It sounds like a good meet. I would like to attend but a little too far away.

I see that Shelton is at CT 8 and not too far north of the Bridgeport Ferry Terminal. This is reachable by Long Islanders like me in a Model "A." I plan to be there.

This is my favorite show every year. Sadly, my daughter is graduating from college that weekend and my wife feels I should be there instead.

Clearly, she doesn't understand...

See you all next year,

Ken

No real vendor's, people selling from the trunk of their car or a table, very reasonably priced food vendor.

Is this the meet Wayne Carini from 'Chasing Classic Cars' highlighted on his show a few years ago? He and his dad used to attend when Wayne was young?

Looked like a fun time.

I think there should be a T&A T-shirt made to sell at this show.

Great news! I think I will see if we have enough decent stuff to make set up worthwhile. This may not be a huge event, but organizers are great and they manage to keep it all in period. We will go one way or another.
