This is truly a wonderful opportunity to GTG with fellow forum members to pay tribute to Pete, share a common interest, enjoy the camaraderie, check out some other cars at the show, and enjoy the beauty of a charming New England town as well as the surrounding countryside.

It's an event I look forward to every year. Nobby and mrelbe come down from the Toronto area, Chief Rider from CT, others, including myself, come from upstate NY, and we've had still others from NYC, NJ, MI and other places which I may have left out. If I did, please forgive!

In 2017, the car show was cancelled at the last minute, but Nobby, mrelbe, Chief Rider and I still got together to share each other's company, reminiscence and enjoy some Italian food. Always good fun.

Maybe the GTG that RLT61 is proposing will become an event just like Great Barrington, and keep the first Thursday (usually!) in August on your calendar open for our 2019 GTG in GB.

Just curious, do most people actually drive a 40 year old car that far. I am in Tampa, and not sure I would chance it. I would love to attend, but may have to trailer the 450SL. I do like the area though and the dates work since I am retired.

Why yes they do, just ask nobby! But this will be a short trip for him!.

Put this on my calendar and will drive from Green Bay, WI...car should be ready for a longer trip by then. My car was built in Feb. 74 so it will be 45 yrs old for this trip.

This is not far from me and I certainly like the area. At this time retirement is well on the horizon but that means I don.t even know if I will be in the country. But I will be keeping this one on the radar.
