Looking for shows ot Visit
« on: July 16, 2018, 03:19:58 PM »
Since I "retired" I have been really enjoying going to local and some non local shows. I would to visit a few more shows, cruises, get together, whatever somewhere along the east coast or maybe eastern Ohio, Kentucky, etc.
I've seen Florida Tony post a lost, but that just a  little too far. I am planning on a GT350 run in Oct this year, plus Chicago in Nov, but right now August and September are looking open. Anything in Virginia or the Carolina's? New Jersey or Long Island? I already have Lehigh Valley penciled in.
I'm not getting any younger and I want to get in as many as I can until I can't. Looking for suggestions, doesn't have to be all Shelby (even though that would be nice) but just want a chance to drive and see the country and see nice cars and meet great people. Would like them to within a 300 mile one way drive of DC.

You should have mentioned this sooner, my local club, HVMA (checkout facebook page https://www.facebook.com/HVMustangAssoc/?hc_ref=ARTfbKaXuH1HShC7BtqH9AzwpzNGEpe5tQ7p8dHALMAKoYIMDZJj3UYUR1fz9muYLdU) .  We just had our show this past weekend.  But we usually have it the 2nd Saturday of July.  Not a huge show...we get about 150 cars, more than half are mustangs.  Put it on your list for next year.

I'm assuming this is "up the river" above VerPlank and Peeksville? My grandmother was from Rockland County

I'm got that one planned for the "big trip" in 2022 it will the 50th anniversary of my first drive across the country in old 6S1431. I plan on either doing the same route again, Annapolis to San Jose or the other option is to hit all 48 states in a one month epic drive. Hot August Nights is on the bucket list, thanks
for the tip

It looks neat but the day after I have to be in Lake George New York and that's too much of a trip for me. Years ago maybe, but can't seem to do those 700+ miles a day anymore. Maybe next year

The fall vintage festival at Lime Rock in CT. on Labor Day weekend is always a great take...great car show on the entire racetrack on Sunday, or take in the vintage racing on both Saturday and Monday of that weekend as well.

Yes, this show is in Ulster County (Kingston), right on the Hudson River.  Since you mention Lake George..that is about 2 hrs north of Kingston to give you an idea.
