Any of you guys going on the Mystic Seaport Tour this Thursday thru Sunday? Cathy and I are, along with Scott and May. They always put together a fantastic event followed by the car show in the Seaport on Sunday. This will be our 5th time participating.

Would love to but 200+ miles one way is just a no-go these days. Enjoy.

Even better... The fish fry at the Hoxie Firehouse at the end of the third day of touring. Not being a hub tour, it's great to see all of these vehicles loaded down with luggage as we hit all of the various stops along the way. Usually, thirty cars are involved, all pre 1931. We had two early-teens Overlands, a 1917 Rolls, a '27 Cadilac, Willy's Knight (sleeve valve), lots of model T's and others. It's quite the rolling car show. At the Seaport, most of the vehicles drive around and give rides to the public within the confines of the village. Period clothing is encouraged.

I didn't know they did that at the Seaport!!

I will be in Rosemount IL giving a Class on Sunday other wise I would go.

My wife took my granddaughters to Mystic this summer to see Great Granddad's TOY.

Many years ago, my grandfather was friends with "Colonel" Green and my dad (the girl's great grandfather) access his estate at Round Hill.
"Colonel" Green had the Charles W Morgan at his dock and my dad played on the ship.
Dad and my grandfather would talk about visiting with "Colonel" Green and the things my dad did at Round Hill.
He used to like riding his bicycle around the estate and crawled all over the ship - including the "smelly" part in the bilge.

It would be fantastic to take my dad's Model T to the seaport tour.
I will have to add it to my bucket list!!!

This event has been going on for over 20 years now and it's always in late September. The Tour usually covers about 250 miles and spans 3 days. Contact them and get yourself onto the list for next year. It's always a lot of fun and the array of vehicles it attracts is amazing, including steamers and high wheelers.

Dick Wren always drove his 14 touring in this event. He passed last year well into his 90s. His daughter now his car in Dallas. Dick's life as an engineer with Pratt and Whitney and later at Electric Boat is a fascinating story of design and invention. I am sure he will missed.

The Mystic Seaport 3 day tour was blessed with perfect weather and Sunday, the show day, attracted record crowds. We had a fantastic time. Anybody who can should try do this event next September.
