Fall Road Tour

Today my wife and I joined some other car enthusiasts and the Saratoga Auto Museum for their fall road tour. We met early in the morning at the museum under some rainy skies. We then set off on a 100 mile preplanned trip through Saratoga, Montgomery, and Schoharie counties. The weather improved shortly after we left. We made a stop at a restoration shop in the town of Glen. After a brief tour of their shop and what they do there we headed off on the backroads again. Our next stop was at the garage of a private collection of cars that was second to none. The collection consisted of many rare cars which included many pristine Corvettes of all eras. Equally impressive was the on site restoration shop to support the growth and maintenance of this amazing collection. We had a nice lunch as we casually viewed the cars and trucks. We had a great day of driving and conversation with some fellow enthusiasts. We look forward to next years tour.

Photo of the week #1

This is a picture my father in law took in the summer of 1970. He followed the Trans Am series through out the northeast. He attended races at Lime Rock, New Hampshire, Bridgehampton, and Watkins Glen. This photo is of Swede Savage in a Plymouth Barracuda during a pitstop. This picture really captures the moment well as the crew changes tires and fuels the car.

Photo of the week

It has been a while since my last post. A few weather related issues have been keeping me busy lately. I decided to do a photo of the week to keep the site fresh even if I don't have a chance to write any commentary. Most of the photos will be my own very amateur photography unless otherwise noted. Photos will vary in subject from racing to road cars.
There are a couple of events involving the Saratoga Auto Museum I will be attending soon. I will have photos and a write about them in a week or two hopefully.
