The combined Grand Classic/Grand Stutz/Marmon Muster
is now history! Thats a relief for
those of us involved in organizing the event who can now
return to a semblance of normal life.
It was hard work, and we are pleased by the many positive
comments that we have received
about the event.
A sincere thank you to our Tour hosts Frank Buck,
Bill Wessels, and Prueitt Restoration and
our special exhibit Dave Lockard with his 1918
Packard Truck and display of WW1 historical
items. Thanks also to Hank Hallowell, President of the
AACA Museum and our featured
speaker at the Banquet, who presented Museum attendance
data that seems to indicate interest in
our hobby among millennials.
The weather was fine for the first day or two, then forecasts
of the weather on show day took a

out to be fine overcast, mild
temperatures, light breezes, and most important, no rain!
In fact, with the overcast, conditions
were ideal for photography.
We had an outstanding display of Full Classics, and the
impressive collection of Stutz and
Marmon automobiles was essential to show success. In the
afternoon, we were joined by
members of the Chesapeake Bay Region who enhanced the
event by holding their annual spring
event called the Parade of New Cars in a space set aside
for them on the show field.
This is a brief summary of the highlights of the event
now that it is over. A full report is being
prepared. A major purpose of this initial report is to
provide a place to collect pictures of the
