This year, the GRAACA combined its Summer Tour and Fall Tour into one event, and what a hit!
On Saturday, September 12th, 58 antique car lovers (what a crowd!) met up bright and early at 8:30 in the morning for coffee and donuts at the American Legion Post 262 in Biglerville, PA. Regrettably, the weather was a bit uncooperative and rained off and on. Still, some people still braved it and drove their antiques. Event coordinator this year was Annette Yost, who worked hard along with her father and GRAACA President Howard King to devise an appropriate scenic route towards the day’s destinations, made sure everyone got their set of directions before setting out at around 9:45.
From the American Legion, everyone made their way along some beautiful back roads from Pennsylvania into Maryland, eventually coming to the lovely Linganore Winecellars, the largest estate winery and vineyard in Maryland. Attendees got to go on a tour of the winery and visit the new Red Shedman Farm Brewery located on the grounds. A few also opted to taste-test the available and delicious wines, beers, and even ciders.
After the tours and tastings were through, everyone then made the short trek over to Taylorsville and the home of Annette & Dan Yost and Howard & Christina King for lunch. Despite the scattered showers, our hosts were well prepared, having converted their garage into a temporary dining hall. It was a real treat getting to see all of the King and Yost collection, as well as Howard’s current projects.
Lunch included fried chicken and pulled pork among other delights and was provided by Kountry Kafe and Katering in Westminster, MD. Many thanks go out to them, Linganore, the American Legion, Annette Yost, and everyone else who helped make the day a success!
