The where and when of summer travel

It’s been busy here at Old Cars Weekly with the size change and our upcoming Guide to Auto Restoration, upcoming Chevrolet book and planning for the Iola Old Car Show, but I think I have finally nailed down part of my travel for the year. If you’re heading to any of these events, be sure to say “Hi!”

2010 CCCA Museum “Experience,” June 4-6, Hickory Corners, Mich.

MSRA Back to the 50′s, June 18-20, St. Paul, Minn.

Iola Old Car Show, July 8-11, Iola, Wis.

Pierce-Arrow Society National Meet, July 13-17, Rochester, Minn.

Concours of the United States at Meadow Brook Hall, July 25, Mich.

I am looking forward to a great show season, particularly the first of these stops — the CCCA Museum Experience — since it will feature closed Classics. Although most people prefer a wind-in-your-hair drop top, I have long favored the looks of a well-proportioned coupe or a smart sedan. This meet promises plenty of both.

Here’s just one of the cars you can expect to see at the event, a 1930 Lincoln with Judkins coupe coachwork:
