This article features some of the events and outings which the Shade Tree A's of Augusta, Ga participated in during their tour to Lancaster, Pa in the summer of 1999. The round trip from Augusta to Lancaster and back encompassed approximately 1,400 hot miles with temperatures in the 100s during the entire week.
For the Shade Tree A's, the tour's starting point was Al's restaurant in North Augusta, SC. for breakfast, of course. This was to be our last southern style breakfast for a week. The club also sponsored the southeastern leg of the MARC tour and members from other clubs joined us at Al's for the tour. The 'woody' belongs to Dale Gosa of Jacksonville, FL.
First night's stopover was in Burlington, NC at the Holiday Inn. where we met up with members of clubs from Charlotte, NC and Columbia, SC. That's Sheila McPherson waving from their Tudor.
During the week long meet, one of the events was the judging of the Touring Class.
This 1928 Model A Air Compressor turned a lot of heads.
The compressor was towed by a pickup that was entered in the Touring Class Judging
Back outside in the hot sun many enjoyed searching for that much needed part.
Here we see three brave Shade Tree A members posing for an Amish farm photo.
The three Model A's on the right belong to Shade Tree A members. The coupe is an 'original' unrestored gem that had just recently been rejuvenated during the week we were in Lancaster. The owner had seen us pass through town on the way to Lancaster and got the 'fever'. With the help of the shop owner shown in this photo, the coupe was resuscitated and back on the road.
Model A's posed for a photo in front of Great Falls, SC "Old Town" area store fronts. The town's in the process of a restoration project and the committee felt that such a photo would help in their campaign efforts.
