantastic. After stuffing ourselves, we left about 6 for the drive home over the same country roads, and it took about the same time. After we got back here, I realized the headlights and other things that power off the dash system were not working. I haven’t investigated yet, but am assuming a blown fuse. We did still have turn signals, emergency flashers¬† and brake lights, and the “bright” stalk on the steering column would activate the hi beams. One nice thing about driving on the longest day is that really late sunset. Here are a few shots from the cookout.

Again, thanks to Mike & Patty for hosting the group, and for making us all aware of the event in the first place.
