MD area GTG 8/16/08

Date: August 16, 2008

Time: From about 5 PM to ?

Place: Olney, Maryland at the Olney Town Center Shopping Center. Map of 18101 Town Center Dr Olney, MD by MapQuest
We should be parked Northwest of the star in the Map Quest guide, in the second or third parking rows. It will be obvious when you get there.....

Don't eat before you get there, because there are a number of decent restaurants on site and nearby, as well as fast food joints if you're in the mood for a cholesterol overdose.

Normally there are a number of car clubs that meet there to show off and “chew the fat” with the other car buffs, we can join them. I have seen everything from a 1940’s Packard and a “Torpedo Back" Pontiac to a few “Hot Rods”, to some rather mean Street Rods, one guy came all the way from New Jersey!
It should be a fun deal, because you never know who or what will be there.

Maybe we can caravan down there sometime this Fall, if they do it on a regular basis.

Missed again......

I would like to make an event, but, this time I was in Mich to visit for awhile and saw the "Dream Criuse". If you are a car buff, I highly recommend checking it out next year. According to the local papers, over 40,000 old cars and between 1-1.5 Million people ! Hopefully someone will come up with an idea for an event in Northern VA or Central MD in Oct., when it is cooler. And, Hef, thanks for all your efforts to get these old MBs together.

We're getting together at Chad's house on the 27th. Why don't you come to that one?
