The PVGP hosted it's Countryside Tour in Westmoreland County PA today, 7-23-20

I Did the Tour last year and was able to convince one more of the slant 6 brethren to commit for the event this year. It

My Friend Lou and I Participated in Slant 6 Prepped Vehicles.  We were probably the sore thumbs in the group of smaller, Nimble Alfas, Triumphs, Porsches, Minis, TVR's and Jaguars, But as usual We Kept up and Had a Blast!

2021 Edition:

I ran the Countryside tour again - It was a blast.. I was asked to be a group leader which was also fun as I had additional time to access the route and pace notes.

I was the only Slant 6 /MoPar in attendance this year... they keep letting hang with the Mg's and Triumphs, Morgans and sunbeams...which I enjoy too!

Had a fantastic time as usual!

Got Up Early and Cleaned the car a bit with a clear sky / sun with a smoke haze from the western and Canadian wildfires..


At the First Stop I got word that the sunbeam in my group had some mechanical issues with the fan and the radiator trying to occupy the same area. :-(

So we were down to 3 in my run group for the rest of the tour..

Some shots from the first stop..

Rest of the evening went fine without a problem. and Made it to the farm for lunch.

Also Stopped at the Waterfront - (site of the 1898? Homestead steel strike)  PVGP had a a car cruise there Tuesday nite.. for some glamour shots in front of the old steel mill stacks..

The starting point for the countryside tour is about 3 hrs from you.   It would be fun to have another Grm'er on the route!

GRM'er orthoxstice was telling me he was planning on doing the tour this year.  He's got a dark green 2 door Volvo 122.  Did you happen to see that car?
