Saturday, June 6, 2015
Spend a delightful day in your Orphan Car exploring the rural back
roads of Howard County MD. Your tour begins (and ends) at the
Howard County Fairgrounds. Travel at your own pace, follow printed
directions. Also there will be a “query” on items observed along the
way and at the points of interest.
You will visit Gene Sauters collection of true American and Foreign
Classic Cars. Later you will visit the Benjamin Banneker Historical
Park & Museum ( The 142-acre site is dedicated to telling an inspiring
story.) Your “Haycation” includes a visit to the Howard County Farm
Museum, a vintage auto restoration shop, an Alpaca farm and an ice
Cream stop! There is a separate charge for ice cream
All prices are quoted per person. There will be prizes awarded for
correct answers to the query and for the longest distance driven to
the tour. During the Dinner Program there will be a Slide Show featuring
pictures of cars and stops on the tour.
Door prizes will be drawn using the dinner
tickets.
Pre-Registration Required

Nice photos. I really like the two featured cars too. The coral one and the airflow.

Just a thought

What would happen if Chrysler decided to make (revive the name) Desoto?

To make something like the "Desoto Prowler"

Would that then make the Desoto ineligible for this type of event?

Who'd imagine Plymouth, Olds, Mercury, and Pontiac could become "orphans"? In the late '70s Olds Cutlass was the #1 selling car in the US.
T-Birds and Corvairs are not really orphans, if one goes by defunct models and not makes, most of the cars ever made could be included.
However more the merrier is always a fun approach. Looks like a fun day, diversity of cars makes it far more interesting than marque exclusive meets.
